18) Blood Quantum
Zombie movies may be the last kind of movie a pandemic ridden society may want to watch right now, but this was fun. Blood Quantum focuses on a zombie plague in the fiction First Nations reserve Red Crow, who, while they fight to survive, find out that only indigenous people are immune to the virus. Like all of the best zombie movies, Blood Quantum uses zombies to explore socio-political issues, in this case, relating to colonialization and racial tension. It’s not exactly subtle, but frankly, nothing in this movie is subtle. The film is a treat for any gore-hounds, with excellent practical effects and creative kills. Additionally, Blood Quantum features great performances all across the cast. Forrest Goodluck makes a compelling lead as Joseph and Michael Greyeyes as Traylor lends weight to his supporting role. However, my favorite performance is the insanely badass Stonehorse Lone Goeman as Gisigu, who deserves to be listed as one of the iconic badasses of horror from this movie. If we can’t have this movie in theaters, we should get this film in a drive-in; it was an incredibly fun watch, with some unique layers the deeper you dig.
