The Hateful Eight

Revealing mistake: 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. (01:57:00)

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: When they pick up Warren on the stagecoach, the second shot from inside has the wrong direction of landscape outside, so it seems that Warren changed from the front to the back row.

Continuity mistake: After the Major shoots the General, the General spins and you can see where the bullet exited the back of the coat. When the Sheriff puts the coat on there is no bullet hole.

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. (01:38:00 - 01:42:30)

Michael Buskin

Trivia: Towards the end of the movie. When Major Marquis runs out of ammo, in the slow motion scene. The score is taken from John Carpenter's "The Thing", another movie staring Kurt Russell.

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

Major Marquis Warren: When the handbill says "dead or alive", the rest of us just shoot you in the back from up on top a perch somewhere and bring you in dead over a saddle. When John Ruth the Hangman catches you...you hang.

John Ruth: No one said this job was supposed to be easy.
Major Marquis Warren: Nobody said it's supposed to be that hard, either.

More quotes from The Hateful Eight

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

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.

Answer: Yep, gotta be a mistake. If they even had snow plows back then, the plow would have had to been between the bad guys and the stage and would have arrived, or passed by, at a very inopportune time. I think the director just missed this, or didn't think anyone would notice.

Answer: Think you mean the plow would have arrived before the stage. But yes, a mistake for sure.

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.

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.
