The Hitcher (1986)

Director: Robert Harmon
Starring: Rutger Hauer, C. Thomas Howell, Jeffrey DeMunn, Jennifer Jason Leigh
Budget: $6m
Box Office: $8m

Plot: Cult classic in which C. Thomas Howell does what his mother told him never to do, and regrets it. Picking up hitchhiker Rutger Hauer, he finds himself in a genuinely chilling game of cat-and-mouse with a prolific serial killer, apparently capable of taking out entire police stations in complete silence, and fond of leaving severed fingers in your chips. Hauer’s John Ryder is fascinating, in that he seems to want to be stopped, and to have chosen Howell for the job. People tend not to forget what happens to Jennifer Jason Leigh.

The Hitcher II: I've Been Waiting (2003)

Director: Louis Morneau
Starring: C. Thomas Howell, Kari Wuhrer, Jake Busey

Plot: Incredibly, Howell signed up for this very belated knock-off sequel. 17 years on he’s now a cop with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, forced to confront another psychotic hitchhiker. Fate can be so cruel. This instalment’s Hitcher is Jake Busey. Psychological nuance is not the order of the day.

You've obviously never been tortured... not that I have but I can imagine it would be more painful than clicking a button. More

23 Why the clicking?
Why do you think people will click through 40 pages loading? It would be much less annoying to have it as a scrolled list down a few pages. Gave up clicking at 11. Torturous. More
