Critic Reviews of "The Hitcher (1986)"VarietyMarch 26, 2009
A highly unimaginative slasher that keeps the tension going with a massacre about every 15 minutes.Time OutFebruary 09, 2006
It's a highly competent sick-fright version of the evergreen chase formula.New York TimesMay 20, 2003
Mr. Hauer, who has reportedly vowed not to play any more villains or crackpots, is probably making the right decision, if this is any measure of the sort of role that comes his way.Chicago Sun-TimesJanuary 01, 2000
I would have admired it more if it had found the courage to acknowledge the real relationship it was portraying between Howell and Rutger, but no: It prefers to disguise itself as a violent thriller, and on that level it is reprehensible.Antagony & EcstasyAugust 02, 2014
A cosmic horror film drawn out of a psychological thriller.Common Sense MediaDecember 15, 2010
Spare and engrossing original road slaughterfest.CinePassionFebruary 12, 2010

Feature debuts don't come much better than director Robert Harmon and screenwriter Eric Red's sleek, dream-like thriller about a naĆÆve college boy who crosses paths with devil in the flesh after taking a wrong turn on some lost highway.Bryant Frazer's Deep FocusFebruary 22, 2007
Without the original film's subtext of male bonding gone awry, nothing here has a shred of psychological resonance.Cinema em CenaApril 29, 2006
A partir de um conceito simples, o diretor cria tensĆ£o e transforma seu vilĆ£o (muito bem vivido por Hauer) em uma figura quase alegĆ³rica.FulvueDrive-in.comOctober 10, 2005
Rutger Hauer is so menacing as the title fiend that you'll never pick up a hitchhiker. An absolutely relentless horror-thriller.Reel Film ReviewsOctober 02, 2005
