Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Like the same-titled 1986 cult favorite, this remake is a crash-and-burn action horror with intellectual pretensions. – Matt Zoller Seitz, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Rotten: ... about all the movie is effective at is insulting the audience. – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, Sep 7, 2011

Rotten: Perhaps most unforgivably, pic lacks suspense. The action scenes are directed credibly enough, but the nail-biting buildups and awful aftermaths are laid out mechanically and drained of emotional effect. – Ronnie Scheib, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: That [original] film was intellectually engaging as well as tangibly creepy, while the new remake is just plain bad, and boring to boot. – Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times, Sep 20, 2007

Creepy as hell!

Thumbs up on this very nicely updated remake of this 1986 chiller about a gorgeous couple pick up a psychopathic hitchiker. Sophia Bush and Zachary Knighton do a superb acting job! Very entertaining and a must-have for horror movie fans! Well done.

The most horrific thing about this entire movie is that no one's seen the original, which was far superior and very well made.
