Mike’s Review: Blood Quantum (2020)

Mike’s Review: Blood Quantum (2020)

★★★★ out of ★★★★★ Much of the history of native peoples in horror film, or in this case Canada’s First Nation people, has been beset by misunderstandings, skepticism about tribal rituals, and outright racism. These troubling portrayals throughout horror’s uneven relationship with non-Euro traditions has manifested itself in a series of clumsy attempts to capture the native condition. This, in turn, has played out with mysterious and prescient shamans, strange and incomplete tribal rites, and silly depictions of day-to-day tribal life. That was the case until 2020, with the release of the superb Blood Quantum.

★★ out of ★★★★★
Ok, I gotta get something off my chest.  I saw the trailer for this beauty back in 1985 and was so horrified by its content I could have sworn that I’d seen the whole film — front to back.  This was some seriously dense scar tissue built up over the years.  But alas, I’d never seen this flic.  That was, until a couple weeks ago.
