I mentioned this as part of a thread on Trick or Treat, but wanted to further share my experience with this DVD. For the uninitiated, The Wraith is a decidedly guilty pleasure from 1986 starring Charlie Sheen, Sherilyn Fenn, Randy Quaid, and Nick Cassavetes about a mysterious entity that wreaks havoc on an evil drag racing gang (predating Fast and the Furious by a good 15 years). A veritable treasure trove of (I like to think) intentionally horrible dialogue, this one should not be missed by any fan of bad '80s sci-fi / horror and cars (and Ms. Fenn as well). The DVD is from Platinum Disc Corporation, and I've only seen it at Best Buy (along with the aforementioned Trick or Treat) for $5.99. I have not found it available online anywhere. Pros: This is definitely NOT the original PG-13 cut of the film that was released in theaters. It has additional sex and violence that were also in the long out-of-print Image LD (probably the same transfer). A bonus if you've only seen the film in theaters or on cable. Although this appears to be a CBR transfer (common with budget labels), the picture quality is surprisingly watchable. It has decent DD 2.0 surround audio with a period soundtrack from the likes of Ozzy Osbourne, Motley Crue, and Robert Palmer. The titular character's vehicle is an actual Chrysler concept car from the day, if you're into such things. Like most Platinum Disc releases, it comes in the pretty but seldom-seen "super jewel case", which I would prefer to keepcases if they didn't crack so easily in shipping. Cons: There are no extras, not even a trailer. The main menu on the other hand might induce seizures in epileptics. You just have to see it... It is full-frame only and the framing looks quite poor overall. Although projected theatrically at 1.85:1 this transfer does not appear to be open matte, but rather panned-and-scanned from a hard-matted source. P&S is probably not the right term though; it looks like the transfer was just locked on the center of the 1.85:1 frame. For example, there are profile shots of the mystery car where the front and rear are hanging off-screen that would have looked perfect in OAR. The biggest caveat: I don't think this is a legitimate release, as I think Anchor Bay actually owns the rights (they did the fairly recent VHS release). Maybe they licensed it to Platinum Disc, but I kinda doubt it. Just be warned, this may not be a legitimate release; those with qualms might want to avoid it. I have seen this for sale on eBay (at typically inflated prices), but don't be fooled; you can probably find this title at any Best Buy in their "Special Value" section. I thought this somewhat of a find; I hope this helps out fellow fans of bad '80s cinema. By the way, what is the Wraith? In the immortal words of Clint Howard: "...a ghost, an evil spirit and it ain't cool!"
