‘Grindhouse’ Born ‘Hobo With A Shotgun’ Gets A Messy NSFW Trailer

You all remember Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez’s little co-venture, the old school exploitation-style double-feature, Grindhouse, correct? Some loved it, some hated it, and we all moved on. The thing about it that has since evolved, however, are the faux trailers created by famous filmmakers to surround the production and help give it that authentic b-movie bonanza vibe.

What you may NOT know, is that some other trailers were made for Grindhouse as well, and one of them was called Hobo With A Shotgun. The trailer was created by Jason Eisener and won a contest at the South by Southwest film festival for best trailer, and while it wasn’t included in every print of Grindhouse, it did run in theaters up in Canada (where the director is from).

Put down what you’re doing, grab some soap for after, and click on over to check out this dirty little treat and the original fake trailer immediately. Be WARNED: these are very NSFW trailers and contains a whole lot of graphic content that would surely send your nearest soccer mom into a vicious frenzy.

A couple of the fake trailers such as Rodriguez’s Machete and Eli Roth’s Thanksgiving were so popular that they’ve moved on to feature-length expansion, with Machete set to release this very day and Thanksgiving aiming at some time in 2011. But because Hobo With A Shotgun is independently made and produced on a micro-budget, you can’t help but be curious. And hey, they even got the one and only Rutger Hauer to star as the hobo!

The movie — also directed by Eisener — is basically a grindhouse version of RoboCop, set in a world where crime and anarchy reign. Only instead of an unstoppable cyborg cop, it’s an old homeless man (and his shotgun, naturally) who has seen enough and decides to do something about it himself.

Now, a lot of you may run away just based on the trailer because this is obviously a love it/loathe it flick, but if you’re like me, some of you won’t be able to help but think that getting really intoxicated and checking this out looks like a damn good time.

First up you can check out the original contest-winning trailer without Rutger Hauer (though the man playing the hobo here will play a cop in the feature), and then the newly released NSFW trailer.

  1. I’m surprised at Rutger Hauer. I haven’t seen him since he played that blind swordsman.
