The Wraith is an American 1986 independently made action/supernatural film produced by John Kemeny, written and directed by Mike Marvin, and starring Charles "Charlie" Sheen, Sherilyn Fenn, Nick Cassavetes, and Randy Quaid. The film was released theatrically on 288 screens in the U.S. by New Century Vista Film Company (later New Century Entertainment Corporation).

The Wraith tells the story of a murdered Arizona teen who mysteriously returns from the dead as an all-powerful drag racing wraith intent on taking revenge on a gang of car thieves and their psychotic leader, who murdered the teen so the leader could then exert emotional control over the dead teen's girlfriend using intimidation.


Bright lights descend from the night sky, tracing routes over four desert highways, eventually converging on an isolated crossroads. Lightning flashes and blue smoke are the result of their high-speed collision, revealing a sleek, all black Dodge M4S Turbo Interceptor, driven by a black-clad and helmeted figure.
