The wraith has some weird personal memories for me, see my brother loved this movie. I’ve seen it a million times. As a kid I ended up hating this movie. Its a good movie, I just saw it so many times and he loved it so much I ended up hating the damned thing. However I did feel it deserved a review for nostalgia reasons and because it actually is a really good and original movie, at least for what it was.
A group of motor head gang members pretty much run an area. They steal, they rob and everyone knows it, but nobody can prove it. They also have a love of racing and occasionally force people into racing for their cars, Enter a mysterious stranger. He also likes to race, but he races for an entirely different reason.
He starts challenging these guys to races and when he starts winning, he kills them. forces them off the road, pulls ahead spins and crashes into them head on. All sorts of ways. Then his car somehow comes back together unharmed and away he goes. This wraith has his reasons, and they are good. If you are a car guy or gal that likes sexy cars and death, check this one out. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
