The Hitcher (2007) While driving through the New Mexico Desert during a rainy night, the college students Jim Halsey and his girlfriend Grace Andrews give a ride to the hitchhiker John Ryder. While in their car, the stranger proves to be a psychopath threatening the young couple with a knife, but Jim succeeds to throw him out of the car on the road. On the next morning, the young couple sees John in another car with a family, and while trying to advise the driver that the man is dangerous, they have an accident. While walking on the road, they find the whole family stabbed in the car, and John sees that the driver is still alive. He drives to a restaurant seeking for help, but the police blame Jim and Grace to the murder and send them to the police station. However, John kills the policemen and pursues the couple, playing a tragic and violent mouse and cat game with Grace and Jim.

Movie Quote(s):
  • [from trailer] John Ryder: Strangers think I'm trustworthy Jim Halsey: Aren't you? John Ryder: ...no...
  • John Ryder: [points to Grace] She's a good looking girl... how long have you been fucking her? Jim Halsey: What? John Ryder: It's a simple question. Jim Halsey: [Jim see's John's wedding ring] How long have you been fucking your wife? John Ryder: I'm not married. Jim Halsey: Then what's with the ring? John Ryder: Makes strangers think I'm trustworthy. Jim Halsey: Are you? John Ryder: No... [John destroys Jim's cell phone]
  • Grace Andrews: Please! Stop! John Ryder: I can't...
  • Buford's Store Clerk: [points John out to Jim] Hey, think this was the guy having the car trouble? John Ryder: [to Jim] That was you? Jim Halsey: Yeah man... sorry about that John Ryder: Don't worry about it... I wouldn't pick me up either
  • Jim Halsey: Grace? Grace? Morning.
Movie Trivia:
  • Director Cameo: [Dave Meyers] Photo on the driver's license of the real John Ryder.
  • The movie that Grace is watching in the hotel near the end is The Birds (1963).
  • The car Jim drives is an Oldsmobile 442.
  • Rutger Hauer who played the character of John Ryder in the original was offered a cameo, but declined for artistic reasons. Hauer has since said in the press that he has yet to watch the remake, and according to some of his friends he shouldn't bother.
  • Sean Bean spent little time with his young co-stars so as to distance their relationship and make himself seem more unknown and menacing. He believed this would drive the chemistry in a more realistic fashion.
