The Hateful Eight

In the dead of a Wyoming winter a few years after the Civil War, a bounty hunter (John Ruth) with his prisoner (Daisy), another bounty hunter (Major Warren) and the newly-elected Sheriff of Red Rock (Mannix) find shelter in a remote country store already inhabited by four strangers - a caretaker and 3 others seeking shelter from an approaching storm. Unbeknownst to the bounty hunters, the four strangers are part of a criminal gang who already killed the store owner and employees. They are there to rescue the prisoner, who is the sister of one of the gang members. As they all hunker down against the storm, John Ruth and the stagecoach driver are poisoned and die. Major Warren, shocked by the poisoning and now suspicious of the motives of the 4 strangers, unleashes a blood bath of violence that kills everyone leaving Mannix and himself mortally wounded, with the prisoner receiving her rightful justice.

Major Marquis Warren: Move a little strange, you're gonna get a bullet. Not a warning, not a question...a bullet.



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.



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.
