Someone Finally Counted How Many People Quentin Tarantino’s Killed in His Movies

Violence is the most obvious through line in Quentin Tarantino’s work. His movies have lots of blood, guts, and gore; deaths come as thick and heavy as the dialogue. All that killing can become a bit of a blur, but one brave soul, video essayist Kevin B. Lee, has finally slogged through the carnage to produce a scientific accounting of every single casualty in the director’s oeuvre. 

I won’t spoil the final number, but suffice to say The Hateful Eight should add a few dozen bodies to the count.
