Oh my. This film was a blast. That is, if you like bad dialogue, bad acting, cheesy attempts at sleaze, hair-raising melodrama, minimal gore and one of the lamest psycho's to hit the screen in cinema history - then HITCHER IN THE DARK might be right up your alley. Let's see, some spoiled rich kid goes on a murder spree picking up young female hitch-hikers with his big ass camper. He drugs them with spiked soda, takes pictures of them undressed while they are lying unconscious on a bed ... then he slits their throats and dumps their corpses in a swamp. Snack time for the local Alligators. So one day while cruising a camp site he spotts a blonde chick dancing (to horrible music) infront of a bunch of people (hilarious scene!). After being told by two girls that he 'looks like a fag anyway' - because he refuses to drive them to a Madonna (?) concert - he follows blonde chick who's about to run away from her cheating boyfriend. He offers her a ride, a spiked soda ... and a slap in the face. SLAP! Honestly, I've never seen a movie where people get slapped in the face that many times. Psycho-boy slaps blonde chick, blonde chick slaps psycho-boy. Blonde chicks boyfriend gets slapped by some guy. Psycho-boy slaps blonde chicks boyfriend. Blonde chicks tries to escape and gets slapped by psycho-boy. Slap, bang, ouch! And it never stops Anyways, psycho-boy keeps blonde chick hostage in his big ass camper because she reminds him of his own mother. You see, psycho-boy's Mom was a Russian tennis playing pro (I think) and ran off with her lover back to Russia when psycho-boy was nothing but a kid. The kid never got over that. Made him snap. So psycho-boy cuts off blonde chicks blonde hair and dyes them black. Just like his Mom's. Will the now black haired chick escape psycho-boy and his damn camper? Watch the movie and you'll know Other stuff to look out for: Framed picture of the Russian Mother. Sudden violent outbursts by Psycho-boy. Miss Wet T-Shirt contest. Soda served in a thermos. Boobies. 'PIG' carved with a knife into Blonde chicks boyfriend's chest. Sleazy polaroid snapshots. One Alligator. Shriek Show released this Umberto Lenzi "classic" on DVD not too long ago. Video: There might be slivers of picture missing since Shriek Show apparently fucked up the correct aspect ratio.There are a few scenes with heads cut off though but that didn't really bother me actually. However, it's 16:9 enhanced and looked marvelous on my 16:9 rear projector. Audio: The usual 2.0 mono track. Not good but not very bad either. Extras: Umberto Lenzi Interview and three trailers.
