1977 • United States • Directed by Irvin Berwick
Be careful who you hitch a ride with! All roads lead to terror in 'Hitchhike to Hell', the delightfully sleazy cautionary tale from cult director Irvin Berwick ('Malibu High', 'The Monster of Piedras Blancas'). Howard is a mild-mannered momma's boy whose job running deliveries for a cleaning agency affords him a lot of time out on the road. It's not until he picks up young women who've run away from home that he transforms into a twitching, homicidal maniac, hellbent on meting out punishment for their "transgressions". Can the cops put a stop to Howard's demented spree before he claims yet another victim? Influenced by the depraved crimes of the likes of "Co-ed Killer" Edmund Kemper, 'Hitchhike to Hell' is a bona fide American nightmare from the vaults of legendary exploitation producer Harry Novak ('The Child', 'Toys Are Not for Children').
