Movie Info

Years after being traumatized by a hitchhiker, Jim Halsey (C. Thomas Howell) is trying to piece his life back together. After being suspended from the police force, he decides to return to Texas to speak with a friend about his problems. He reluctantly agrees to let his girlfriend, Maggie (Kari Wuhrer), join him. As they drive, Maggie lets a stranded driver (Jake Busey) into the car. Halsey becomes suspicious and kicks him out, but the stranger returns, undeterred, to wreak havoc.

    It's the sequel to the original 1984 film and it's not great but sadly it's a little better than the remake to the original.

    Had I seen C. Thomas Howell in any major motion pictures since the 1980's? No. Should I have had any expectations of seeing a good film at all? No. Was this a good film? Not even close. So why am I angry? I'll tell you. The first Hitcher film is one of my favourite thrillers of the 80's that had you on the edge of your seat the entire film and actually had the balls to dispatch main characters along it's course. This film is nothing but a cheap and pathetic rip off of the previous film, right down to supposed "twists and surprises" that are so lame you begin to wonder why they attempted a sequel in the first place. Well you are in the same both with the rest of us poor saps who actually spent money (thankfully only $.79 in my case) on this stinker. The plot is simple, our hero from the original film (Howell) returns aged but still haunted by what happened to him 17 years ago. Because of this, both his job and his marriage are on the rocks so he decides to take a road trip (despite past experiences) with wife (Wuhrer) in tow. Along the way they run along to a stranger (Busey) who is essentially a replacement of the far superior Rutger Hauer in an inferior attempt to replicate the first films excitement. If you are a fan of the first film, AVOID THIS AT ALL COSTS. This is only a sequel in name, and even C. Thomas Howell must have known that this was nothing but a paycheck in an attempt to cash in on the classic original. If you haven't seen the first film, I would still reccomend that you avoid this, but perhaps you can find more redeeming qualities in this junk than I could. 3/10 (and I'm being generous)

    It's an ok road movie slasher but not as good or intense as the first or the remake!
