Wow. Lionsgate is certainly determined to trump everyone else in fantastic special edition releases lately. They’re running with the big dogs at the very least, after such fantastic editions of The Monster Squad, Cujo, My Bloody Valentine and The Gate. This time, they’ve set their sights on the 1986 flick, The Wraith and I’m not gonna lie – I am very excited!
From the Lionsgate press release:
The Wraith, the cult classic starring Golden Globe® winner Charlie Sheen (TV’s “Spin City”), Academy Award® nominee Randy Quaid (The Last Detail, Best Actor in a Supporting Role, 1973) and Clint Howard (Frost/Nixon), comes to Special Edition DVD from Lionsgate this March. The action-packed film tells the story of a mysterious figure seeking vengeance on a gang that’s been terrorizing a small town and includes music from some of Rock-n-Roll’s greatest legends including Ozzy Osbourne, Mötley Crüe, Robert Palmer and Billy Idol. The Wraith: Special Edition DVD features fresh packaging and all new special features including audio commentary, interviews with writer/director Mike Marvin (Sunstorm) and Clint Howard along with a featurette on the Dodge M4S that was used in the film.
Fantastic news but one thing I’d like to say to Lionsgate: I’ll wait for the Blu-ray, thank you very much.
