My other big passion from the mid-80s is the movie, THE WRAITH: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Wraith

Just heard that Lionsgate are releasing a Special Edition of the movie (with, finally after all these years), interviews with the Creator/Director, Mike Marvin; "Rughead" Clint Howard; a spot on the Dodge M4S that was the real car; and audio commentary during the movie.

I've, I don't know how many prints of this movie, including the ultra-rare Stereo LaserDisc, but the Region 4 DVD ('til now) has been the copy to have of the film.
If you like the show, the big site for it is with the guy who now owns the car (has been restoring it for years): Lyle's forum is amazing including a new section showing which explain how certain Special FX shots were done for the show with original photos from the film's Special FX / miniatures guy.

Some of the cast regularly visit the forums too.

Sorry, as you can see, I'm a FAN BOY of this as well... gush gush blah blah blah...

I really liked this movie too due to the fact Chrysler was heavily involved in this. I liked that Cosworth 2.2L engine in the PPG concept car.

And the newly-restored Turbo Interceptor has finally made it's first public appearance last month (Jan 2010) at the Starbird Car Show:

You'll finally see its true colour (there are lots of pics here so takes a while to go through them --- the best stuff is about 25-30 in...):

I see that 'THE WRAITH' Special Edition DVD came out on Monday (2nd March) on Region 1 only (so far), so it'll be an Amazon.com purchase for me too.

Sadly not my friend....

I plan to finally upgrade to blu-ray sometime this year. Have to make that leap sooner or later I suppose.

The audio and video quality on the newly released "The Wraith" DVD is definitely top-notch! I love that movie, too.

So is there any sign of this new edition getting released on region 2?.

It looks like a cool edition.

The two best things on this DVD are, for me, the Buddy Joe Hooker spot (played Hawke's biker buddy, Jimmy Blake on 'SWEET BRITCHES") where he explained (as he was Stunt Co-Ordinator), for the first time, the sad circumstances of how the Camera Grip guy died in the final duel sequence between Packard's Vette and the Turbo Interceptor.

And the second thing was Mike Marvin's superb commentary. I've waited 24 years to hear that and was so excited to hear it.

The Clint Howard and Mike Marvin spots are actually quite short (less than 5 mins each).

But the whole thing simply awesome, and it's still my all-time favourite film (even more so now).

Those special features sound a treat, I cant wait to get my hands on a copy.

Yeah its a big favourite of mine. Highlander, Flight Of The Navigator and The Wraith being my all time favourites.

Never forgot the day I first got to see The Wraith, Thanks Mark!.

Hi Mark. I see you over at the forum on www.thewraithcar.com sometimes. Any word on why the site has been down? Was a little bummed to see it not coming up. I heard he was prepping to make kits of the M4S. Really excited about that as you probably are.
