Movie Reviews

"The Devil Thumbs a Ride"
kurlebj | Hackettstown, New Jersey United States | 12/29/2003
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Ah, the wonderful warped world of David Hess. How I love it. Ever since the first time I saw "Last House On The Left" - I've been infatuated with this man's ability to be a monster. He's tremendous at it, and that's what compelled me to buy this movie sight unseen. What do I think? Well,..."Last House On The Left" and "House On The Edge Of The Park" are a couple of my favorite movies of all time. This coupled with the knowledge I've read on the internet claiming the character Hess plays in this movie is very similar to the aforementioned 2, I had to check it out. David Hess is outstanding in the movie as his usual typecast character. But the movie, umm well, it's ok. The film is about a husband and wife that pick up a hitch-hiker (David Hess) and trouble obviously ensues. The plot is a little weak, (ok, very weak) - and the audio is a little out of sync. But the movie moves along at a surprisingly quick pace, being that there isn't THAT much killing and/or violence. There are some quality dialogue from Hess and Franco and some quality shots of the wife (I forget her name) nude. Small amounts of violence scattered throughout. (Though not nearly as much as I was hoping for) In comparing this movie to Last House and House On the Edge, I would have to say it is a failure. However, looking as a stand alone movie without comparing it to the aforementioned films, I would say it is an enjoyable way to spend an hour and a half, even if it's just for Hess's faces and dialogue and the wife's body. The dvd looked good for the year the film was made and the budget I'm sure it was made on. Pretty clear, not too much grain or dirt. The audio is acceptable and there are a couple extras on the disc, a trailer and a few interviews with the cast.Story: C-

"Talk about movies for guys who like movies, this is one joy ride for sure!!! David Hess deserves the Best Actor Oscar for this completely ridiculous performance that makes you laugh one second, then become slack-jawed the next. For the fellas, we get bush, nice boobs and some good action.....for the chicks, you might want to rent another flick...haha.....ENJOY!!!"
David Hess is back!!

"An excellent film, sadly never released in North America until recently. David Hess (Krug from LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT) plays a hitch-hiker who just robbed a bank and double-crossed his partners to keep the money for himself. Along the way, he meets up with a "problematic" couple and hitches a ride. From there, we're treated to fist fights, double crossing, cops being killed, more double crossing, rape, and yes even more double crossing. This one truly is a 5 out of 5. To start off, the cinematography is amazing. And even though this only played overseas (25 years ago!), the image on the DVD is stunning. Every single shot is crisp and picture perfect. We can all hope that the upcoming LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT is this good. You also get the european trailer, and a 17 minute documentary with the director and the 3 stars (including HESS). This one is a must have, especially for all you LAST HOUSE fans! What are you waiting for? Skip HARRY POTTER, and order HITCH-HIKE now!!"

"Not a well known movie but a thrilling and entertaining storyline
with three excellent under-rated actors. Saw it as a teenager 20 years ago and it still kept me intertested today."
