Jason Eisner took the cult world by storm with his Grindhouse trailer turned feature film, Hobo with a Shotgun. Hobo, filled with tons of gratuitous violence, wonderful cinematography, and engaging characters, was an instant cult hit when released in theatres at Sundance back in January, and earned a positive review from Robert Saucedo in March.
Those that enjoyed Eisner’s effort in Hobo have something else to get excited for: Eisner is already in production for a film entitled Blatant Violence High, or BVH. With a name like that, one can expect a lot more of the same from what we’ve come to love about Eisner: a grindhouse feel, gore, and over-the-top violence. Eisner is working on the film with Karim Hussain, the cinematographer from Hobo, and Eisner claims on his Tumblr that the film is inspired by the 1989 street fighting video game Vigilante.
Jason Eisner directing a film based on a 1989 arcade brawler? Yes, please. This has the makings of another instant cult classic.
There is no word on the official release date as of yet, but we’ll be following this one at IP Movies to fruition.
