Hobo with a Shotgun
Back in January, SXSW launched a contest looking for the scariest, freakiest movie trailers. In honor of Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino's upcoming movie Grindhouse, amateur filmmakers were invited create their own grindhouse trailers. The best submissions were presented at the festival a couple of weeks ago by Rodriguez.
Here's one that I like, Hobo with a Shotgun. Simple, direct and hilarious. Plus, it delivers what it promises.
