Quentin Tarantino's "The Hateful Eight" is a cold movie. Emotionally, it's his most frigid work since "Reservoir Dogs," a largely one-set western/thriller dripping with blood and vitriol. Tarantino strands his characters in a Wyoming general store in the middle of a raging blizzard — it's brutally cold outside but not much better inside. Everyone appears to be freezing. While it's hardly a surprise that a cast of accomplished thespians including Samuel L. Jackson, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Tim Roth, and Bruce Dern proved adept at acting like they were chilled to the bone, Tarantino left nothing to chance. They're not acting — it really was that freaking cold on the set.
