In order to save his dying father, young stunt cyclist Johnny Blaze sells his soul to Mephistopheles and sadly parts from the pure-hearted Roxanne Simpson, the love of his life. Years later, Johnny's path crosses again with Roxanne, now a go getting reporter, and also with Mephistopheles, who offers to release Johnny's soul if Johnny becomes the fabled, fiery Ghost Rider, a supernatural agent of vengeance and justice. Mephistopheles charges Johnny with defeating the despicable Blackheart, Mephistopheles’ nemesis and son, who plans to displace his father and create a new hell even more terrible than the old one.

Huge comic books fan Nicolas Cage (he was once all set to play Superman – but luckily somebody pulled the plug on that one!) finally gets to play a superhero.
And while Ghost Rider may not exactly be the best-known character in the Marvel comics pantheon, he is definitely one of the coolest looking ones. After all, how may superheroes has a flaming skull and rides a supernatural motorbike?


  • Nicolas Cage had to have his Ghost Rider tattoo covered with make-up in order to play Johnny Blaze (Ghost Rider).

  • Nicolas Cage's hairpiece required three hours to apply every day.
