1986 Classic The Hitcher to Finally Get 4K Release This Year

January 5, 2022

The 1986 classic The Hitcher celebrated its 35th anniversary last year, and fans are finally getting a brand new 4k and Blu-ray release to celebrate. Second Sight Films, who has recently brought other classic movies into the 21st century, such as George A. Romero’s Dawn of the Dead, announced last year that The Hitcher would be joining their list of upcoming Blu-ray releases. The film’s writer Eric Red also teased the upcoming upgrade, but at the time, it was revealed that due to circumstances – which essentially came down to the inability to obtain the original negative of the movie – a 4K restoration would not be possible. It looks like that has changed, and fans will get the full upgrade the film deserves.
