Videocast: Front Row Center Episode 4: ‘Hobo With A Shotgun’
You may remember the faux-trailer for “Hobo With A Shotgun”, directed by Jason Eisener, which won the Grindhouse Trailer Contest put on by the SXSW Film Festival & Robert Rodriguez. It all began with an announcement on Ain’t It Cool News, about a contest that gave a three week deadline to come up with a “grindhouse” style trailer for a fake movie and would later appear in between Rodriguez’s Planet Terror and Tarantino’s Death Proof.
Ever since the filmmakers (Jason Eisener, Robert Cotterill and John Davies) won the Trailer Competition in Austin, they have become a favourite among fans of the gore-action-comedy genre, garnering more than 500,000 internet hits. After much anticipation, the talented trio have finally completed the feature-length treatment of “Hobo With A Shotgun” and we have our review from the recent Canadian premiere hosted by the Fantasia Film Festival.
