Mosaic: “The Hitcher” (1986)

This trailer’s…not so hot. Maybe it’s the voice-over narration. Too many spoiler moments, that’s for sure.

I bought a Region-Free Blu-ray player just to have this (and The Devils) on Special Edition DVD. I was fortunate enough to see this during its brief theatrical run in early 1986, in a 400-plus seat theater, on an enormous screen. It was one of the first 2.35:1 motion pictures I’d seen up to that point which made me appreciate the wide-open framing allowed by the format.the-hitcher
