On some indelible and unavoidable website (Zombie's Closet, to be precise), we read that this great film, shot in over-saturated and hyperventilated colours, pure flesh, blood and entrails from grindhouse celluloid upholds a philosophy on Life, Death, Emptiness, Revenge and Surrender. Absolutely fabulous, some might think. It starts by yanking off a head that is blocked in an indescribable drain and goes on to show a barbecue of kids in a school bus that's worth its weight in fried meat. This movie marks the return of Rutger Hauer to the absolute underworld, his great descent into the dregs from Orion. It is directed by Jason Eisener and of course the story and his way of filming will be familiar: Hobo With a Shotgun was one of the false (yet succulent) trailers that we were offered by Grindhouse by Tarantino, Rodríguez and co.… Be careful how you use your stump to finish off the baddie.
