This film is a thriller .It is the story of a bounty hunter and his prisoner who find shelter in a cabin which is already occupied by nefarious characters. The movie has a scene of violent sexual content, strong bloody violence, crude language and sexual nudity. The movie is rated R and hence parental guidance is needed. On a rating of ten this film would just get a single star. As the title suggests it is the story of eight characters that are caught in a storm in the mountainside and how they learn to live it out with each other. It is really surprising how the movie was nominated for three Oscar awards. It is truly a waste of seventy mm film.
