Hobo With A Shotgun (2011)
This is another branch on the family tree that began with the Grindhouse double-feature. And while the original fake trailer which this feature was based on better captured that sleazy 'seventies feel than movie that it eventually became, Hobo With A Shotgun was always entertaining...even if it was usually ridiculous.
The introduction of The Plague (an armored pair of hooligans--possibly demonic in nature) kind of ruined the final third if the film for me, as it steered it into out-of-character dimensions. But if you're in the mood for mindless and bizarre hyper-violence, but aren't willing to read Japanese subtitles, then this may be just the movie you're looking for.
