  • The problem with The Hitcher is it�s like every other horror film I�ve ever seen

      I honestly think it�s time for me to stop watching horror movies. They just don�t do anything for me any more. The remake of the 80s film The Hitcher proves this.

      The problem with The Hitcher is it�s like every other horror film I�ve ever seen. It has two college kids traveling alone on a deserted highway even

      though it would have been simpler and probably cheaper to fly.

      The come across a hitchhiker and, even though they are smart enough to not give him a ride immediately, decide to do it when they run into him later.

      And, like most horror movie victims, they make a variety of mistakes that just keep the movie going. They kick him out of their car and, instead of turning around and going back a couple of miles to the town they just passed, continue driving; something that eventually results in them having to pull to the side of the road to sleep and gives him a chance to catch up.

      And, despite having several chances to ...

      kill him, they make no effort to do it. I mean, come on now, moral objection or not, wouldn’t kill someone who is attempting to kill you or a loved one?

      After seeing the police in this movie, I�m hoping the New Mexico police department isn�t that stupid in real life. They are so anxious to convict the

      two college kids, they never once take into consideration they might be telling the truth; despite plenty of reason to believe them.

      Overall, I have to say this is one of the stupidest horror films I�ve seen and, like that hitchhiker you might pass on the road, it�s best to leave it on the shelf of your video store.
