Hi,
My sister is a film buff but cannot remember this film at all.
It was about some guy that raced against someone and got killed. His Spirit comes back as a black car with blacked out windows. He then proceeds to race all the guys that killed him individually, killing them in various ways and various smashes,etc. Until he gets to the leader of the gang, and then he vanishes.
Something like that. But all the way through he disappears into a little light that "wooshes" of into the sky.
I'm not going insane am I ??? As I also remember a cartoon called something like Jayce and the wheeled warriors where he travelled the universe with a group of others, racing their cars against cars made of plants, etc. Very odd. I didn't believe that it really existed for years until I saw it on in the background of a homemovie !!
Cheers

Well done H_S recorded it and watched it for the first time this morning, This has a story line that could have only come out of the 80's, pure fantasy but god damn its entertaining!

Although I am still a little confused as to why he came back as Charlie Sheen and not himself to avenge his death own death and why did he hand over the single most important piece of evidence i.e. his car to his little brother at the end!

Surely once his bro was stopped driving that bad boy by the fuzz he would be fingered as the main suspect for the murder of 5 local boys!

I was also bemused as to one of the final shots of the VeeHicle clearly shows a large Plymouth or Dodge sticker in the rear window that was not there during the rest of the movie!

Finally weren't Sherilyn Fenn's **** awesome [Eek!] !

It's funny, I've watched it a few times and never even thought about the giving of the car bit at the end haha. But I am left wondering each time why come back as Sheen.

MM,

VeeHicle... [Smile] I love it! What is with that anyway? When I was growing up they were called CARS...

BTW, Did you know that the guy who plays that plays "Rughead" (Clint Howard) is Ron Howards brother and he's been in some of his films?

Was he also not that annoying kid from Gentle Ben, did anybody else just watch that series hoping that one day Gentle Ben could not take being "Gentle" anymore and having being petted once to often by that squeaky Howard brat, reverted back to a wild beast and give him a damn good mauling!

Anyway back to the wraith I am also pretty sure that if you look closely you can actually see a Chrysler badge moulding on the front of the VeeHicle!

'The Wraith' is a great film, and has a great soundtrack too...'Hearts Vs Heads' by Stan Bush is amazing.
