Whilst driving in heavy rain on a deserted road. Jim Halsey (C. Thomas Howell) pulls over to pick up a hitchhiker (Rutger Hauer). Halsey quickly regrets his decision to stop as the hitcher pulls a knife on him and nearly forces the car off the road. In a narrow escape Halsey manages to leave the hitcher behind on the road. However, his nightmare has only just begun as a terrifying and psychotic game of cat and mouse ensues with all who pass on the road becoming unwitting victims of The Hitcher.

Nice if a little dated
- The Hitcher review by CP Customer
On reflection the story line of this 1980's thriller is very thin but it actually clips along at a decent pace and only drags in the last 15 minutes or so. Decent performances by all parties and although somewhat dated provides an acceptable hour or so of entertainment.
