Hitch Hike
After becoming a minor cult figure with his role as Krug Stullo in the notorious Last House on the Left, actor David Hess found himself typecast in minor variations of the role for the rest of his career. In this bloody thriller from director Pasquale Festa Campanile, Hess stars as Adam Kunitz, ringleader of a group of vicious bankrobbers who terrorize bickering vacationers Franco Nero and Corinne Clery. There's action, violence, and hard-edged sexual tension aplenty, although Hess' famous fireside rape of Clery is optically censored in some versions. The film, based on Peter Kane's novel The Violence and the Fury, and well scored by Ennio Morricone, still comes across as an attempt to capitalize on Hess' cult status, prefiguring his even more violent Italian films such as La Casa Sperduta nel Parco and Camping del Terrore. Ignazio Spalla and Monica Zanchi also appear. ~ Robert Firsching, Rovi
