You got to pick the movie for the conclusion of WOMEN IN HORROR MONTH, and the landslide winner was THE HITCHHIKER directed by IDA LUPINO.

The Hitchhiker starring EDMUND O'BRIEN, FRANK LOVEJOY, and WILLIAM TALMAN is a film noir thriller based on the real-life crimes of highway killer BILLY COOK whose 22-day reign of terror left six people dead and the American public horrified.

Also, we take a look at the incredible life and groundbreaking career of the woman behind the camera, the fabulous IDA LUPINO.
