  • While the 1986 edition was no classic, it's light years better than this update, which naturally opened without being screened for those ultimate villains, the critics. show more

  • The Hitcher is the Jessica Simpson of psycho killer flicks - cheerfully in touch with its own brainlessness. show more

  • The Hitcher's main problem is that many of the title character's dirty deeds are done off-camera. Instead of seeing Ryder trap his victims before he kills them, the audience is treated to plenty of butchered corpses that seem to magically appear after Ryder leaves a room. show more
