Despite the fact that The Hitcher is both conventional and ultimately hollow, it does take the viewer for a terrifying ride.
January 4, 2018
This set-up is intriguing, and you wish director Robert Harmon had made more of it.
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.
December 15, 2010
Spare and engrossing original road slaughterfest.
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.
March 26, 2009
A highly unimaginative slasher that keeps the tension going with a massacre about every 15 minutes.

Without the original film's subtext of male bonding gone awry, nothing here has a shred of psychological resonance.
April 29, 2006
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.
October 10, 2005
Rutger Hauer is so menacing as the title fiend that you'll never pick up a hitchhiker. An absolutely relentless horror-thriller.

...essentially entertaining throughout...

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

Hauer's lunatic performance is the only thing that keeps The Hitcher from completely running off the road.
