90 min.
Directed by Umberto Lenzi.

Well done thriller from director Umberto Lenzi.

Son of a wealthy entrepreneur, young Mark Glazer (Balogh) takes leisurely road trips in his own furnished RV, picks up women hitchhikers along the way...and murders them.

Will pretty Daniella (Bissett from TV's Melrose Place) become his next victim? If she can somehow play along with poor Mark's demented obsession with his own mother, perhaps the young woman will survive...

Good action sequences dutifully propel the action forward, but strong performances by both Balogh and Bissett really hold the enterprise together.

Also known as Hitcher 2.

Italian title: Paura nel buio.
