The featured Hope Town Gazette articles have different titles and bylines, each naming a different production/crew member; however, each "article" has the same text content, originally written by Todd Brown of Twitch.com, who was one of the first to announce the upcoming film. That text begins with, "Yes, kids, I've been sitting on this for a while now, but with the director and star both talking about it publicly in recent days, I suppose the muzzle is off." See more »
When the bad guys approach the school bus, the rear exit door window clearly has no "PORTE DE SECOURS" sign on it (which is French for Emergency Exit). But just a moment later when the kids inside try to escape the burning bus, one of the kids can be seen at the rear exit door, where now can plainly be seen the inscription "PORTE DE SECOURS" on the window.

This film actually exceeded my expectations as it captured the essence of exploitation films in every way, such as the Technicolor. The grittiness, the violence, and some of the dialogue all fit in this film very well. Since this type of film is not to be taken seriously, it's hard to actually pinpoint some of it's problems. There was some over the top silliness in the film (look at the board to see why) that made me shake my head a little. Kind of a 'what's the point of this'? Other than that, this film is perfect for people who don't take movies seriously, which is more than I can say for some people on this board complaining that this movie shouldn't be bad for bad sakes. What else would you expect from a movie called "Hobo with a Shotgun"? The filmmakers of this movie in my opinion have created their own genre, kind of like Metallica did with Thrash Metal (Thrashploitation, maybe?). Hopefully we can see a trend going on with this genre because with constant CGI and Hollywood formula, it's nice to see a movie that is really "different".
I thought the crew could have made this movie a bit better, but it's their first feature. I hope the filmmakers go on the comment section of this movie and read what they could do to improve their filmmaking, as they should progress their talents further. I have no clue how they are going to do the same without Rutger Hauer or the Grindhouse backing, but I am looking forward to seeing their next film.
