-------------------------------------------------------

Momentum will release a new two-disc special edition version of The Hitcher on June 30th. The 1986 film was one of the first movies to become a huge home video seller, gathering a loyal cult following long after it had ended its theatrical release.

The new two-disc set will feature a new anamorphic transfer (in 2.35:1 ratio), with Dolby Digital 5.1 audio (contrary to what you might read elsewhere, it does not have DTS audio). The first disc contains the movie, with a full-length commentary track by director Robert Harmon and writer Eric Red. It also has scene-specific commentary by Harmon, executive producer Edward S. Feldman, Eric Red, composer Mark Isham, cinematographer John Searle and stars C. Thomas Howell and Rutger Hauer.

The second disc will feature a brand new forty-minute documentary, The Hitcher - How Do These Movies Get Made?, which includes interviews with all the key cast and crew members, with the regrettable exception of Jennifer Jason Leigh. The documentary is in 1.78:1 anamorphic format. Disc two will also contain two trailers, filmographies, script extracts (including two deleted scenes), and two short movies: Robert Harman's 1980 debut China Lake (34m) and Rutger Hauer's 2001 film The Room (11m). Both shorts are presented in non-anamorphic 2.35:1 ratio and have optional director's commentary. China Lake has a 2.0 soundtrack, The Room is in 5.1.

Here's a review of the DVD: THE HITCHER: SPECIAL EDITION

Sounds like an excellent release. I haven't seen this film in years. As I recall, it is a nerve-twister and Hauer is excellent.

I recently got Anchor Bay's superb DVD edition of Road Games and that DVD is definately worth picking up if you like The Hitcher. :emoji_thumbsup:

Hauer is absolutely riveting and unrelentless in this movie
compared to some of his other movies he has done
