Hitch Hike (1978)
104 min.
Directed by Pasquale Festa Campanile.
With Franco Nero, Corinne Clery, David Hess, Joshua Sinclair, Carlo Puri.
An unhappily married couple travelling on vacation pick up an initially unassuming hitchhiker (David Hess of both Last House on the Left and The House by the Edge of the Park).

Turns out their new road guest is also a recently-escaped psychopathic murderer!

Good Italian exploitation flick with scenic locales, nice doses of action and suspense.

Well done performances by all three leads. Only the ending disappoints in its slightly forced cynicism.

Also known as Death Drive.

Italian title: Autostop rosso sangue.
