    I probably would, just for nostalgia sake. It's probably not even on DVD yet though...

    I checked a local movie net store and they have that, so it definitely is on DVD.

    My friend has the DVD. I have seen it in person, it does exist, and it is official. Not that is makes it a better movie, but it's good to know.

    Still need to borrow it.

    Hey, FH.
    HPD isa great Eastwood movie, man. Watch it, now. I guess already came to dvds. It´s really good, and i´ve heard that Goyer had plans to makehis 2001 GR script as a mix of HPD and Mad Max.
    But as we all know, his script is very bad. No GR soul around there.

    Wait, was HPD that film where Clint comes back with vengeance towards the city that let him be hanged?
    That's my favourite Eastwood movie ever!

    Awesome! Good to know this movie has moved to DVD... of course, not much hasn't these days eh? I'm gonna rent it sometime soon... then again, I could probably buy it for the same price as a rent.

    It´s really a surprise that exists someone who hasn´t saw this movie, specially in US. Here, in Brasil, i´ve watched so many times on tv.
    Here we call it "A Aparição".
    It´s very ok to the 80´s, of course. Now he grows old.
    But still cool. Same to another 80´s classic that we saw much on tv: James Spader´s "Tuff turf". Cheesy 80´s classic teen movie.

    that has to either be a bootleg or an import...
    found this interesting site about films which had scenes removed or were banned called the chopping list.
    http://www.cosmos.net.au/~hologram/chopping/list_home.html

    here is a direct link for the Wraith....just some extra nudity was cut out it seems.

    Maybe the fact that screenwriter Mike Marvin (real name: Michael Oliveros) wrote this originally as a treatment for a proposed Ghost Rider TV movie in 1980, riding the coattails of "The Incredible Hulk"´s sucess, can explain some things.

    A Ghost Rider TV series would be cool, but the original idea, obviously due to budgetary reasons, was that the Ghost Rider would just have a very pale face (in the original concept, he was a dead man brought to life to avenge wrongs) and a helmet with PAINTED flames.

    It was released on a so-so transfer by Platinum in 2003 (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B00008VGNJ/ref=ase_imdb-adbox/102-1198505-5360965?v=glance&s=dvd), but I´ve heard that Anchor Bay is going to re-release it anytime. Problem is, all those "anytime soons" by AB take years to materialize...

    There´s also a German edition

    Man, I completely forgot that Charlie Sheen was in this one.

    Seeing the different covers is pretty cool. I like how the movie sounds like a different one when it's in a different language. Interceptor? Much different than Wraith...

    Yeah, HPD kicks ass. Not quite as good as The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly, or Unforgiven, but damn close.

    Wow lol.

    Spawn got its ideas from Ghost Rider. Ghost Rider was made long before Spawn.:rolleyes:

    Spawn was an okay movie. I have the DVD.

    But Ghost Rider will beat it so bad.
