An old but good horror series.
9 April 2002 | by (Hamilton, Ohio) – See all my reviews

I remember watching this series on HBO during the 1980's. Basically it's somewhat like a early version of Tales From The Crypt, with the Hitchhiker introducing the evening's story and at the end commenting on what happened to the lead characters. Really not as gory as Tales, it focused more on suspense to keep viewers interested. Not too many stations show re-runs of this series anymore (USA used to show this series in the early to mid 90's.)But really the only way you can see this series now is through one of HBO's additional channels. If you're looking for a good horror-suspense show then the Hitchhiker is for you, but if you're looking for a somewhat gory series, then I'd say stick with Tales From The Crypt.
