Overview
Whilst driving in heavy rain on a deserted road, Jim Halsey (C. Thomas Howell) pulls over to pick up a hitchhiker (Rutger Hauer). Halsey quickly regrets his decision to stop as the hitcher pulls a knife on him and nearly forces the car of the road.

In a narrow escape Halsey manages to leave the hitcher behind on the road. However, his nightmare has only just begun as a terrifying and psychotic game of cat and mouse ensues with all who pass on the road becoming unwitting victims of The Hitcher.
