Synopsis

While on a cross-country drive, a bitter writer (international superstar franco Nero of Django) and his beautiful wife (Corinne Clery, the Story of O and Moonraker) pick up a stranded motorist (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. Rarely seen in the U.S. (causing it to be named “one of the greatest exploitation films no one has ever seen” IGN) Hitch-Hike is a sleaze epic fueled by wild performances, scenes of shocking violence, and a visceral score by legendary composer Ennio Morricone. This RaroVideo release is completely uncut and uncensored, and presents co-writer/ director Pasquale festa Campanile’s vision in all its shocking glory.

Reviews

Pasquale Festa Campanile’s Hitch-Hike is a dirty, dirty film. The 1977 exploitation movie features dirty characters in dirty scenarios, and ends with a dirty twist that will leave a foul taste in your mouth—it’s the sort of movie that fans of ‘70s Euro sleaze just shouldn’t miss.
— Under the Radar
Hitch-Hike is very tense. The entire movie keeps you on the edge-of-your-seat. At any moment you think an explosion of brutality will explode across the screen and that’s what gets you. The music for Hitch-Hike comes courtesy of the legendary Ennio Morricone and it’s absolutely wonderful.
— Bloody disgusting
