The Drake and his sons Ivan and Slick are the main antagonists in the grind-house movie Hobo with a Shotgun

They are a crime family that rules "Scum Town" (Hope Town), and make the citizens live in fear through their shows, which involve killing people who they see as traitors and the hobos in a gruesome way. They are incredibly sadistic, with a fondness for quite brutally killing people to settle grudges or even just to send a message to someone. They have no qualms about who they kill, with even children and their own relatives dying at the hands of this maniacal family. They rule the city unopposed, as they have most of the city's police force paid off, and likely several of the town's political leaders as well. They meet their match, however, when a nameless hobo comes to town and starts bringing his own brand of justice to the streets with a shotgun.

It is never specified what criminal activities the family is involved in, although it is most likely to be drug dealing, as Slick is seen with a considerable amount of cocaine twice and giving it away as it was nothing, also their henchmen are never revealed but they are probably the punks that are seen torturing homeless people on the arcade owned by the Drake. Prostitution and possibly sexual trafficking are other criminal enterprises that the family likely runs, between the fact that they have several beautiful women by their sides much of the time, and a scene in which the Hobo kills a pair of guys (One or both of whom were likely employees of the Drake) who appeared to be in the process of selling women as slaves. The family is also aided by a contract killing team known as The Plague on capturing and/or killing enemies.

The Drake was portrayed by Brian Downey. Slick was portrayed by Gregory Smith. Ivan was portrayed by Nick Bateman.


Hobo enters the city Hope Town, where he sees all sorts of brutality and violence. The city is ran by The Drake, with his two sons Ivan and SlickItalic. The Drake with his sons come to the city, killing The Drake's younger brother Logan, for being a "traitor". They kill him by making his head stuck to the ground, and they tied a noose around his neck, and around a car, decapitating him.

The Hobo the whole time, is just trying to find a normal life, staring at a lawnmower. So The Hobo ends up trying raise money to buy it. However, he sees some punks abusing and attacking people, inside of The Drake's club. Inside, he finds both of the brothers, where they are torturing and killing innocent people. Both of the sons end up attacking a boy named Otis, for not giving them money in-time, so they break his hand. While Abby, a proustite tires to defend the boy, but fails.

Slick ends up getting close to murdering Abby, but the Hobo knocks him out, and brings him to the police. Inside the police, Hobo tries to get Slick in-prison, which escalates in the police owner, with the brothers, attacking the Hobo, carving into his skin, and throwing him inside of a garbage bin. Abby ends up be-friending the Hobo, and she helps him recover from the scars.

Next day, Hobo went to the film-maker, which records people in-pain. The film-maker pays Hobo, and the Hobo ends up eating glass, enough for him to get a lawn-mower which he wanted. He enters the store to buy it, but a group of criminals went inside, getting near of killing a woman, and shooting her baby. The Hobo gets furious from all of this, grabs a shot-gun from the store and shoots the criminals. After the killings, Hobo starts chasing down villains in the city such as the film-maker, a coke lord, a pimp and finally a pedophiliac which is dressed as Santa Clause.

The news outlets start talking about the Hobo being a hero of the city, doing good deeds, and defending the innocent. In-rage The Drake lets his sons go on a tantrum. The two sons end up burning a school bus filled of innocent kids going to school, and they enter the television station which is covering the Hobo news, and kill the host. After of which, The Drake and his son say that all homeless people should get killed, and that The Drake wants the Hobo to get brought to him. After this event, the city becomes even more crazier, with much more killings.

In the middle of the night, Abby is seen going home, but a police-officer tries to sexual-abuse her. The Hobo finds them and shoots the officer. A group of people trying to kill the Hobo are trying to find him, so Abby puts the Hobo inside of the officers remains, and drags him away in a shopping cart. Otis ends up seeing the two, the Hobo and Abby so he contacts The Drake's sons. Both of the sons end up locating them inside of Abbies home. While Abby and Hobo are talking about just going away from the city, and finding a job in another place, by lawnmowing. The two sons enter the apartment, which escalates in a major fight. Abbies neck gets cut out, getting her near to dying, and Slick gets murdered though his crotch area, by The Hobo with the shot-gun, Ivan being the only son of The Drake now.

The Hobo takes Abby to a hospital where she gets medical treatment. The Drake gets a call from his son, and gets furious after realizing his favorite son is passing away. So he summons The Plague team, two Samurai-Demon creatures, which go on a hunt to kill the Hobo. While Abby is recovering in hospital, the Plague ends up taking The Hobo to The Drake, in order to execute him.

Abby recovered, and manages to get weapons. She ends up confronting the Drake, holding his only son Ivan hostage. The Drake grins and explains how Ivan just isn't worth it, and he shoots his only son. Abby ends up killing one of the Plague members, and helps The Hobo to get up. The movie ends with a massive massacre, where both The Drake and Hobo die.



When life gives you razor blades... make a baseball bat covered in razor blades!
~ The Drake right before he kills someone

Drake is the demented crime lord of Scum Town. He raised Slick and Ivan to be violent and eventually continue with his legacy of crime. He is feared by everyone, even his own sons, although Slick tells him before dying that he "was a pretty rad father". The Drake has many hookers around him, who take sexual pleasure in watching his horrible murders, with one even taking a shower in his brother's blood.

The Drake loves to inspire fear to the town, and to "entertain" them with his murders. He always referred to Slick as his favorite son and mourned his death when learning of it, but it seems that he never really cared about Ivan, to the point of him being fine with killing him due to being "replaceable".

Main article: The Drake


I hate hobos!
~ Slick's most infamous line.

Slick is the Drake's favorite son. He is completely remorseless, extremely sadistic and colder than Ivan, being highly amused by torture and watching his victims suffer and die, but he is not as aggressive and violent like Ivan is. Slick is smarter and more ambitious than his brother, aspiring to become a crime lord like his father, making him more dangerous than his brother.

He shows hatred The Hobo for knocking him out on the citizen arrest attempt, even his father makes fun of him asking if a "school bully took your lunch money". Slick is often the leader when acting with his brother, mostly due to his higher intelligence and greater focus capability.


Woo! It's a beautiful day for a skate rape!
~ Ivan before he and his brother attempt to kill The Hobo and rape Abby

He is second rate to Slick in their father's eyes. Ivan is horribly sadistic, taking pleasure from pain, even his own. He is much more aggressive and violent than Slick, but he is the least threatening of the three due to not being very smart, only focusing on violence and causing pain to others instead of focusing on growing as a criminal. Due to this, he often follows his brother on whatever their duties are, often taking a perverted amusement to their games.

Despite this, he was still dangerous by himself by being more short-tempered, aggressive and violent than his brother and father. He is also shown to be trigger-happy. His father knows that he has no potential to become a crime lord, which he proves when the Drake kills his own son in cold blood, feeling him to be useless and incapable to replace Slick after his passing. Ivan is also a very skilled fighter, such as when he had a fight with the Hobo only using Ice Skates as weapons to combat him despite The Hobo using a shotgun, nearly killing him by himself.
