Local guy wins Hobo With A Shotgun contest

We've updated our Hali-wood Goes Horror-wood podcast. It's a special hour-long compilation of all our interviews with movie director Jason Eisener, and it now includes his April 11th appearance on Mainstreet with Keith Hodder from Mineville. Keith's trailer Van Gore just won the Hobo With A Shotgun trailer contest, and will be featured on the Hobo DVD & Blu-ray. In this podcast, we also meet Rutger Hauer (who plays the Hobo) on the Hobo set during production in Halifax. Another local guy, Mark Palermo, talks about how he got a big break and ended up co-writing the horror/comedy Detention. And finally, Mainstreet's Alex Mason talks about the appeal of movies where horrible things happen to the characters on screen, including the (say what?) sexual attraction one woman confesses to feeling toward a notorious pop culture serial killer.

Also: we have a mini podcast with the entire Mainstreet crew doing a tag-team review of Hobo With A Shotgun, the day after it's red carpet premiere in Halifax.
