The Hitchhiker Knows What You Did Last Summer
Dark Country stars Thomas Jane, who is also handling directing duties, his first time behind the camera since 2000’s Jonni Nitro. It also stars Lauren German, who is a tall drink of red wine, and Ron Perlman, who is more like a stout. It’s about a couple who decide to take a road trip to Vegas for their honeymoon, but things go awry when they run over a man standing in the middle of the road. They pick him up, put him in the car, and unsurprisingly, he awakens.
It’s a fairly generic premise, but for some reason, I like the cut of Dark Country’s jib. It helps that, for no real reason, I kind of dig Thomas Jane, but the Frank Miller-esque horror/noir stylism is certainly compelling. The trailer’s voice-over narrator, however, is not.
