Cult Movie Essentials: The Wraith (1986)

Packard Walsh (Nick Cassavetes) and his motorized gang control and terrorize an Arizona desert town where they force drivers to drag-race so they can ‘win’ their vehicles. Walsh stabs teenager Jamie Hankins (Christopher Bradley) to death for being intimate with a girl whom Walsh wants for himself, the mysterious Jake Kesey (Charlie Sheen) arrives, an extremely cool motor-biker with an invincible car.

Jake befriends Jamie’s girlfriend Keri Johnson (Sherilyn Fenn), takes Jamie’s sweet brother Billy (Matthew Barry) under his wing and manages what Sheriff Loomis (Randy Quaid) can not – the methodical and otherworldly elimination of Packard’s criminal gang.
