Plot – Spoilers:
In a world straight out of a game, a hobo tries to stay low and keep out of trouble. All he wants is a lawnmower, so he can earn a living rather than wait on stray coins from passerbys. But instead of the lawnmower, a shotgun is forced on him and he goes where no shotgun has gone before.
The Hobo looks like Anthony Hopkins and sneers like Clint Eastwood, while reminding us that The Hitcher is not on this website yet.
Hobo with a Shotgun is downright ridiculous at times, but the gore is clean and it has plenty of nods to other films and incidents, most notably during the schoolbus burning scene where the song Disco Inferno plays – a reference to the murder of Suzanne Capper where the killers sang the line “Burn baby burn” while setting the victim on fire.
