The story in “The Wraith” is about a mysterious stranger who shows up in an Arizonan town terrorized by a gang of brutal drag-racers led by Packard. At the same time does a mysterious car show up too and challenge the gang to a race one by one. The races end with the death of one of the racers. But when the police show up, the corpse is in perfect condition and missing the eyes.
“The Wraith” is an entertaining movie with a good story, fast car races and a fairly good cast that includes Charlie Sheen, Sherilyn Fenn and Randy Quaid.
This is one of those types of movies that can be seen several times and it has actually withstood the test of time quite well. If you haven’t already seen “The Wraith” then you should take the time to sit down and watch it because it is rather enjoyable.
