Hitch-Hike (1977)

Couple (Franco Nero and Corinne Cléry) that has totally dysfunctional relationship is returning home from their camping trip. They stop to pick up a hitch-hiker (David Hess). They soon learn that the hitch-hiker is wanted criminal and he wants them to take him to Mexico. Travel through hell is about begin!

I really liked this movie, the leading trio (Nero,Cléry and Hess) do a tremendous jobs as odd traveling company. Nero broke his arm during the filming of Keoma just prior the filming of Hitch-Hike was about to start. So they had to change the script to explain why Nero has a cast on his arm and Cléry had to drive the car instead of Nero.

Sometimes this movie is labeled as giallo but this is actually a really good thriller. The twist in the end was also a good one.

Directed by Pasquale Festa Campanile
