Dartmouth's Dark Side chronicler talks wrestling, Hobo with a Shotgun, and the cult classic Siege.
The Dartmouth filmmaker Jason Eisener made an international splash in 2007 with the grindhouse short Hobo With A Shotgun, which became a feature starring Rutger Hauer in 2011. He's the perfect guy to have helped unearth the 1981 Halifax cult classic Siege, directed by a pre-Salter Street Films Paul Donovan, about a group of fascist vigilantes attempting to take over the city during a (real) police strike. Vice (and Crave in Canada) has just launched the third season of Eisener and Evan Husney's acclaimed Dark Side of the Ring wrestling series, which Eisener had to direct over skype for the past year. He's got lots to chat about.
