    Jason! You are amazing! Hobo is a fantastic movie. However Run away from Fede alvarez. He ruined evil dead and his other movie was awful. All he does is pushes female leads in movies that don’t need them cause he is a sell out and a purveyor or PC trash. Something you do not need clouing your awesome image. However Jason you the man!

      Oh please.

      Evil Dead was amazing and much better than the originals and Don’t Breathe was also amazing. Both movies had huge success.

      Fede is probably one of the most talented guys to be working on the horror genre today.
      Get lost fanboy.
