A train pulls into the station – it’s the end of the line. A Hobo jumps from a freight car, hoping for a fresh start in a new city. Instead, he finds himself trapped in an urban hell. This is a world where criminals rule the streets and Drake, the city’s crime boss, reigns supreme alongside his sadistic murderous sons, Slick & Ivan. 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 notices a shotgun hanging above the lawn mower... Quickly, he realizes the only way to make a difference in this town is with that gun in his hand and two shells in its chamber.

“The gore is plentiful and the nudity gratuitous, just as it should be… if HOBO's not playing to large crowds at midnight screenings within the next five years, a la ROCKY HORROR, there's something seriously wrong with today's youth… BAD TASTE led to THE LORD OF THE
RINGS. Who knows where HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN could lead?” -Nordling, AIN’T IT COOL NEWS

“Double-barreled mayhem as if Sergio Leone designed a video-game… A grindhouse hoot.” - Duane Byrge, THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

“Hobo with a Shotgun is everything you'd want a film called 'Hobo with a Shotgun' to be… The blend of homage and parody -- of laughing at
and laughing with -- is nearly perfect.” - Eric D. Snider, CINEMATICAL

“Hobo with a Shotgun is a Hiroshima of creative insanity. Director Jason Eisener has not only paid homage to 70s exploitation films, he’s made a film that could easily have stood amongst it ranks.” - Matt Goldman, COLLIDER

“Even crazier than you imaged… Hobo With A Shotgun is so incredibly over the top with its excess, fans of this genre are going to be bowing to it… If you love movies with gore and witty bon mots, you’re in for a real treat.” - Germain Lussier, SLASHFILM

“A giant dose of “Holy shit! They just went there!’…Awesomely psycho, and… an absolute blast.” - Venkman, GEEK TYRANT

“The blend of homage and parody -- of laughing at and laughing with -- is nearly perfect… HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN doesn’t attempt to ape
a style, pay tribute to or parody one either – it is its inspirations. Look out boys and girls, reopen those drive-ins, a legitimate new grindhouse film has arrived.” - Brian Kelley, GORDON AND THE WHALE

Date for DVD release subject to change.
