While on a cross-country drive, a bitter writer (International superstar Franco Nero of DJANGO) and his beautiful wife (the stunning Corinne Clery of THE STORY OF O and MOONRAKER) pick up a stranded motorist (the one and only David Hess of LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT infamy). But when this hitcher turns out to be a depraved psychopath, their road trip takes a vicious detour into sex and savagery where the miles are marked in mayhem and vengeance is the ultimate rule of thumb.
Barely released theatrically in America, HITCH-HIKE has been called "one of the greatest exploitation films no one has ever seen." Co-writer/director Pasquale Festa Campanile (director of WHEN WOMEN HAD TAILS and an Oscar© nominee for writing THE FOUR DAYS OF NAPLES) packs this outstanding sleaze epic with wild performances, extreme violence and some very nasty surprises, all set to a remarkable score by Ennio Morricone (BIRD WITH THE CRYSTAL PLUMAGE) and presented totally uncut and uncensored.
