Pretty interesting. Ghosts of the past can haunt you, but you must encounter them!
24 April 2007 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

Susan Anspach(who had a son with Jack Nicholson named Caleb) stars in this episode of "The Hitchhiker" called "Dead Man's Curve". Anspach is Claudia a romance novelist who's all grown up with a little bit of fame and one day she decides to return to her small town and attend her high school reunion. Like anyone who moves away from town she has secrets hidden and must face ghost of the past. Upon returning and receiving greetings she meets the young town hunk named Lance(Michael Schoeffling) and they both start a hot steamy love affair. And just to mention Anspach is very sexy in a raw kind of way. Yet Claudia encounters a past love the now tough and in my opinion corrupt Sheriff Lee(played by veteran sci-fi character actor Michael Ironside). And finally the secrets come out that one of Claudia's novels is similar and based somewhat on the death of Lance's father! Really fiction starts to become real life! In the episodes end Claudia is living out her real novel only writing the final chapter with a happy ending in which she encounters and conquers her biggest ghost of the past the town sheriff Mr. Lee. Overall a fine episode that was well written with good acting.
