Hobo with a Shotgun kills Sundance 

No surprise, Jason Eisener's bloodbath is gory hit of the festival.


Could the incredibly fun, bat-shit-insanely sadistic B-movie Hobo With a Shotgun possibly stand a chance of breaking through to the mainstream?

Yes, according to New York Magazine, who called the film a sadistic pleasure that made them laugh so hard they cried. Esquire tweeted, "Hobo with a Shotgun: gleeful Grand Guignol/Grindhouse lark has gags to make you gag, w/ Rutger Hauer savoring buffoonish butchery." Variety: "One may be inclined to decry the pic's continuous, outrageous lapses in taste, but to do so would ultimately be pointless; they're the film's entire raison d'etre, and anyone who shows up for this surely knows what they're in for." And the list goes on...

Dudes, this is huge.

Our guy in Redfordville, Glen Matthews, who plays "Gang Leader" in the film has been diligently blogging the scene with some help from Zoe Dunsworth, giving the lowdown on the festival, screenings and after-party (with appropriately, Elijah Wood). Read it here.
