Critic Reviews for The Hitch-hiker
If they gave awards for holding a gun in every single scene of a film from start to finish, (William) Talman would have won.
There's no estrogen whatsoever in The Hitch-Hiker, as spare and muscular a picture as the 1950s ever produced.
This suspenseful film noir is superbly acted and sharply helmed by Ida Lupino, one of the few women directors in Hollywood of the 1950s.
Audience Reviews for The Hitch-hiker
A pretty good movie, but it could be better, especially now that there have been so many other movies like this one.
Great little Thriller by the only female directors of Hollywood's Golden Age, Ida Lupino. It starts out amazingly and then sort of peters out toward the end, but overall very enjoyable.
Hitch-hiker starts off really great with an incredible opening. Lupino's a great director and I wish she did more. The acting is great, namely Talman who makes you flat-out despise him. He's no Rutger Hauer, but this is more disturbing on a realistic level. Ultimately, it's good and not great, but definitely worth checking out.
