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.
