Fond Object Backyard Double Feature: The Hitcher & Deadly Spawn! says
This week in our October horror double feature series, we bring you two more absolute classics! Frist up, the 1986 road-horror film THE HITCHER followed by the seldom seen 1983 sci-fi horror shocker DEADLY SPAWN! Here is a little bit about the flicks:

When I first saw The Hitcher as a jaded teenager alone in the basement of my cousin's house on cable, it truly terrified me and made a long-lasting impression on me. I LOVE this film! The Hitcher is a 1986 American road action-horror film directed by Robert Harmon and written by Eric Red. It stars Rutger Hauer, C. Thomas Howell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, and Jeffrey DeMunn. Howell plays Jim, a young man who gives a ride to a hitchhiker, played by Hauer. After narrowly escaping death, Jim repeatedly encounters the hitchhiker, who is revealed to be a serial killer, and the two engage in a game of cat and mouse. It was released in the United States on February 21, 1986.

I first became aware of Deadly Spawn when I was pretty young while flipping through the pages of Fantastic Films magazine (damn, I loved that rag!). It looked so scary, I had to see it right then and there! The Deadly Spawn is a 1983 science fiction horror film directed by Douglas McKeown and starring Charles George Hildebrandt. In some territories, the film's title was changed to Return of the Aliens: The Deadly Spawn or The Return of the Alien's Deadly Spawn in an attempt to cash in on the worldwide success of Ridley Scott's 1979 film Alien.

It follows the story of a crash-landed alien that finds refuge in the basement of a house and grows to monstrous proportions, eating those unlucky enough to venture down. A handful of teenagers try to survive the onslaught of the creature and its young.
