Critic Reviews for Hitch Hike to Hell

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (1)

the direction here is unflashy and workaday, even pedestrian, and much of the dialogue... comes across as over-earnest and stilted. Nonetheless, like its antihero, it conceals beneath its blandly wholesome exterior some shocking transgressions.

By conventional standards, the shoestring-budgeted HITCH HIKE TO HELL isn't a particularly well produced work. But man, does it pack a disorienting, primal punch.

January 7, 2020 | Full Review…

Hitch Hike to Hell is a sleazy 1970s exploitation movie that offers up very little from its basic premise and does exactly what it says in the title.
