Charlene Tilton hitches a ride into danger!
30 July 2001 | by (Weaverville, NC) – See all my reviews

Apparently, Charlene Tilton's turn on DALLAS had garnered her enough attention that somebody felt it permissible to give her a starring vehicle of her own, this luridly titled teleflick about teenagers who flirt with danger by accepting rides from strangers. Charlene is a teen with artistic ambitions who doesn't have her own wheels. Neither do most of her girlfriends. In order to get around, they all resort to hitching. Unfortunately for them, there's a sicko roaming the highways, picking up young girls and raping them. Guess who picks Miss Charlene up in the last reel . . . Not really a suspense movie, just a little melodrama that wraps the hitchhiking theme around the usual psychodrama and character development that usually fills these movies. The acting isn't bad, but the movie wasn't intended as anything more than a movie of the week.
