‘The Hitcher’: 1986 Horror Classic Being Restored for 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray Release This Year!

Writer Eric Red had teased last year that 1986 classic The Hitcher was finally getting a Blu-ray release, and the release was subsequently confirmed by Second Sight Films. Second Sight, the company behind the recent 4K Ultra HD release of George Romero’s Dawn of the Dead, had unfortunately also revealed, however, that a 4K release would not be possible.

But that bad news has now changed, with Second Sight confirming this week that they’ve managed to track down the original camera negative, meaning a 4K release is now happening!

The UK company announced this morning, “We’ve tracked down the [original camera] negative!! We will be doing a full restoration for a 4K and Blu-ray release later this year!”

Second Sight is a UK company, so the Blu-ray release will likely be locked to Region B. As for the 4K release, those are inherently Region Free, so no worries there. Hallelujah!

Released in 1986, The Hitcher starred the late Rutger Hauer as a murderous hitchhiker and C. Thomas Howell as the young man who makes the mistake of picking him up. The film was written by Eric Red (Near Dark, Bad Moon), and directed by Robert Harmon.

Given that Netflix really is the master of their own data, how many times a viewer streams The Ridiculous 6, or what films don't get watched all the way straight through, or how many times someone watches an episode of Bill Nye Saves the World, it was easy for them to come up with the list based on just one percentage: 70 percent.
