While it may have started out as one of five fictitious trailers for Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez’s movie Grindhouse, this action-horror flick morphed from a teaser to a full-length feature film in 2011. Presented in the Mile High Horror Film Festival, this Canadian production follows a hobo who acquires—as the title bluntly reveals—a shotgun and begins a crusade righting the many wrongs in his home of Hope Town. Saving prostitutes, slaying corrupt cops, and hunting down a pedophilic Santa Claus are just a few of the ways this vagabond vigilante cleans up his city.

Bill Cosby, Al Pacino, Michael Jackson, Shaquille O’Neal, and Mike Tyson all on one stage? This may seem like an impossible gathering, but comedian and voice artist Aries Spears makes it happen. Spears—a longtime cast member on Fox’s retired sketch comedy show Mad TV—is known for cracking jokes about society’s strange habits and resurrecting some of America’s most adorned icons with his impersonations.
