This was one of the first horror films I ever saw and it still freaks me out everytime I watch it Rutger Hauer plays a hitchhiking nut who accepts rides from people and gives them something in return a slow and painful death The Hitchers next target is a young man named Jim Hallsey C Thomas Howell who pretty much kicks ass The Hitcher tries his usual methods of scaring the piss out of his victim but Jim isnt taking any of his shit They wind up playing a deadly game of cat-and-mouse while the bodies pile up along the roadside Convincing performances by EVERYONE make this movie one of the great classics of modern cinema Jesus C Thomas Howell is the bomb Even in that movie Soul Man But youve already seen this movie right If not you should head over to DISNEYcom instead Because this movie is definitely a prerequisite for any horror fan or DVD collector in general So heres the review of the DVD itself VIDEO The movie is presented in normal non-anamorphic widescreen only but that is just fine with me It looks fantastic with the blood really standing out against the rest of the surroundings I didnt notice any compression problems or anything Beautiful transfer but they could make this movie look like a Gameboy game and Id still love it AUDIO The sound is Dolby 51 and Dolby 2 Channel and it sounds great Its definitely sounding better than it ever has before There are some great uses of the surround because most of the movie is driving and there are some rather nice explosions EXTRAS Ill admit that the disc is rather lacking in this category However it does have some great Cast and Crew Bios Unfortunately thats all it has But the menus are really kick-ass They show some killer scenes from the movie in the rear-view mirror at the topits so cool
