October Horrors 2017 Day 3 – The Hitcher (1986)

3 October 2017 4:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Hitcher, 1986.

Directed by Robert Harmon.

Starring Rutger Hauer, C Thomas Howell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, and Jeffrey DeMunn.


Jim is delivering a car from Chicago to San Diego when he stops to pick up a hitchhiker named John Ryder who quickly reveals himself as a serial killer who kills anyone foolish enough to pick him up. Narrowly escaping from Ryder’s clutches, Jim soon finds himself being pursued across the desert road by his new foe – a foe who will not stop until he kills his new prey.

Hitchhikers are a favorite of the horror genre with them either being the unsuspecting victim about to be picked up a passing psychopath or, more often than not, it’s the hitch-hiker who is the psychopath hoping to catch a ride with his latest victim. For me, one of the best examples of this trope comes in the form of Robert Harmon »
