Despite the fact that The Hitcher is both conventional and ultimately hollow, it does take the viewer for a terrifying ride.
August 2, 2014
A cosmic horror film drawn out of a psychological thriller.
March 29, 2011
That kind of nonstop self-seriousness should wear thin after a while but director Robert Harmon makes the screenplay's unabashed cruelty more potent than churlish.
February 12, 2010
An uncanny frisson, plus a road of endless curves
August 30, 2009
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.

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.

This film is the reason Rutger Hauer is still a name that movie fans know.

Effective '80s horror movie. A relentless villain and some horrific scenes.

It's like a sadistic version of Duel, instead of a semi you get Hauer in all his creepy manic splendor.
March 4, 2003
Fairly effective little thriller.

Creepy, moody, implausible and impossible to take your eyes off of.
