Some time after the Civil War, a stagecoach hurtles through the wintry Wyoming landscape. Bounty hunter John Ruth and his fugitive captive Daisy Domergue race towards the town of Red Rock, where Ruth will bring Daisy to justice. Along the road, they encounter Major Marquis Warren (an infamous bounty hunter) and Chris Mannix (a man who claims to be Red Rock's new sheriff). Lost in a blizzard, the bunch seeks refuge at Minnie's Haberdashery. When they arrive they are greeted by unfamiliar faces: Bob, who claims to be taking care of the place while Minnie is gone; Oswaldo Mobray, the hangman of Red Rock; Joe Gage, a cow puncher; and confederate general Sanford Smithers. As the storm overtakes the mountainside, the eight travelers come to learn that they might not make it to Red Rock after all...Written by
Writer and director Quentin Tarantino announced at Comic-Con in 2015 that Ennio Morricone would compose the score for the film. Tarantino remarked that it would be the first western scored by Morricone in forty years. He had previously used Morricone's music in Kill Bill: Vol. 2 (2004), Death Proof (2007), Inglourious Basterds (2009), and Django Unchained (2012). Morricone also wrote a brand-new song, "Ancora Qui", for the latter. Despite stories of tensions between the two, Tarantino decided to have Morricone on-board to compose original music for the movie, making it the first film by Tarantino to use mainly an original musical score. Most of his previous films have used mainly source music, with only a few cues of original score. See more »
In the stagecoach, after John gives Daisy the beef jerky and John tells Mannix to shut up, Mannix leans over to the Major. The Major raises up his gun without cocking it, but the soundtrack plays the sound of a pistol being cocked. See more »
The credit includes "Checkpoint Charlie," the person whose job is to prevent anyone from entering the set with a cellphone. See more »
On April 25, 2019 Netflix released a new Extended Version of The Hateful Eight with a few changes from the Roadshow Version. This version did not include the intermission, but did include several new shots and scenes. Most noticeably, it was also release in four (4) episodes as a mini-series. See more »
Everything you would come to expect from Tarantino, just on a more confined scale. The original screen play and acting both amaze, it is always refreshing to see some of the banter and slang he comes up with. Yes it is super violent but once again the director makes it so we really don't care, the music fits perfect as well.
