R | | Horror
After picking up a traumatized young hitchhiker, five friends find themselves stalked and hunted by a deformed chainsaw-wielding killer and his family of equally psychopathic killers.
In the original script, the Hitchhiker was 15-16 years old. The filmmakers later decided to changed her age to make her about the same age as the principal cast.
The film which you are about to see is an account of the tragedy which befell a group of 5 youths. It is all the more tragic in that they were young. But had they lived very, very long lives, they could not have expected, nor would they have wished ...
When the hitchhiker first shoots herself, the exit hole in the back window is jagged. In all other shots afterward it is perfectly round.
