The Wraith

Special Guests: Mike Marvin, Clint Howard, Jamie Bozian

Guest Co-Host: Patrick Bromley

Released in 1986, The Wraith was directed by Mike Marvin and stars Charlie Sheen as Jake Kesey, a new face in the town of Brooks, Arizona. Jake makes his appearance around the same time as a dark-helmeted, supernatural figure arrives; the mysterious Wraith of the title. This figure takes out members of Packard Walsh’s gang of goofs with his badass Dodge — using the seemingly indestructible car as a weapon.

We talked to writer/director Marvin along with Packard gangmembers Rughead (Clint Howard) and Gutterboy (Jamie Bozian). We’re joined by Patrick Bromley of the F This Movie podcast.
