THIS is what we want to see from a new zombie film...
...Horror streaming service Shudder has dropped a new red band trailer and poster for First Nation's upcoming film, Blood Quantum, and boy oh boy, is it bloody! Written/directed by Mi’gmaq filmmaker Jeff Barnaby, the film promises to be an action-packed, bloody as hell zombie fest, which is exactly the kind of kick in the ass the zombie genre needs right now.
In Blood Quantum:
"The dead are coming back to life outside the isolated Mi’gmaq reserve of Red Crow, except for its Indigenous inhabitants who are immune to the zombie plague. Traylor, the tribal sheriff, must protect his son’s pregnant girlfriend, apocalyptic refugees, and reserve riff raff from the hordes of walking white corpses."
The film stars Michael Greyeyes (Fear the Walking Dead), Elle-Máijá Tailfeathers (The Body Remembers When the World Broke Open) and Forrest Goodluck (The Revenant).
Blood Quantum will be out in theaters in Canada (released by Elevation Pictures) on March 27th, 2020, and in limited release in the US this Spring, before coming to Shudder (US and UK).
