What could be more terrifying than Rutger Hauer, at the zenith of his insolent 1980s beauty, a smirk on his face, eyes pierced by a barely human intensity, coldly, calmly announcing that he's going to kill you? One sequel, one remake and almost forty years of thrillers, thrillers and horror films later, the answer is still: nothing. Robert Harmon's masterpiece has found no equal in its killer and his almost supernatural resilience, in his nightmarish ubiquity under a blazing sun, in the ordeal endured by C. Thomas Howell, relentlessly pursued and accused of his assailant's crimes. Eric Red's script may have lost a few subversive elements along the way, but The Hitcher is nonetheless an unsettling, thrilling experience from start to finish.
