This sociopath has already murdered other good Samaritans in his efforts to evade authorities. He sadistically taunts and threatens the two men and perversely delights in telling them that he has them both marked for death sometime before the end of the trip. His destination is a ferryboat in Baja, California, which he hopes will help him get to the mainland. The hostages hope to stay alive long enough to escape or be rescued by Mexican authorities.
Plot: Roy and Gilbert’s fishing trip takes a terrifying turn when the hitchhiker they pick up turns out to be a sociopath on the run from the law. He’s killed before, and he lets the two know that as soon as they’re no longer useful, he’ll kill again. The two friends plot an escape, but the hitchhiker’s peculiar physical affliction, an eye that never closes even when he sleeps, makes it impossible for them to tell when they can make a break for it.

Two fishermen pick up a psychotic escaped convict (William Talman) who tells them that he intends to murder them when the ride is over.
First and foremost, I should warn the viewer to avoid the version available from Alpha Video. Alpha has released many (public domain) classic films over the years in varying degrees of quality. I would say this is not one of their better ones, and to really get the right feel, you should pick up the copy from Kino.
Beyond the tense plot and and skillful acting, what really distinguishes this film is the director, Ida Lupino. Lupino was a fairly well-known actress in her day, but her move to director is noteworthy. Even today we have few female directors, but in the 1950s it was almost completely unheard of.
