A brand new and delightful gory red band trailer for Jason Eisener‘s ‘Hobo With a Shotgun’ has been unleashed! Check it out below and be sure to weigh in with your thoughts!
If you haven’t already heard, Hobo With A Shotgun, was a short film directed by Jason Eisener & produced by Rob Cotterill, won the Grindhouse Trailer Contest put on by the SXSW Film Festival & Robert Rodriguez. It all began with an announcement on Ain’t It Cool News, about a contest that gave a three week deadline to come up with a “grindhouse” style trailer for a fake movie. On the day of the announcement Eisener called Cotterill and they agreed to begin shooting that evening.
Synopsis: 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.
