Blood Quantum (2019) (Blu-ray Review)
Directed By: Jeff Barnaby

Rated: UR/Region O/2.35/1080p/Number of Discs 1

The indigenous people in the isolated reserve of Red Crow are immune to the zombie plague that has taken over the nation, but that doesn’t mean their lives aren’t at risk. It’s up to Traylor (Michael Greyeyes, “Fear the Walking Dead”), the tribal sheriff, to protect the families residing on the reserve and a flood of desperate refugees from the hordes of bloodthirsty, walking white corpses that are closing in.

Shudder delivers a new original here in Blood Quantum! A movie I had seen on Shudder but now have seen in Blu-ray form with this new release from RLJE Films that bring it to disc. Out of the gate, this was one of the most unique and different feeling of zombies/infected movies we’ve had in years. I’d go as far as to say that since the big boom of The Walking Dead, this first portion of this movie was the most creative we’ve seen this sub-genre be. We have a cool setting, we have cool characters, and we even have some animation tossed in for good measure. There’s blood, there’s a fast paced, and there is just a feeling of freshness! Then we hit the second portion of the movie.

In the second portion of the movie, we have a time jump and that’s when things become just like the other zombie movies out there. We do have a group of people that are immune to the virus but outside of that, it’s more the same. Some people do horrible things in a very random way, and some characters kind of act pretty dumb when the movie seemed a lot smarter than that. Still, the movie is held up with lots of blood. If you love gore you get lots of gore here and that’s always a plus. So it becomes a mixed bag but it gets carried some characters that are here and some should have been here longer. And we get lots of red stuff to keep it entertaining. I still liked it, but it kind of hurt itself a little after the time jump. It might still manage to do enough good to keep it on some year-end lists.
