Hobo with a Shotgun
Jason Eisener, 2011
Canada / US | 86 minutes

Sneak Preview! Straight from Sundance! Director in person!
A quiet hobo (the kick-ass Rutger Hauer) who dreams of starting a lawn-mowing business finds himself in a toilet of a city, infested with slimy critters and ruled by a sicko gang lord and his two obnoxious sons, who get off—sometimes literally—on inflicting, and receiving, pain. Before long, Mr. Hobo steps in, “delivering justice one shell at a time”!

The winner of the Rodriguez/Tarantino Grindhouse fake-trailer contest, Hobo with a Shotgun has now been expanded to a hilariously warped feature-length smut homage, presented in glorious Technicolor. In addition to this super-awesome tagline, the film itself also delivers shocks and gore galore, ridiculously quotable dialogue, and all-around demented fun.
