’80s Comedy ‘The Last American Virgin’ Due on Blu-ray Jan. 24 in MVD Rewind Collection

MGM’s cult-classic 1982 teen comedy The Last American Virgin will be released on Blu-ray Jan. 24 as part of the MVD Rewind Collection.

The film follows a close-knit group of high school friends, Gary (Lawrence Monoson, Mask), the shy guy; his friend Rick (Steve Antin, The Goonies), the ladies man; and David (Joe Rubbo, Hot Chili), the comic foil; and their exploits in pursuit of love — or at the very least — their first time.

The film also stars Diane Franklin (Better Off Dead), Louisa Moritz (One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest) and Kimmy Robertson (“Twin Peaks”) and features a classic ’80s soundtrack that includes songs from Devo, U2, Oingo Boingo, The Commodores, The Waitresses, The Cars, The Plimsouls and REO Speedwagon.

1980s Charlie Sheen Film ‘The Wraith’ Due on Blu-ray July 20 From Lionsgate

The 1986 film The Wraith arrives on Blu-ray (plus digital) July 20 from Lionsgate as part of the Vestron Video Collector’s Series.

The Wraith stars Charlie Sheen (“Spin City”), Nick Cassavetes (Face/Off, The Hangover Part II, TV’s “Entourage”), Sherilyn Fenn (“Twin Peaks”) and Randy Quaid. In the film, when four glowing orbs crash into each other over the Arizona desert, they leave in their wake a badass Dodge Turbo Interceptor and its enigmatic, helmeted driver. The next day, the mysterious Jake (Sheen) appears in the town of Brooks, catching the eye of Keri (Fenn) and the ire of Packard (Cassavetes), the ruthless leader of a gang of street racers. When gang members start losing races — and lives — to the Interceptor, the recent death of Keri’s boyfriend suddenly seems connected to the arrival of Jake, the unbeatable car and an avenging entity called The Wraith.
