Excellent movie! Loaded with suspense throughout the entire film. Absolutely loved it! Edmond O'Brien and Frank Lovejoy were excellent as the two who picked up the "Hitch-hiker" William Talman.

Two friends on a fishing trip pick up a stranded motorist who turns out to be a psychotic escaped convict. This sociopath has already murdered other good Samaritans in his efforts to evade authorities. He sadistically taunts and threatens the two men and perversely delights in telling them that he has them both marked for death sometime before the end of the trip. His destination is a ferryboat in Baja, California, which he hopes will help him get to the mainland. The hostages hope to stay alive long enough to escape or be rescued by Mexican authorities.

" This fast-paced lowbudget thriller directed by the only woman directing in Hollywood, Ida Lupino, at the time is absolutely worth a watch. It's inspired upon a true story about a killer hitch-hiker who is found out so he hijacks a car with two men to take him to Mexico before the law takes him. When he arrives he will kill the two men who only wanted to go fishing. Later Perry Mason regular William Talman steals the show as the psycho. Lupino seems to have been a cool chick that took on projec"
