But things take a turn when they pick up a straded motorist, named Adam, whom takes them hostage revealing himself to be a fugitive running from both the police and his two acomplices after robbing a bank and making off with all the loot. But things are not always as they seem as Walter and Eve try to find a way to not only get rid of their unwanted car guest, but find a way to deal with each other when both see the tempting offer of the stolen $2 million in cash Adam always has on him.

Review: Excellent movie. Very rare case, when for 105 minutes, I never became boring. Here, everything’s great: the story and acting. David Hess (Smash Cut) at all the talent to play villains, but Franco Nero (The Girl) he is in no way inferior.

The couple had some difficulties in family life, vacationing traveling in a car with a trailer. Italian journalist (part-snapper and occasional drinker) and his wife picked up on the road companion – a psychopathic gangster, recently made ​​a big robbery, hiding from the police and his accomplices. Pretty quickly thug shows his true colors, and a couple is taken hostage. Further developments worthy of close attention from moviegoers, and in my opinion, will bring them a lot of pleasant moments. Hess and Nero compete on equal terms for the title of a negative character, although they are on different sides of the barricades. Especially liked the fact that after the end of the storyline, shows – what happened next

Autostop rosso sangue is a moody thriller, with a collection of unpleasant characters one would rather expect in a piece by Ruggero Deodato. If this film contains any humour (which is debatable) then certainly only of the dark and cynical kind. There are clear-cut villains (no surprises: David Hess) in this film, but the complete absence of really likeable characters makes this uncomfortable viewing. This film is certainly not for everyone and many people will find it shocking.

Still, Autostop… is excellently put together, it is very effective in what it is trying to do. Campanile may be out of his genre here but he certainly was not out of his depth – this is one of his best films.
