What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Munyaradzi vumo Bad plot... dull ending.
Anthony Quinn Killer on the road — again.
Rob Peters The best part about this movie is its running time — a mere hour and 15 minutes. I don't think I would have lasted much longer.
|Mail & Guardian|
Shaun de Waal
Peter Feldman Talented actor wasted in soulless remake.
Ivan Sadler For horror fans there is a single inventive death, but for anyone else, this is just tired rubbish.
Anna Smith There's nothing subtle about The Hitcher, but its boundless enthusiasm for genre staples entertains in a silly sort of way.
Tim Cogshell Remake just about reaches the creepy heights of the original
James Simons A safe slasher flick with predictably unpredictable jolts of excitement, sunny-turned-stormy cinematography, a victim-turned-hero protagonist and a truckload of victims-turned-corpses.
James Berardinelli The lesson imparted by the 1986 movie was to avoid hitchhikers. The lesson imparted by the 2007 version is to avoid The Hitcher.
This is an unnecessary, redundant and flatly made remake of the 1986 film of the same name.
Tomatometer Interested in only cheap shocks, and gratuitious gore and torture.
