Ghostriders was one of those films that lurked on the shelves of mom and pop videostores daring you to rent it back in the late ’80s. It promised an old West epic with skeletons facing off. What more could you want out of a video box? Now the film is getting upgraded to Blu-ray. Here’s the press release from MVD Entertainment Group:

| THE OLD WEST MEETS OLD-SCHOOL HORROR IN VERDUGO ENTERTAINMENT’S ‘GHOST RIDERS’ MAKING ITS LONG-AWAITED DEBUT ON BLU-RAY AND DVD VIA MVD ENTERTAINMENT GROUP.|
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).
Verdugo Entertainment has teamed up with distribution partner MVD Entertainment Group to bring collectors a fully loaded special edition Blu-ray packed with hours of all-new bonus material produced exclusively for this release including an audio commentary with producers Thomas L. Callaway & James Desmarais and moderator Steve Latshaw, a new making of documentary, a vintage making of featurette, photo galleries, trailers and more!
MVD Director of Acquisitions Eric D. Wilkinson coordinated with Verdugo Entertainment to put GHOST RIDERS in the hands of collectors. “I’m proud to say that MVD continues to be the perfect distribution partner for cult classic films and “Ghost Riders” is yet another video store staple from the 1980’s that was long overdue for its release on physical media. I’m excited to add this to my collection and I’m confident my fellow collectors will too!” “Ghost Riders” will also be making its debut on standard DVD.
