Hobo with a Shotgun is a 2011 Canadian horror exploitation film directed by Jason Eisener and written by John Davies. It is based on the winning trailer of the same name from Robert Rodriguez's South by Southwest Grindhouse trailers contest.
A hobo (Rutger Hauer) arrives in a lawless place called Hope Town (graffiti sprayed over the word "hope" on the town sign makes it read "Scum Town") via freight train. Scum Town is ruled with an iron fist by The Drake (Brian Downey) and his sadistic sons Ivan (Nick Bateman) and Slick (Gregory Smith). Just as he arrives, the Hobo witness the execution of The Drake's brother Logan (Robb Wells), who is decapitated at the hands of Ivan and Slick.
The Hobo later visits a pawn shop, where he sees a lawnmower costing $49.99. In order to buy it and start a lawnmowing business, the Hobo starts begging for change on a sidewalk, where he sees Ivan and Slick entering a building. He follows them into an arcade and witnesses them harassing a boy named Otis, who owes them money. A prostitute named Abby (Molly Dunsworth) attempts to stop them. Slick decides to kill her, but the Hobo knocks him unconscious and takes him to the police station in order to turn him in. However, the police chief reveals his corruption and allows Slick to escape. He and Ivan beat the Hobo up and carve the word "scum" into his chest before throwing him into a garbage bin. He runs across Abby who takes him to her apartment, where she tends to his wounds. The next day, the Hobo goes to a local cameraman who pays homeless people to inflict harm upon themselves. Upon completing a series of degrading acts, including eating glass, he earns enough money to purchase the lawnmower. As he is about to buy the lawnmower, a trio of robbers enter the pawnshop, taking a woman and her baby hostage. The Hobo grabs a shotgun from the shelf to kill the robbers. Realizing that Hope Town needs justice, he chooses the shotgun - which also costs $49.99 - over the lawnmower, and goes on a rampage, killing dozens of criminals, including the cameraman and a pedophile dressed as Santa Claus.
The Drake, infuriated by the positive effect that the Hobo's actions are having on the townspeople, instructs Ivan and Slick to get rid of him. After using a flamethrower on a school bus filled with children in order to remind the citizens of Hope Town that they are to be feared, they burst into a television station during a live news broadcast, kill the anchor (played by George Strombolopolous in a cameo role) and demand that all homeless people be killed, leading to the formation of mobs which start attacking vagrants. One of the mobs hears the Hobo using the shotgun to save Abby from a perverted cop intending to rape her. The mob starts running towards them, but they are able to make a clever getaway. However, Otis sees them and calls Slick to inform him of the Hobo's location.
