The Wraith

Film, Horror

Time Out says

Gang of comic-strip killer car-thieves is led by lip-curling psycho Packard (Cassavetes). New kid in town Sheen is sometimes himself, sometimes a leathered-up RoboDredd available for chicken run assignments in his blacked-out turbo roadster. Sherilyn Fenn is Packard's girl 'or nobody's', but was previously the squeeze of a Packard victim and is starting to come on strong to Sheen, apparently or spasmodically the deceased boyfriend reincarnated. The town (comprising one house, a burger joint and no citizen who isn't a teenager or a cop) is overseen by Sheriff Randy Quaid, who displays all the reverence the script deserves. Best joke is having one of the thugs know a word like 'wraith'.
