Okay, i'm usually more open minded about remakes because some of the time, for me anyway, I feel that perhaps something different could be done with the same story, but this is where I draw my personal line in the desert sand. IMO the original The Hitcher is pure unadulterated perfection! The tension, drama, terror, action, writing, directing and acting are all perfect and this cannot be improved upon in any way that I can comprehend except to make it bloodier and the editing headache-inducing. I also am willing to give up any 2 of my fingers if they can possibly find someone as threatening and unhinged as Rutger Hauer was, go ahead, I dare them to try lol. I'll wait for dvd for this one.
