Ghostriders (1988) (MVD Visual) Blu-ray Review (Video)

From MVD Visual

Revenge is a hearty meal for phantoms of the prairie! On a dark and haunting night, all that is visible by the campfire light is the breath of vicious lawmen. The local preacher and townspeople gather on a lonesome prairie as the lawless career of desperado Frank Clements is about to end. Just as the hangman’s noose tightens around his neck, the most feared outlaw of 1888 shouts a curse of revenge on the town preacher – a curse which will haunt the preacher’s family through generations. One hundred years later, unsuspecting of the events in 1888, the town is prospering. Frank Clements and his gang return from hell to seek revenge against the preacher’s grandson and his family. The fight against the phantoms from the past proves futile, and they become unwilling victims of bloodthirsty outlaws. Weapons are defenseless against the phantom cowboys – you can’t kill what’s already dead!

Ghost Riders hails from the producers and writing team of the cult classic action extravaganza Action U.S.A. and boasts a great cast that includes legendary stuntman Bill Shaw (The Dirt Bike Kid), Jim Peters (Challenger), Mike Ammons (Action U.S.A.) and Arland Bishop (Black Snow).
