Rating: 3/5 -- There's no estrogen whatsoever in The Hitch-Hiker, as spare and muscular a picture as the 1950s ever produced. Full Review
The Dissolve
Oct 22, 2013
Rating: B -- This suspenseful film noir is superbly acted and sharply helmed by Ida Lupino, one of the few women directors in Hollywood of the 1950s. Full Review

Rating: 3/4 -- A lean, mean, nasty piece of work that deserves to be rediscovered. Full Review

Rating: 7/10 -- If they gave awards for holding a gun in every single scene of a film from start to finish, (William) Talman would have won. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- Lupino draws a performance of crackling malevolence from William Talman, as the serial killer physically and mentally scarred by his abusive childhood. Equally authentic is the impotent terror of weekend fishermen Edmond O'Brien and Frank Lovejoy. Full Review

This hell-for-leather 1953 noir demonstrates Ida Lupino's facility with actors and flawless pacing. Full Review

Product Description:

An acclaimed film noir thriller in which two vacationing men are held captive by a hitchhiking psychopath with one eye that never closes. Though years of more horrific violence and suspense have dulled its impact somewhat, it was way ahead of its time. Considered among Lupino's best work, this film was the progenitor of many, many films that would follow in its tire-treads and is a must-see.
