Critic Reviews of "The Wraith"Time OutJanuary 26, 2006
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.New York TimesAugust 30, 2004
Mr. Cassavetes is effectively black-hearted, and makes a striking figure, and Randy Quaid does a lot with the underdeveloped role of a local sheriff.Washington PostJanuary 01, 2000
There is all too little of the quietly charismatic Sheen and all too much of Cassavetes, who is a dead ringer for the young Hugh Hefner.Cinema CrazedOctober 20, 2016
The kind of revenge B movie you can enjoy thanks to its eccentric tone and unique hero.Sarasota Herald-TribuneMay 02, 2013
A big glop of low-budget Hollywood cheese, sliced from half a dozen other movies. Still, as a piece of '80s zeitgeist, it offers something of a glimpse into the national psyche of the time - not to mention the feather hairdos and jean jackets.TV GuideMay 06, 2008
A ridiculous mishmash of drag racing, ghosts, and science fiction.Film ThreatMarch 11, 2005
An imaginative, thrilling pieceLawrence Journal-WorldAugust 08, 2003
This movie makes no sense.Matinee MagazineJuly 25, 2002
An enjoyably trashy sci-fi/car racing action movie.
