***1/2. A very good surprise. The movie is supposed to take place in New Mexico but was entirely shot in Italy. Nevertheless, I challenge you to find something in 'Hitch Hike' that is not American. The mood is shady à la Fredric Brown if you see what I mean and the ending a little jewel. Corinne Clery is naked half the movie through and Franco Nero proves here he can be a good actor if he tries. Recommended.
