The Hateful Eight

Factual error: The bed in the "Haberdashery" has a box spring under the mattress. Referring to a "History of Bedding": "By 1927...box springs with ticking covers were still new." Having one in this time and remote location would have been impossible.

Factual error: Six-Horse Judy has a distinctive New Zealand accent. But the New Zealand accent would not have been in existence as early as the period in which the movie is set. The non-Maori inhabitants of 1860s/1870s Auckland were largely British or Irish settlers who would have spoken with the accents of their native countries, as would their New Zealand born children.

Factual error: When the criminal gang arrives at the Haberdashery and kills Minnie, Six-Horse Judy, et al, there is blood everywhere, including big smears on the floor. In the 1860's/70's, it would have been virtually impossible to clean up all that blood, especially on wood plank floors, but when the second stagecoach arrives carrying Major Warren, John Ruth, Daisy and Chris Mannix they don't notice that a massacre just occurred there. Even today, with much better cleaning tools and solutions, it would be hard.

Mistakes

When Warren begins shooting Bob, a massive blood spurt is shown each time he shoots him. Each time he is shot, the blood spurts don't line up with the area where Warren shoots at. The first time Warren shoots Bob, the gun is showing firing at his stomach, but the blood is shown spurting from his chest and the second time he shoots Bob, the gun is fired at the top of his chest, but the blood spurts come from a couple of inches below where he was shot.

Trivia

The guitar that Domergue plays and that was subsequently destroyed by Ruth was a priceless antique from the 1870's on loan from the Martin Guitar Museum. Six replicas were made for the film, however Kurt Russell wasn't correctly informed and destroyed the original. Due to this the Martin Guitar Museum said they would never lend an instrument to film shoots ever again.
