It opened the 2019 TIFF “Midnight Madness” series as one of the most hotly anticipated Canadian horror films of the year, Blood Quantum is the latest film from Mi’kmaq filmmaker Jeff Barnaby (Rhymes For Young Ghouls).
The dead are coming back to life outside the isolated Mi’gMaq reserve of Red Crow, except for its Indigenous inhabitants who are strangely immune to the zombie plague. Traylor, the local tribal law enforcement, armed with nothing but a gun, a hangover, and a six-pack, must protect his son’s pregnant girlfriend, apocalyptic refugees, and drunken reserve riff-raff from the hordes of walking corpses infesting the streets of Red Crow.
Canada 2019, 96 min, Dir: Jeff Barnaby
