The Hateful Eight is out in theaters and it’s an impressive work from one of the best directors of our time. Along with The Revenant, fans of the Westerns have two great entries into the genre, both gritty and violent. If you’re a fan of Hateful Eight, check out our list of more gritty Westerns you are sure to love. From Josey Wales to Unforgiven, these flicks chart some of the darkest and most realistic stories set in early America. Check out the video above for our complete list.
Of course we can’t fit everything in our list, so a shout out goes to our honorable mentions A Fistful of Dollars (another Clint Eastwood classic), Deadwood (the excellent HBO series), and Dead Man (a surreal Western starring Johnny Depp).
Still haven’t seen The Hateful Eight yourself? Check out the trailer below and head to the theaters now before it’s too late!
