This film has to be viewed with this in mind first: it is ridiculous and not meant to be scary.<br/><br/>I like &quot;Hitcher in the Dark&quot; a lot. It&#39;s no award winner, but what do you want? It&#39;s a low budget, late-80&#39;s slasher/thriller with a good dose of comedy and sleaze thrown in for good measure. I doubt Lenzi was even trying to make it scary. The &#39;killer&#39; is a preppy looking RV driver cruising the Virginia Beach coast on his daddy&#39;s dime. He picks up a girl and makes her life hell for a few days, and ends up paying for it in the end. Thrown in between is a cheesy plot, an angry boyfriend, lots of 80&#39;s beach people getting drunk and listening to horrible music, and some pretty nice looking chicks.<br/><br/>For the time it came out, it was a little ahead of it&#39;s time, too. Pretty much all the new thrillers are &#39;real life&#39; terror rides like &quot;Hitcher in the Dark.&quot; For what it is, &quot;Hitcher in the Dark&quot; is a lot cooler than any teen horror movie of today. And it&#39;s funny as hell!!! <br/><br/>5 out of 10, kids.

Italian director Umberto Lenzi will hopefully always be remembered for gruesome and bloodthirsty splatter films like `Cannibal Ferox&#39; and `Nightmare City&#39; much more than this worthless movie. Hitcher in the Dark is lame and redundant attempt to explore the mind of a disturbed psycho-killer. The 22-year-old Mark Glazer picks up young hitchhiking girls in his camper. Too bad for these girls, Mark suffers from a really bad case of the Oedipus-syndrome and goes over to torturing the girls if they don&#39;t want to take mum&#39;s place. The plot of `Hitcher in the Dark&#39; (wrong name, by the way, the entire movie is shot in broad daylight!) isn&#39;t exactly original and elaborates on the success of `The Hitcher&#39;, with a slight Norman Bates twist. There&#39;s no tension, the characters are absolutely non-believable and there even isn&#39;t enough horror to keep you alert. Hitcher does contain a few bloody make-up sequences, but nowhere near as shocking as some of Lenzi&#39;s previous films. I don&#39;t know if Josie Bisett likes to be remembered about her starring in this film, but it did mean her debut in the world of cinema. Bisett plays the main muse of the young weirdo. Although I don&#39;t like the film at all, I prefer it over watching all the `Melrose Place&#39; episodes, so it can&#39;t be that horrible. And at least Bisett shows a little naked flesh here

Deranged mama&#39;s boy Joe Balogh prowls the Virginia Beach area in his Winnebago,picking up women whom he thinks might take the place of his dead mother,then killing them when they come up short.He kidnaps a slim blonde(Josie Bissette),because of her resemblance to his dead mother.&quot;Hitcher in the Dark&quot; is a cheesy and predictable Umberto Lenzi&#39;s thriller that manages to be slightly entertaining.There are some total lapses in logic and there is absolutely no suspense.The climax is incredibly awful and the script is weak.The movie is poorly done in typical Lenzi fashion with lots of false suspense and a total lack of believability in both the performances.However if you are a rabid fan of Italian horror films you can give it a look.4 out of 10.
