Storyline

Some time after the Civil War, a stagecoach hurtles through the wintry Wyoming landscape. Bounty hunter John Ruth and his fugitive captive Daisy Domergue race towards the town of Red Rock, where Ruth will bring Daisy to justice. Along the road, they encounter Major Marquis Warren (an infamous bounty hunter) and Chris Mannix (a man who claims to be Red Rock's new sheriff). Lost in a blizzard, the bunch seeks refuge at Minnie's Haberdashery. When they arrive they are greeted by unfamiliar faces: Bob, who claims to be taking care of the place while Minnie is gone; Oswaldo Mobray, the hangman of Red Rock; Joe Gage, a cow puncher; and confederate general Sanford Smithers. As the storm overtakes the mountainside, the eight travelers come to learn that they might not make it to Red Rock after all... Written by Jordan Crighton

Crazy Credits

The roadshow version of the film opens with a faux-vintage Weinstein Company logo, in flat white-on-blue with a very 70s font along with a "Cinerama" logo. The first few credits appear in the same font as the logo's before switching to Tarantino's usual Friz Quadrata. The standard release opens with only the normal Weinstein Company logo before going directly into the sweeping Panavision shots. See more »

Alternate Versions

For it's theatrical release in India, the CBFC demanded that 1 minute and 34 seconds of cuts be made to the film removing some stronger elements of violence/gore throughout, course language and detail/dialogue relating to a scene of forced sexual activity. The cuts made are as follows: all scenes which feature shooting and violence were cut down by half of what was originally shown, the vomiting scene was reduced especially to shots of blood being vomited onto Daisy's face, reductions were also made to sight of Daisy cutting of a corpse's hand and to close-up shots of Daisy's face as she hangs from a rope in the final scene. The close-up shot of the Mexican's head being blown off after being shot was also completely removed. Further cuts were also made to the forced oral sex scene; removing all visuals of the act itself as well as toning down the visuals before the act were the nude man is seen walking through the snow. Sound edits were also made to this scene muting out some of Jackson's dialogue about the event; the phrases 'Black Pecker', 'Black Johnson' and 'Black Dingus' were all muted out along with some of the bad language used throughout the film, the terms 'bitch', 'whore' 'motherf**ker' and 'son of a bitch' were all muted out whenever used. The filmmakers were also required to attach an anti-smoking disclaimer and a health spot at the beginning (and at the middle of the film in versions with an Interval) they were also made to attach a small notice at the bottom of the screen whenever a character is seen smoking in the film.

Minnie's Haberdashery, where the elite meet
10 April 2016 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

You'd have to go back 80 years or so to the film adaptation of Sidney Kingsley's Dead End to find a film where the set qualifies as a living participant of the action. The house in the adaption of the Eugene O'Neill classic Long Day's Journey Into Night also qualifies here.

The action is set up when the stagecoach where bounty hunter Kurt Russell is taking his prisoner Jennifer Jason Leigh to the town of Red Rock to be hung. A couple of prairie hitchhikers also come on board another bounty hunter Samuel L. Jackson and Walton Goggins son of a former Confederate general who says he's the new sheriff in the town of Red Rock. Kurt Russell replete with full flowing beard and mustache is one suspicious man. He has those suspicions justified before the film is ended.

80% of the action takes place on set of the 19th century bed and breakfast during the time of a nasty Wyoming winter and does the dialog crackle. If you think you're going to see a western the kind that John Ford or Howard Hawks or Henry Hathaway did back in the old days, then don't watch The Hateful Eight. Hateful is the operating word with these characters, there's nothing really noble about any of them.

Besides the set of Minnie's Haberdashery to recommend it, Quentin Tarrantino selected a truly fine ensemble cast who play beautifully off each other. As the outlaw queen Jennifer Jason Leigh got a Best Supporting Actress nomination, but in my humble opinion she doesn't stand out any more than any of the rest of them. The Hateful Eight also earned Ennio Morricone an Oscar for the best musical score for 2015.

The Hateful Eight is a great western, but it ain't your grandpa's kind of western.
