The girl by the side of the road. You've seen her standing there. Thumb out. Smiling. There are thousands like her all over America. And you've heard about what happens to some of them when they get in the wrong car. This movie is about one of these kids. And about her family. But it could be about your family. Where is your daughter tonight?
This is one of my favourite made-for-tv movies from the '70s! It starred Charlene Tilton of "Dallas" fame, and Dominique Dunne. It was made during a time when tv movies were trying to teach a moral message. I haven't seen this movie since the early '80s, but the images it showed are memorable. It was about a girl (Charlene Tilton) that works down at the beach. She is saving for a car, and the only way for her to get to this area is by hitchhiking. There are news reports on the radio warning against hitching because there have been a rash of young girls in the area that have been murdered by hitching a ride & never making it to their destination. This movie is not graphically violent, it's actually funny in parts. You never see the guy that's committing these murders. Instead, you see the car with it's chromed exhaust, and super-tinted windows from every angle possible before he traps his victims. The victims, of course, are only clad in bikinis or halter tops & jeans, you see them get in, laughing & thanking the guy for picking them up, then the next scene is the victims clothes on the ground, and the murderer driving over them. It's a pretty strong message, and makes a point without being graphic. It would be nice to see this movie again, and have it available on DVD or VHS because it's a movie that has left an impression with me.
