YMMV: Hobo With a Shotgun
  • Awesome Music: Several tracks however the John Carpenter inspired Plague Theme Hunters by Power Glove takes the cake.
    • The use of Lisa Rougheed's Run With Us (the main theme for The Raccoons) on the closing credits can be seen as an odd example, but can hit a serious nostalgia button if you were a fan of the show.
  • Crosses the Line Twice: Beating a man to death with baseball bats? Disturbing. Three topless women beating a man who's hung by his feet like a pinata, followed by Drake slashing his guts open with a razor-covered baseball bat and the girls cheering? Bloody Hilarious.
  • Moment Of Awesome: Abby's tussle with The Drake at the end of the movie in which, after getting her hand messily destroyed with a lawn mower, she turns it around and repeatedly shanks him with the exposed arm bone!
  • Narm: Like all good grindhouse tributes, this is invoked. The hobo often goes on nonsensical ice cream koans, dramatic scenes have bizarre dialogue, and... interesting faces are made.
  • So Bad, It's Good: Invoked. Since it was adapted from a fake trailer for the Grindhouse series, this is to be expected.
  • Tear Jerker: A few scenes manage to evoke this, surprisingly. Slick and Drake's last conversation and the Hobo's speech to the infants pull off a certain amount of emotion.
