This was released in an era where horrors and thrillers were becoming landmarks and where the older generation of cinema was slowly changing to the modern generation and as I was watching The Hitcher it did bring back memories of the older classic thrillers but also at the same time, was the start of something new and became the dawning of a new era. There were many moments that did give me chills... read more

A good movie

Since I kept hearing good things about this flick, I was really eager to watch it. To be honest, I'm not usually a big fan of those cheesy 80's action movies.

" Date: 3/27/2020 Viewed: Youtube Re-Watch Note: I haven't seen this movie in almost 15 years and this movie still holds up very well. This movie is a great horror thriller movie from start to finish. I love the atmosphere that this movie has because it really feels creepy and chilling at times. The movie really has you on the edge of your seat on what is going to happen next because there's a lot of suspenseful moments in the movie. I also love Rutger Hauer's menacing performance because he i"
