My Thoughts

Jason Eisener made good on his fake Grindhouse trailer with Hobo With A Shotgun! This film is everything that Machete should have been but wasn't.

I attended a midnight screening of this at the Music Box Theatre in Chicago with my friends @Sleestakk, @Kreepylady, @PatSandberg, all of whom helped bring Hobo to the Music Box by signing an online petition. Thanks guys!

Even though it's been available on VOD for a while now, I'm very happy I waited to see this on the big screen with friends, because it's the best way to experience this over-the-top masterpiece.

HWAS is an ode to early '80s trash cinema in all the very best ways; insanely violent, non-sensical at times, and full of quotable 'WTF' lines. I kept finding myself thinking "they're not gonna go there. No way. OH SHIT, they are!"

The violence is so gory and crazed that I kept finding myself laughing out loud while clenching my stomach muscles and pushing back into my seat at the same time.

Rutger Hauer steals the show here as the titular Hobo, but Molly Dunsworth does a great turn as Abby, a prostitute that Hauer's character befriends. Except for this movie, she's done strictly TV movie stuff. I hope we see more of her, and of Hauer.

As @sleestakk said after the movie, "easily in my top ten for the year." I echo that. I can't wait to buy the Blu-Ray of this and see it again!
