W - Who Is He?

Welcome to day twenty-three of the A to Z Challenge. If you're here for the first time or if you've forgotten already, this year's theme is movies! I am posting a quote, a character or two, and a brief synopsis of a movie for each letter. You then get to guess the movie in the comments. Answers will be revealed in the following day's post.

Answer to V: Van Helsing

We're almost to the end. Just four letters left. Today, we're going a little out of the mainstream. It's an indie sci-fi movie from the 80s. Good luck with this one.

Character
Jake Kesey, played by Charlie Sheen, is new in town. Who is this mysterious stranger with the scars? And how is he related to driver of the black sports car that's out for revenge?

Synopsis
After Jamie is killed by local car thieves who steal cars by cheating in street races, a mysterious stranger in a black sports car appears in town challenging the thieves. The stranger eliminates the thieves one by one. Who is the driver? And what is his relationship with the new kid in town?

I saw this one as a teenager and it has stuck with me for almost thirty years. I don't know why, since it was not very successful. It has developed a small cult following. It also includes a very cool prototype car that I wish had gone into production.
