The Hateful Eight

New this month Question: The road leading up to Minnie's has been freshly plowed when the stage arrives. It is obvious because there are sharp boarders at the edge of the road and no tracks. Did the bushwhackers plow the road to eliminate evidence of their nefarious deeds?

New this month Answer: Good catch! This should be a revealing mistake entry. The plowing was part of the set preparation. I saw several scenes in the film where the roads had obviously been plowed. It's not hard to see if you look for the small ridges left by the plow on either side of the road.

Question: I know it was never really found out, but was Chris Mannix really the new sheriff of Red Rock?

Chosen answer: Yes, I think he is the only person besides John Ruth that didn't lie about anything during the course of the movie. It is somewhat proven after not accepting Daisy's proposal at the end.

Question: Maybe I saw it wrong since it happened so fast, but wasn't Minnie shot in the face initially when she was behind the counter? If so, surely she wouldn't still be alive, yet she was still alive when seen a little later on the floor where she is shot again in the stomach/chest.

Chosen answer: You are thinking of two different characters. Jody shoots Minnie in the head. Minnie has another lady working for her, who goes to get the jellybeans for Tim Roth. It is this other lady who was shot while getting the jelly beans, and then shot again while lying on the floor.

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.
