Hobo with a Shotgun

Director Jason Eisener
Year 2011
Run Time 86min
Genre Action/Adventure, Comedy, Horror, Thriller
When a man with no name and no home rolls into a new city, he finds a lawless place ruled by crime lords and teeming with armed robbers, corrupt cops, abused sex workers and even a pedophile Santa. Moved to sorrow, rage and disgust at this urban chaos, the Hobo takes it on himself to clean up the city the best way he knows how — with a 20-gauge shotgun. 

This cult favourite started as a fake movie trailer in Quentin Tarantino & Robert Rodriguez’s Grindhouse. It includes several Canadiana Easter eggs and a memorable performance from Rutger Hauer, who at one point delivers a dramatic monologue to an audience of newborn babies. 

A gleeful, gory sendup of 70s exploitation films, Hobo with a Shotgun delivers plenty of shocks, mayhem and vigilante justice, “one shell at a time.”
