THE HITCHER
1986, 97 min, Dir: Robert Harmon

A pulse-pounding thriller completely misunderstood by critics at the time, THE HITCHER stars an ultra-frightening Rutger Hauer as the iconic killer John Ryder .While on a road trip across the Midwest, young Jim Halsey (played by C. Thomas Howell) makes the deadly mistake of picking up the deranged hitchhiker, who takes great pleasure in setting up a high stakes game of cat-and-mouse. With a trail of bodies in their wake, the two become increasingly inseparable, much to Jim’s horror. Featuring Jennifer Jason Leigh and Jeffrey DeMunn.

NIGHTHAWKS
1981, Universal, 99 min, Dir: Bruce Malmuth

In this inventive action-thriller, Sylvester Stallone and Billy Dee Williams star as New York City cops tasked with bringing down an international terrorist played by the inimitable Rutger Hauer. “Nighthawks is an exciting cops and killers yarn with Sylvester Stallone to root for and cold-blooded Rutger Hauer to hate.” – Variety, 1980.

HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN
2011, Magnet Releasing, 86 min, Dir: Jason Eisener

A train pulls into the station – it’s the end of the line. A hobo (Rutger Hauer) jumps from a freight car hoping for a fresh start in a new city. Instead, he finds himself trapped in an urban hell. Amidst the chaos, the hobo comes across a pawn shop window displaying a secondhand lawn mower. He dreams of making the city a beautiful place and starting a new life for himself. But as the brutality continues to rage around him, he notices a shotgun hanging above the lawn mower. Quickly, he realizes the only way to make a difference in this town is with that gun in his hand and two shells in its chamber...
