From filmmaker Michael Bay's Platinum
Dunes production company (producers of "The Texas Chainsaw
Massacre" and "The Amityville Horror") comes "The Hitcher,"
an update of the 1986 film of the same name.
Dave Meyers makes his feature directorial debut on the new
thriller, which tracks the terrifying trajectory of Grace
Andrews (Sophia Bush) and Jim Halsey (Zachary Knighton), a
collegiate couple who are tormented by the mysterious
hitchhiker John Ryder, a.k.a. The Hitcher (Sean Bean).
The young couple hit the road in a 1970 Oldsmobile 442, en
route to spring break. But their pleasure trip soon turns
into a waking nightmare. The initial encounters with Ryder
are increasingly off-putting for Grace and Jim, and they
bravely fight back when he ambushes them. But they are truly
blindsided when he implicates them in a horrific slaying and
continues to shadow them.
The open road becomes a suspenseful, action-packed
battleground of blood and metal as, in trying to elude not
only Ryder but also New Mexico State Police Lieutenant
Esteridge's (Neal McDonough) officers, Grace and Jim must
fight for their lives and face their fears head-on.
