HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN (R18+)

Canada / USA, 2011 (MIFF 2011, Night Shift)

Director: Jason Eisener

HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN (R18+)

"You and me are goin' on a car-ride to hell... and you're riding shotgun!"

At the end of the line in a crime-ridden city, a hobo is looking for a fresh start. What he finds is an urban hell run by a murderous crime lord and his psychopathic sons. There's only one way to clean up the city: with a gun in his hand and two shells in the chamber.

Expanded from a trailer made for Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez's Grindhouse, Hobo with a Shotgun brings schlock cinema to its natural zenith: Rutger Hauer armed with a pump-action shotgun, blowing away crooked cops and paedophile Santas.
