Hobo With A Shotgun

de Jason Eisener


A hobo arrives in Scum Town ready to start a new life. But he soon realizes that the city lives up to its name and the scum have free rein in the streets, controlled by a tyrant and his sadistic children. Given this scenario, the hobo arms himself with a rifle and starts to dish out justice among the criminals, pimp and pedophiles who are in his range of fire. Hobo with a Shotgun managed to become a cult film even before its premiere, and with good reason. A tribute to urban vigilantes with all the blood in place and a bigger-than-life Rutger Hauer.


Jason Eisener

A genre film lover, Eisener won a faux c trailer contest organized by Robert Rodríguez in 2007 with a piece that would be the genesis of Hobo with a Shotgun. He also directed the successful short film Treevenge (08).
