Product Description:

Pasquale Festa Campanile (THE LIBERTINE) directed this late 1970s Italian exploitation film, a brutal and outrageous thriller set in the American Southwest. Franco Nero (DJANGO) stars as Walter Mancini, a washed-up alcoholic writer traveling with his wife, Eve (former Bond girl Clery), whom he frequently abuses and humiliates. However, when the couple picks up a stranded motorist named Adam, their trip takes an unexpected detour. Adam, a deranged and murderous fugitive, forces them to drive him to Mexico, passing the time by tying up Walter and torturing him for fun and raping Eve. Pursued by Adam's former partners, from whom he has stolen two million dollars, the dysfunctional trio ride through the desert as each plots their escape from one another. Shot with gusto, HITCH-HIKE soons spirals into a wild ride with unexpected twists and turns. Barely released in the USA, the film is a true gem in the world of exploitive cinema.

Description by Ryko Distribution:

While on a cross-country drive, a bitter writer (International superstar Franco Nero of DJANGO) and his beautiful wife (the stunning Corinne Clery of THE STORY OF O and MOONRAKER) pick up a stranded motorist (the one and only David Hess of LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT infamy). But when this hitcher turns out to be a depraved psychopath, their road trip takes a vicious detour into sex and savagery where the miles are marked in mayhem and vengeance is the ultimate rule of thumb.
