Summary
Grace and Jim hit the road in their 1970 Oldsmobile 442, en route to spring break. Their pleasure trip soon turns into a waking nightmare after encountering the mysterious hitchhiker John Ryder (The Hitcher). The initial encounters with Ryder are increasingly tense for Grace and Jim, and they bravely fight back when he ambushes them. But they are truly blindsided when he implicates them in a horrific slaying and continues to shadow them. The open road becomes a battleground of blood and metal. Grace and Jim try to elude not only Ryder but also the New Mexico State Police. Grace and Jim must fight for their lives and they must face their fears head-on
