Nothing says summer like a road trip movie, so we're setting off for California in this 1986 cult thriller. Things get interesting in West Texas when a young man picks up a mysterious hitchhiker who turns out to be an insane serial killer. Starring Rutger Hauer, C. Thomas Howell, and Jennifer Jason Leigh, this flick has more twists than a mountain road, but it lacked one thing when it premiered: an audience. Yes, it grossed even less than its $7.9 million dollar budget, but yet somehow it earned a sequel in 2003 and a remake in 2007. While both Siskel and Ebert gave this ride a “thumbs down,” director Christopher Nolan has called it one of his guilty pleasures. But is this movie more road war or road bore? We're sticking out our thumbs in hopes of catching a lift with The Hitcher!
