The "Fast and the Furious" of the 80's, with a touch of sci-fi.

A completely stupid but enjoyable piece of 80s action/horror cinema that features a premise that could have only made sense in the 80s....

Batshit crazy storyline, shit futuristic car and 80's hair metal soundtrack. What's not to like really?

the wraith is laughably bad but in a good way and has a kick ass 80s metal soundtrack. It's also feels like a stereotype of 80s movies and has enuf cheese to stock a grocery store. if u like bad movies and 80s metal watch this right now!

Great movie. Awesome action, fun storyline, pretty good acting, amazing racing scenes! It's been a childhood favorite of mine ever since a buddy showed me. The best thing about the movie, hands down, is the stellar soundtrack by some of Rock's most underrated talents of the 80's. All in all, can't ask for a better time watching a movie.

One star for Charlie, two stars for the Mopar. An excellent HD restoration on Netflix.

Awesome movie, a classic..
He came back from the dead,to take his revege... The film is set in some desert area of Arizona, where Packard Walsh (Nick Cassavetes) and his gang regularly flaunt the law and generally make life unpleasant for the rest of the populace. One day, a young man going by the name of Jake (Charlie Sheen) arrives in town and begins networking with locals who are sick to death of Packard and his hangers-on. It seems that a while ago, Packard and his gang murdered a young man named Jamie Henkins, and now his brother, Billy (Matthew Barry) would give anything to settle the score. Meanwhile, Keri (Sherilyn Fenn) is just sick of Packard treating her like his personal property, and wouldn't feel any loss if the man turned up dead. Nor, for that matter, would the local sheriff, who goes by the name of Loomis (Randy Quaid), but unfortunately his hands are tied by procedure and regulations. I certainly didn't miss Packard after he was gone, but it seems the makers of the film missed the chance to do something visually exciting with any of the death sequences.

Naturally, this all changes when, coinciding with Jake's arrival, a wraith figure in the aforementioned supernatural car begins showing up and challenging Packard's gang members to races. The rules of the races as set by Packard himself are pretty simple: the first one to make it to a certain landmark that I cannot remember the name of wins the pink slip to their opponent's car. Of course, such a race against a car that really comes from beyond is not a remarkably good idea, but nobody accused Packard or his gang members of being particularly bright. So when Packard's cronies are suddenly turning up dead, still recognisable in spite of crashing and burning in what would be thousand-degree fires, both Packard and Loomis are determined to find out who the owner of this sleek machine is, and why they have it in for Packard.

The Wraith is a supernatural action horror film that is surprisingly good. The film has gotten many bad reviews, and is considered pretty bad. But The Wraith is actually enjoyable entertainment. A group of thugs murder a kid, and suddenly a new guy shows up in town. A short while after, a mysterious car appears and hunts down the gang members. The plot is simple, yet effective. The film blends elements of action and horror perfectly. There are some eerie parts in the film, nothing ever really scary, but a tad uncomforting. This is an entertaining film that is quite underrated and it doesn't deserve the flack it has received. Sure the film is pretty silly, but it has enough good elements to make it an enjoyable film. The fact that the director is able to combine action and supernatural horror into one film makes it watchable. The film isn't perfect, but it definitely is a film worth watching if you enjoy awesome car chases, horror and vengeance spirits returning to settle a few old scores. The films' acting is questionable, but this is a B movie, so what do you expect? The Wraith may not be the best supernatural horror flick around, but the fact that it combines action elements makes this an interesting film to watch. Add to that, a pretty good hard rock, pop and heavy metal soundtrack; and you have an entertaining film. A good addition to the supernatural horror genre.
