Critic Reviews for The Devil Thumbs a Ride
Lawrence Tierney's particular brand of sinister menace makes this "B" film one of the most jaw-dropping, startling examples of film noir I've ever seen.
Audience Reviews for The Devil Thumbs a Ride
it's the most fun i've had since 'detour'! if you're a fan of lawrence tierney, u gotta see this. and it's on youtube!!
This is a tough one to find, but worth the search. Tierney does an excellent job as the cold-blooded hitch-hiker from hell. The way Tierney manipulates the passengers is really quite something, and there are moments of true suspense in the friend's house. Some of the acting from the lesser characters can be a little corny, but Tierney is more than enough reason to watch. And the climax is especially good. A definite must see for anyone in the market for a hard to find gem or fans of the film noir genre.
