Okay, you can't deny that The Hitcher inspired this movie, and you think, sarcastically "Oh, I can just imagine". Well, I'd hate to say it, but you're wrong. I've seen this film, many a time. This quite tense movie has great plotting, and believe it, Hamill pulls off his hitch hiking psycho convincingly. I was impressed by the structure of the story, situation after situation. Sevina Gershak, really good, as are our four leads, plays a Russian immigrant married to cop Dudikoff. Obviously she's had enough. This seemingly arranged marriage isn't working, and I must admit, I did find Dudikoff irritating. Hopefully that hairy scene with him, tied down the front bonet of a car as it hurtles down a mountainside, woke him up a bit, and made he reevaluate his priorities, but I don't think it did too. Also to begin with, he's on crutches, so he's limping throughout. The guy doesn't learn. This film with it's violent moments, leads up to a little twist towards it's conclusion, never letting up on the tenseness of the film, where we're greeted with acting presence, Mitchum, who was Hamill's psychiatrist. I wish we had more screen time with Mitchum. Being a Hitcher fan, I had to see this out of curiosity, and while it's not as good as that cult classic, here's a tense B grader you shouldn't overlook, save for a stupid after ending scene with Hamill. The performances are good, though sometimes Hamill does ham it up, but it's fun seeing him in this role, and he does like taking photos too.
