The 2011 film '''''Hobo With A Shotgun''''' started out as a [[RealTrailerFakeMovie fake movie trailer]] in ''Film/{{Grindhouse}}'', but thanks to independent filmmakers from [[UsefulNotes/{{Canada}} Dartmouth, Nova Scotia]], it became the second ''[=Grindhouse=]'' trailer (after ''Film/{{Machete}}'') to get converted into a full film.

* {{Narm}}: Like all good [=grindhouse=] tributes, this is invoked. The hobo often goes on nonsensical {{ice cream koan}}s, dramatic scenes have bizarre, overwrought, terrible dialogue, and... interesting faces are made during ridiculously implausible situations. [[invoked]]



* StylisticSuck: ''The Plague'' videogame is a retro BeatEmUp

Added DiffLines:

* ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill: The DirtyCop who commits the fatal mistake of pressing the Hobo's BerserkButton (see above), gets half a dozen shotgun shells pumped in his head and torso, until his upper body is reduced to a pile of blood and meat.

->''"I used to be like you, a long time ago. All brand new and perfect; no mistakes, no regrets. People look at you and think of how wonderful your future will be. They want you to be something special, like a doctor or a lawyer. I hate to tell you this, but if you grow up here, you're more likely to wind up selling your bodies on the streets or shooting dope from dirty needles in a bus stop. And if you're successful, you'll make money selling junk to crackheads, and won't think twice about killing someone's wife, because you won't even know it's wrong in the first place. Maybe… you'll end up like me. A [[TitleDrop hobo with a shotgun]]. I hope you can do better. You are the future."''

* PsychoSupporter: Drake has a gang of groupies who run around in bikinis and enjoy violence just as much as he does. One girl dances in the RainOfBlood caused by Drake's execution of his brother, and later, they cheerfully beat on a human pinata Drake was holding prisoner. With [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill a razor-studded]] Gorn baseball bat, no less.
