Next on the chopping block: Hobo With A Shotgun

If Rubber was a middle finger to mainstream movie making Hobo With A Shotgun is the football to the groin. Jason Eisener's 2011 Canadian grindhouse film is as over the top and in your face a piece of exploitation cinema as you can get, and it hates logic and good taste with a passion.

As was the case with Machete, Hobo With A Shotgun is a feature film based on a fake trailer. The question that begs asking is is here enough material there to fill a 90-minute film? And is that film any good? The presence of the great Rutger Hauer certainly adds interest, but how much mileage can Eisener get out of a hobo with shotgun?

The answer to these and other questions comes when the July Special lands Sunday at 8 p.m. PST on iTunes, Facebook, podOmatic and right here on the blog.

Our special episodes are stripped down versions of the radio show. Just a review and some lively banter. If you miss our hour-long episodes tune in Fridays at 4 p.m. at 92.5FM CFBX Kamloops, Shaw Cable 106.1 and www.thex.ca for archived Season One episodes.

And we'll be back in The Basement Oct. 7 at 10 p.m. PST for all new episodes with Season Two. Stick with us!

And now for a look at our feature presentation:
