In a career that has encompassed indie, cult, mainstream, and cinema from a range of different countries, Rutger Hauer has offered movie audiences a vast array of characters, in an eclectic grouping of genres. Born in Holland, Hauer was something of a scallywag as a youth. Troubled, rebellious, unpredictable. Stints in the army and in psychiatric institutions followed his young life before becoming an actor. As an actor too, he’s remained somewhat rebellious and unpredictable. His choices have raised eyebrows. As for his on set antics? He’s well known for his intensity. Very much a method actor, Hauer gets under the skin of his characters, bringing to his roles, especially his most memorable turns a depth beyond what’s on the page. Often his fellow actors have felt actual intimidation when Hauer gets in the shoes of his darker characters. »
"If you’re in the La area, thanks to the great people at Screamfest, we hope you’ll come by and take advantage of this rare opportunity to catch The Hitcher on the big screen and buckle up for a road horror action film as scary as they come,” the film’s writer Eric Red told Dread Central. “We’ll be there to talk about the making of the picture so pull over and stop by, even if your mother told you never to do this."
Taking place this coming Wednesday, April 21, at 8pm in Los Angeles at the Downtown Independent Theatre (251 South Main Street, L.A., CA 90012), this rare screening of 1986’s The Hitcher (which stars C. Thomas Howell as a desert traveler marauded by the crazed Rutger Hauer in the titular role) will be followed by a Q&A with the flick’s writer Eric (Near Dark, 100 Feet) Red and director Robert Harmon. »
Unshakable truth: Everything’s better with Sean Bean. Were it not for his presence in that wretched 2007 remake of director Robert Harmon’s “The Hitcher”, I never would have watched the damned thing. The talented actor’s latest endeavor, the stylish 2010 thriller “Ca$h”, looks pretty snappy, but then again, I’m a pretty big Sean Bean fan, so make of that what you will. However, even if you’re not quite sold on the actor’s inherent greatness, chances are the trailer embedded below will cause you to greatly anticipate the film’s upcoming theatrical release on March 26th. What’s it about, you ask? Sean Bean wants his cash back, and he’ll repeatedly pop you in the nose until you give it up. Now that’s gangster. »
