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
The guitar that Daisy Domergue (Jennifer Jason Leigh) played while singing "Jim Jones at Botany Bay" was a priceless antique from the 1870s, on loan from the Martin Guitar Museum and worth some $40,000. At the end of the song, the script called for John "The Hangman" Ruth (Kurt Russell) to grab the guitar and smash it to pieces. Six replicas were built for the shoot, and were supposed to be substituted for the real instrument for the smashing shot, but due to a miscommunication, Kurt Russell was not informed, and destroyed the original guitar before anyone could stop him. Jennifer Jason Leigh's shocked reaction to this is genuine, and can be seen in the released film. The Martin Guitar Museum subsequently announced they would never loan guitars to film shoots again.

For it's theatrical release in India, the CBFC demanded that 1 minute and 34 seconds of cuts be made to the film removing some stronger elements of violence/gore throughout, course language and detail/dialogue relating to a scene of forced sexual activity. The cuts made are as follows: all scenes which feature shooting and violence were cut down by half of what was originally shown, the vomiting scene was reduced especially to shots of blood being vomited onto Daisy's face, reductions were also made to sight of Daisy cutting of a corpse's hand and to close-up shots of Daisy's face as she hangs from a rope in the final scene. The close-up shot of the Mexican's head being blown off after being shot was also completely removed. Further cuts were also made to the forced oral sex scene; removing all visuals of the act itself as well as toning down the visuals before the act were the nude man is seen walking through the snow. Sound edits were also made to this scene muting out some of Jackson's dialogue about the event; the phrases 'Black Pecker', 'Black Johnson' and 'Black Dingus' were all muted out along with some of the bad language used throughout the film, the terms 'bitch', 'whore' 'motherf**ker' and 'son of a bitch' were all muted out whenever used. The filmmakers were also required to attach an anti-smoking disclaimer and a health spot at the beginning (and at the middle of the film in versions with an Interval) they were also made to attach a small notice at the bottom of the screen whenever a character is seen smoking in the film.

i wonder what quentin was thinking when he made this movie. did he think that a lot of people would find burden, boring, forgettable chitchat entertaining. character have not emotion, no character whatsoever, they are are like a wooden sticks with no back story. on top of that nearly the whole movie is filmed in one place, a wooden shack house in snowy mountains with an odd change of scenery at the beginning and end of the movie. how is this a western movie? i fail to see any connection between the hate and the eight in it. it turns into a murder mystery that drags on for too long. after 1 hour 30 minutes i felt the urge to leave the cinema but i summoned enough courage to continue watching it despite my displeasure. it got slightly a bit more invoking when a few shots were fired but it went back to old uninteresting chitchat again and it dragged on even more until a scene played out of nowhere which explains how everyone got in the shack and their objectives. the ending was miserable. there is something very dark in quentin and must his sh*t that's coming out of his mouth in recent times.
i rate this movie 1 out of 10
