SHORT TAKES

The Hitcher

The Hitcher

Director: Dave Meyers

Language: English

This remake of the 1986 cult thriller is, as you'd expect, all gore and action. A fun vacation for a young couple (Zachary Knighton and Sophia Bush) turns into a nightmare after they pick up a middle-age hitchhiker named John Ryder (Sean Bean) — who turns out to be a psychopath. When Ryder attacks them with a knife, the two kick him out of their vehicle. But the terror continues when they spot Ryder riding in a wagon with a family who are later found dead.
