The Hitcher Reviews

A highly unimaginative slasher that keeps the tension going with a massacre about every 15 minutes.

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

Mr. Hauer, who has reportedly vowed not to play any more villains or crackpots, is probably making the right decision, if this is any measure of the sort of role that comes his way.

I would have admired it more if it had found the courage to acknowledge the real relationship it was portraying between Howell and Rutger, but no: It prefers to disguise itself as a violent thriller, and on that level it is reprehensible.
