Forbidden TO LIVE WITH DECENT SOCIETY!
February 7, 2012
"Hitchhike to Hell" (a.k.a. "Going My Way Mister" and "Highway Girls") is clearly a grade-z exploitation film–the sort of incredibly low budget film that pulled in audiences hoping to see a film with lots of hot action. But, as it pretends to be educational, it managed to be seen despite various censor boards. In this case, the film is trying to warn us of the dangers of prostitution along the highways of America. I doubt if there was a rampant problem of this sort but it made for a great topic for exploitation films. But there's a problem–the film isn't the least bit explicit and it's dull from start to finish.
The film is narrated by a guy who owns a bar–and his own son is a pimp and tries to steal his dad's liquor license so he can turn the place into a brothel. But, words like prostitution, brothel and the like are never used–and it's all tame. It also is chock full of bad acting, random edits and is incredibly preachy. It's not all that interesting unless you like watching and laughing at exploitation films. Sadly, this one isn't even all that funny on a camp level–it's just dumb.
In this vintage "adults-only" exploitationer, whiskey and fast cars lead an innocent young girl into a life of prostitution and murder.
