Synopsis

Do you remember fake trailers inserted into Quentin Tarantino"s Death Proof? Some of the trailers have transformed into a feature-leangth movie and one of them is - you got it - A Hobo with a Shotgun. The story begins when a train pulls into the station. A Hobo jumps from a freight car, hoping for a fresh start in a new city. But he finds himself trapped in trapped in an urban hell. This is a world where criminals rule the streets. Amidst the chaos, the Hobo comes across a pawn shop window displaying a second hand lawn mower. He dreams of making the city a beautiful place and starting a new life for himself. But as the brutality continues to rage around him, he realizes the only way to make a different in this town is with that gun - a shotgun hanging above the lawn mower - in his hand and two shells in its chamber. A well-made Grindhouse spinoff starring Rutger Hauer as the Hobo.

Director : Jason EISENER

Treevenge was the follow up short film from Jason and Yer Dead Productions Inc, produced in 2008. Treevenge details the expriences and horrifying reality of the lives of Christmas trees. The film won a slew of awards from the festival circuit in 2009 including an Honorable Mention (for Shorts) at the Sundance Film Festival, Audience Award for Best Short from Toronto After Dark, Fantasia, San Francisco Independent Film Festival among many others. It was on the heels of the success of Treevenge and the Hobo trailer that Jason had the idea to turn the Hobo concept into a feature film. The result is an exploitation style vigilante epic starring Rutger Hauer. Shot is Halifax in the spring of 2010, the feature version of Hobo With A Shotgun is already experiencing tremendous buzz, fueled by a fervent online fan base. Hobo with a Shotgun had its world premiere at Sundance in January 2011.
