Although The Hitcher is billed as a Thriller, specifically, Rutger Hauer is at his scary best in the role of sometime slasher John Ryder. The result puts many so called horror movies to shame. Great leading cast alongside C Thomas Howell and well supported convincingly by Jennifer Jason Leigh. Lots of police characters maybe overdoes it on that side almost threatening to turn it into a cop drama but the regular shifts between suspense and conflict keep this one alive to the very end. Extremely well paced film and bit of a cult classic.
Films that run at least an hour or more ….
