While driving through the New Mexico Desert during a rainy night, the college students Jim Halsey and his girlfriend Grace Andrews give a ride to the hitchhiker John Ryder. While in their car, the stranger proves to be a psychopath threatening the young couple with a knife, but Jim succeeds to throw him out of the car on the road. On the next morning, the young couple sees John in another car with a family, and while trying to advise the driver that the man is dangerous, they have an accident. While walking on the road, they find the whole family stabbed in the car, and John sees that the driver is still alive. He drives to a restaurant seeking for help, but the police blame Jim and Grace to the murder and send them to the police station. However, John kills the policemen and pursues the couple, playing a tragic and violent mouse and cat game with Grace and Jim. —Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
This remake trend is really annoying, only a few of them are good (Dawn of the Dead), others are abysmal (Psycho) but most of them are just mediocre, like The 2007 version of The Hitcher. The movie begins with a rabbit crushed by a fast car in the road. Man, that rabbit looks so fake! its clearly a CGI all the time...that is an awful way to begin a movie that wants to afraid the viewers. All the movie looks "too fashion", its "too pretty" everything (the leads, the photography, everything), thats not good in this kind of movies, there is nothing creepy here. The lead actress performance is horrible, and there is a shower scene were she is alone but she cover her tits! Why they made that scene...no one covers his/her parts when they are alone. Apart from a very few scenes (there is one really cool gore scene), this movie is pointless.
