VERDICT – 3/5
1) A psychopathic hitchhiker is after a young man who initially escaped from his murderous plan. The hitcher is not just chasing him relentlessly like a ghost but also framing the young man of all the murders.
2) Rutger Hauer played the intimidating title character of the remorseless killer without any motive.
1) It clearly borrowed the plot from Steven Spielberg’s Duel (1971).
2) The hitcher’s motive is never revealed. The whole movie is a violent thriller without any back-story.
Jim Halsey: They’ll catch you.
John Ryder: Yeah… sure. So what?
