An Indigenous Reservation Community Takes On The Zombie Apocalypse In ‘BLOOD QUANTUM’

The residents of the Red Crow Mi'gMaq Reservation are immune to a new zombie plague. So they are the only ones who can fight back!

Shudder’s upcoming U.S. release of Jeff Barnaby’s, Blood Quantum, has gotten its first trailer, and it looks like a bloody good time. A zombie horror movie, where residents of the Red Crow Mi’gMaq Reservation, discover they are immune to a quickly spreading zombie plague.

Blood Quantum Trailer:

“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.”


Written and directed by Jeff Barnaby, and staring Michael GreyeyesElle-Máijá Tailfeathers, and Forrest Goodluck. The film serves as a bloody commentary on colonialism, with its title, “Blood Quantum,” being a reference to the blood quantum laws or “Indian blood laws.” A set of laws enacted by early north american colonial governments to identify members of Indigenous tribes by percentage of ancestry, via blood measurement.

An interesting movie concept indeed, Blood Quantum recieved great reviews during its intial September 5, 2019 release. Horror fans can expect Blood Quantum to hit shudder, sometime during 2020.
