Fans who have been missing that authentic feel of the gritty side of eighties cinema will embrace the 2011 exploitation movie Hobo With a Shotgun. What started as the winner in a fake trailer contest in 2007 ended up as a full feature exploitation film in the style of those dark but yet colourful eighties movies. It stars B-flick legend Rutger Hauer as the hobo with a shotgun, whom we got to meet briefly at the Imagine Film Festival in The Netherlands. The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and the coming months it will open in different countries all over the world. Sarcastic Assault writer Pim Wijers had a chat with director Jason Eisener to find out how this film came to be, where Eisener’s evident love for the seventies and eighties comes from, what it was like working with his childhood hero Hauer and about the use of the classical gore effects that take the viewer back twenty years down memory lane!
