Some screenings of Grindhouse (mainly in Canada) also featured a fake trailer for a film titled Hobo With a Shotgun. The trailer, created by Dartmouth, Nova Scotia filmmakers Jason Eisener, John Davies, and Rob Cotterill, won Robert Rodriguez's South by Southwest Grindhouse trailers contest. In the trailer, a vagabond with a 20-gauge shotgun is taking the law into his own hands. In the trailer, the main character is seen killing numerous persons, ranging from armed robbers to corrupt cops to a pedophilic Santa Claus. The trailer was available in certain selected movie theaters in the United States and Canada. There have been discussions about making the trailer into an actual feature.
