I saw this movie on Showtime late night when I was a kid, around the early ‘80s. Family in a car driving down a road in the rain; They stop and pick up a hitchhiker wearing one of those hooded yellow rain slickers, can’t see his face or anything. Hitchhiker gets in, the family says something like, “Where you headed, etc?” Hitchhiker says nothing, and the family starts looking at each other nervously. Suddenly the hitchhiker grabs the father’s face, and his hand is some weird looking claw. The car goes off the road. The mother wakes up in the hospital and they tell her that she and the hitchhiker were the only survivors. She says, “His hand…his left hand..??” and the nurse says, “The left hand was severed in the crash”.
That’s as far as I got. Any idea what this is? Nobody seems to ever have heard of it.
UNK SEZ: This sounds like a good one but I don’t recall it. You know the drill kids, send us an email or leave a comment if you know what this is!!!
UPDATE: Jeff Allard of the incredibly great blog DINNER WITH MAX JENKE knew right away that this trauma was made possible by the anthology series HAMMER HOUSE OF HORROR. He even gave us the episode’s title, “The Two Faces Of Evil”!Thanks also go to Reader PhantomWolf who pointed us toward the clip below….
