The Hitcher

Never pick up strangers.


The Hitcher
This is a remake of an 1986 film with the same title, and oddly enough, even has the same scriptwriter involved. A young couple are travelling in unfamiliar territory, when they offer a hitchhiker a lift. He turns out to be a baddy, but they manage to escape. The next day, he returns to haunt them on their journey, and it's not long before they find themselves framed for a string of murders that he has committed. However, this time, he's met his match...

83 minutes.

Rob Peters quote iconThe 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.

Peter Feldman quote iconTalented actor wasted in soulless remake.

24.com
Ivan Sadler quote iconFor horror fans there is a single inventive death, but for anyone else, this is just tired rubbish.
1
BBC
Anna Smith quote iconThere's nothing subtle about The Hitcher, but its boundless enthusiasm for genre staples entertains in a silly sort of way.
5
Box Office
Tim Cogshell quote iconRemake just about reaches the creepy heights of the original
8
eye Weekly
James Simons quote iconA 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.
5
ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconThe lesson imparted by the 1986 movie was to avoid hitchhikers. The lesson imparted by the 2007 version is to avoid The Hitcher.
8
ScreenIt
quote iconThis is an unnecessary, redundant and flatly made remake of the 1986 film of the same name.
