Trivia

Hitcher 2 was mid-production during 9-11-2001. Actors flying from Los Angeles and Vancouver were unable to travel due to the tragedy. The ending, and numerous scenes were re-written, as a consequence. Mackenzie Gray's character of the Lieutenant is the only antagonist not killed-off in the final scene, due to the grounding of planes through-out North America during 9-11. The director cast him 10 years later in Joy Ride 2, where he finally met his demise. See more »

User Reviews

'The Hitcher' is one of the last movies asking for a sequel, but here it is

Hitcher II, The: I've Been Waiting (2003) C. Thomas Howell, Kari Wuhrer, Jake Busey, Mackenzie Gray, Douglas MacLeod, D: Louis Morneau.

Cop Howell mysteriously seems to have an anniversary for the nightmare he had 17 years ago. This time, his tough cookie girlfriend (Wuhrer) experiences it next to him on a country road trip, where a new menacing hitchhiker (Busey) frames her with his machinations and those stupid cops won't believe her.

Obvious, needless thriller is just a refurbished remake, while suffering to not be on par with its predecessor from a key exclusion-Rutger Hauer.

Running Time: 93 minutes and rated R for strong violence.

RATING: ** (out of ****)
