    I really enjoyed the original.Not holding out much hope for the new version I must admit.Every review I've read has panned it.

    I saw this ages ago

    Apart from a dodgy American accent Sean Bean was great in it. Truly unbelievable events and circumstances but great entertainment non the less.

    Its had awful reviews so far. A good way to get an idea of whether you will enjoy a film or not is to look here:

    http://uk.rottentomatoes.com/m/hitcher/

    Usually has reviews from people and many newpaper/magazine critics. Hasent led me wrong so far! I have no doubt i would hate/be disappointed this movie. I am a big fan of horror movies though, so ill likely wait and rent it on DVD.

    I rarely trust what reviewers or critics have to say, I am going to go and see it and make up my own mind, if it does turn out to be a load of poo I will have wasted 90minutes and a fiver - hardly the end of the world.


    I rarely listen to critics about movies, but they are usually on the ball about horror movies. I like rotten tomatoes because the site brings together reviews from loads of different critics. Though as a whole, it is not always correct, i hate to say due to the sheer amount of critics who review a movie, its usually at least semi accurate. Also for me at the moment, free time is scarse so i would hate to waste time on a duff movie!
    I saw 'them' the other day, that was enjoayble(ish) horror movie even though it was subtitled. Was a tad disapponted with the ending though. May want to check it out if you liked Hitcher, your bound to like 'them'.

    Yeh I was thinking that - saw the first one when it came out on video


    The Hitcher 2 only came out 4-5 years ago and was a direct continuation from the original with the same character/actor of the lad

    The old one was better.Still,i like Sean Bean(not like that you mongrels).

    Why,oh,why must hollywood have a pretty lass as the hero in recent horror films?

    Edit to remove spoiler!!!
