Review As the opening frames for The Hitcher inform us, 48,000 people die each year on the road each year. I know these sorrows have a variety of causes. Some are pure tragic accident, some the fault of inebriation, and some the fault of forgetting a turn signal or not watching a blind spot. Somehow, I doubt being sliced up by Brits in the middle of the New Mexico desert registers in the top five...After attempting to briefly educate us about the perils of driving, The Hitcher (a remake of the 1986 cable standby) then jumps straight into the action...The amazing thing about The Hitcher is that while you can sit down and rethink its plot and realize what an empty movie it is, it's impossible to take your eyes or mind off of for long enough to let the stupidity sink in...While the script leaves much to be desired, it provides a lower number of groan-level disbelief moments then the average horror fare.

James Berardinelli's ReelViews ...lots of blood, attractive leads, and an indomitable murderer.
Peter Hartlaub, San Francisco Chronicle ...contains profanity, gore and brutal violence...Bay Area residents who use casual carpool may want to skip this one.
