Hobo With a Shotgun 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.
Hobo With a Shotgun will play SXSW on Tuesday, March 15 and Wednesday, March 16, will be available on VOD, iTunes, XBOX Marketplace, Playstation Network and Amazon.com April 1, and in select theaters May 6.
This looks like fun. But I was sold when I saw Rutger Hauer with a scattergun on the poster. Everything else after that is just gravy. I’ll be checking this out next week for GUY.
