Hobo with a Shotgun

(2011)

A train pulls into its final station and a Hobo hops from a freight car. He has dreams of a fresh life in a new city, but finds himself trapped in an urban hell instead. A city where criminals rule the streets, landlords evict single mothers in the middle of the night, and where the city's crime boss, The Drake, reigns supreme with his sadistic, homeless-killing sons, Slick & Ivan. Through the chaos, the Hobo comes across a shop window displaying a second hand lawn mower and a shotgun, and decides it's time to cut the grass, make the city beautiful and start a new way of life. But after witnessing the brutality that encompasses this city, he realizes the only way to make a difference in this place is with a gun in his hand and two shells in its chamber.

EXCLUSIVE: Jason Eisener Talks ‘Hobo with a Shotgun’

Hobo with a Shotgun, which spun-off from a trailer created for the theatrical release Grindhouse, is a gleefully gory shot of pure schlock, and one of the best times you will have at the movies this year. It's a shocking, funny, and downright dirty ode to The Toxic Avenger and Street Trash with a little bit of Robocop thrown in for good measure.

80s action icon Rutger Hauer stars as the title character, a train hopping yeg who stumbles into a corrupt town full of sodomizers, baby killers, and drug pushers. Disgusted with the nihilistic anarchy that surrounds his ever-waking moment, this Hobo with a Shotgun decides to take maters into his own hands and clean up the streets one shell casing at a time.
