The iconic 80s film The Wraith is set to be the latest addition to the Vestron Video Collector’s Series, Lionsgate’s collection of cult classic Special Edition Blu-rays loaded with special features.
Set to be released this July, The Wraith stars Golden Globe® winner Charlie Sheen (2002, Best Television Actor — Musical/Comedy Series, “Spin City”), Nick Cassavetes (Face/Off, The Hangover Part II, TV’s “Entourage”), Golden Globe® nominee Sherilyn Fenn (1991, Best Supporting Actress — Television, “Twin Peaks”), and Academy Award® nominee Randy Quaid (1973, Best Supporting Actor, The Last Detail). The Wraith will be available on Blu-ray™ (plus Digital) for the suggested retail price of $17.99.
The film, written and directed by Mike Marvin is a turbocharged cult classic! “When four glowing orbs crash into each other over the Arizona desert, they leave in their wake a badass Dodge Turbo Interceptor — and its enigmatic, helmeted driver. The next day, the mysterious Jake (Sheen) appears in the town of Brooks, catching the eye of Keri (Fenn) and the ire of Packard (Cassavetes), the ruthless leader of a gang of street racers. When gang members start losing races — and lives — to the Interceptor, the recent death of Keri’s boyfriend suddenly seems connected to the arrival of Jake, the unbeatable car…and an avenging entity called The Wraith.”
