‘Hobo With a Shotgun’ Trailer (Unrated)

Hobo With a Shotgun Hobo With a Shotgun Trailer (Unrated)

Machete slices its way into theaters today (read Screen Rant‘s review of the film HERE) – meanwhile, the unrated trailer for another Grindhouse-inspired flick, Hobo With a Shotgun, has made its way online.

Hobo With a Shotgun originated as a Canadian fan-made pseudo-trailer that was featured alongside the other fake trailers in the 2007 Robert Rodriguez/Quentin Tarantino Grindhouse double-feature.  The Hobo trailer was not included with U.S. prints of Grindhouse – which itself was considered a financial failure upon its initial release in theaters.

Jason Eisener was responsible for both creating the original Hobo With a Shotgun trailer and co-writing/directing the film adaptation.  The movie revolves around a homeless man (played by Rutger Hauer) who decides to become a vigilante and “clean up” his crime-ridden neighborhood via the use of (what else?) a shotgun.

Two teaser videos for Hobo With a Shotgun were released a couple months back and hinted at the extremely profane and sleazy nature of the film.  The new trailer for the exploitation feature delivers on that promise and features tons of graphic violence and gore – needless to say, it is NSFW.

Check out the NSFW Hobo With a Shotgun trailer below:

Hobo With a Shotgun looks to mimic the stylistic design of old-school exploitation flicks, with its synthesizer score, lewd content, and low-budget look all very much in the vein of actual B-movies from the 1970s and ’80s.  The footage in this preview also contains the kind of brutal violence and gore gags that would have landed the film an X-Rating a few decades ago, but today – in the age of Piranha 3D – should still qualify for the more audience-friendly R-Rating.

Will the success or failure of Machete, Hobo With a Shotgun, and the in-development Thanksgiving movie encourage (or discourage) filmmakers from creating exploitation flicks?  Given the low cost nature of B-movie fare, it seems highly unlikely to disappear in the near future.

Hobo With a Shotgun is tentatively scheduled for release in Spring of 2011.

  1. are kidding me this looks like one of those fake trailers from grindhouse….CANT WAIT

    • That’s because it is!! =) I however didn’t see Grindhouse (Dath Proof/Planet Terror) in theater but this was one of those trailers in between the films only with out Hauer. They had some other guy filling in cause I guess they didn’t think they’d actually make the film. But I am so happy they did.

  2. This…is…AWESOME! I’m so glad the trailer is out.

  3. this one is another must see

  4. I already know I’m going to LOVE THIS MOVIE. Big Hauer fan

  5. Holee. Crap.



    • wowo damn Vic i take it this was your first time seeing this trailer before it was put up here?

      • anthony,

        Yup, first time seeing it. :-)


        • very cool :)

  6. I think I’d rather see the exploitation films like this one come back rather then the frickin’ 3D that has been forced down our collective throats. Too bad it’s not playing with Machete. I’d so be there opening night if that where the case!

    • ohh that’d be just too sweet

  7. awsome

  8. looks gooder than a sum.

  9. It looks soooo good. I can’t wait.

  10. What. The. F*#@?! I don’t even know what to think about this trailer. But I do love Rutger Hauer.

  11. Awesome!! Keep ‘em coming! Love exploitation films!

  12. It’s so annoying that all the videos online these days are becoming so high quality/high def. My computer can’t handle them. A lot of the gore was hard to see due to skipping but this looks awesome! Definitely seeing this.
    Love the tone shift halfway through the trailer haha.

  13. Sweet.

  14. Damn. I cant see this trailer right now,my ipod wont load vids *sigh* ill see it later.

  15. Nice! What’s cool is that it seems it will retain the grainy badly edited look throughout the whole film,like Planet Terror. Why didn’t Machete look like this? Part of the reason I didn’t like it.

  16. I loved the first one and I like this one trailer. I enjoy Oscar-winning movies but there is nothing like a expolitation movie-it give you what you want!!

  17. This looks bloody amazing!!
