Last Summer we were treated to Machete, the first of the faux Grindhouse trailers to be turned into a full feature movie. Last weekend I was informed the second movie from the trailers was to be released in theaters on May, 6th. Hobo with a Shotgun features B-movie star Rutger Hauer in the title role, and newcomer writer/director Jason Eisener. Checkout the red band trailer below, or hell, just watch the movie OnDemand before it hits theaters next month… details HERE!
When I saw Machete in the theater back in August they played a metric ass ton of trailers, they always do! After the trailers they played their little theater introduction and then low and behold, another trailer. This one was a little different though, it had that Grindhouse feel to it just like Machete a few years back. It showed a monster of a man, the so-called new icon in horror Victor Crowley, absolutely destroying a bunch of people who had no idea that death stood right around the corner.

For those of you who never had a chance to see the full Grindhouse double feature in the theater not only did you miss out on a hell of a gruesome ride, but you missed some amazingly funny fake trailers by Robert Rodriquez, Quentin Tarantino and a few other directors. One of those trailers was for Machete. The positive out-pour over the trailer was so great that Rodriquez decided to make the dream come alive. That dream was a lead role for long time bad guy Danny Trejo, who plays an ex Mexican Federale who prefers the devastation of a huge blade to the precision of a gun. Those not familiar with the name should be much more familiar with the face and the work of Trejo. He had small, usually bad guys parts in movies like The Replacement Killers, Heat, Desperado, and even as an Indian chief in Fanboys. His scarred face and tattooed body is not something you easily forget, and now you get to see him as the hero which is a long time coming for the 66-year old actor who spent years in and out of prison.

Imagine making sweet love to a large boobied blonde woman, getting your rocks off one minute, and then getting put into a concentration camp, being tortured and then castrated the next… Yeah… Shitty, eh? If you think that’s bad, that’s all happens within the first 5 minutes of Don Edmonds‘ Ilsa, She Wolf of the SS (1975), starring Dyanne Thorne (of the Ilsa series fame, and Wham Bam Thank You Spaceman)
