The Hitcher 2: There have been so many direct to video sequels of once popular horror franchises. The Hitcher was a creepy little movie that needs no part 2. I understand the desire for more Friday the 13th films, and similar slasher films, but The Hitcher is actually a great film that can only be tarnished by the release of The Hitcher II: I've Been Waiting For You. Apparently C. Thomas Howell is back, though. I just hope they leave the vagueness of the first one unanswered. Enough of my rant. The specs are just about nil, with only a trailer available as a supplement on the disc. At least it should look and sound nice, the film is being presented in 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen and Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound. Retail price is $26.95.
