The Hateful Eight (2015)

Film details


In Wyoming, several years after the American Civil War, bounty hunter John Ruth is travelling to the town of Red Rock with dangerous criminal Daisy Domergue to collect a reward for her capture. Along the way, they encounter Major Marquis Warren, a former Union soldier, turned bounty hunter, and one Chris Mannix who claims to be Red Rock’s new sheriff. When a blizzard forces them all to take shelter at a stagecoach mountain stopover, Minnie's Haberdashery, they find themselves snowed in with a motley group of strangers, including a former Confederate general, the (English) local hangman and a Mexican who explains that Minnie is away visiting her mother. As the night goes on, events unfold, secrets are unearthed and lies, revenge and murder are soon in the air.
