The story is believable, Awesome movie!!
24 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Wow. I don't know if i was just in a mood or what but this movie scared the crap out of me. The tag line on the DVD cover is "you will never take your eyes off the screen" and it was correct. I was glued to the TV from beginning to end, tensing up, closing my eyes but still watching, I had to use the bathroom, but i refused to pause it. The plot is so real, that is why it scared me. The acting isn't bad, not for a B horror film, the cinematography could have been better, but i have seen much worse. The movie only runs 90 minutes, but i swear it seemed longer because i was enthralled in the story. It's your average hitchhiker story, except the hitchhiker, he's nice looking, you like him even though you know he's a bad person. I have never seen any of these actors and actresses before but I think they did a great job. I do not know why something like "The Hitcher" gets in theaters but something actually good, like this movie is thrown to DVD, other than the fact that it is extremely graphic and the teeny bloopers wouldn't be able to watch it. I really enjoyed this film and would recommend it to everyone. 4 out of 4.

The DVD is unrated, but there is scenes of rape, language, severe violence, sexual situations other than rape. 90 minutes
