Feature debuts don't come much better than director Robert Harmon and screenwriter Eric Red's sleek, dream-like thriller about a naïve college boy who crosses paths with devil in the flesh after taking a wrong turn on some lost highway.

A partir de um conceito simples, o diretor cria tensão e transforma seu vilão (muito bem vivido por Hauer) em uma figura quase alegórica.
| Original Score: 4/5

It's a highly competent sick-fright version of the evergreen chase formula.

Rutger Hauer is so menacing as the title fiend that you'll never pick up a hitchhiker. An absolutely relentless horror-thriller.
| Original Score: 3.5/4

It's like a sadistic version of Duel, instead of a semi you get Hauer in all his creepy manic splendor.
