Contamination between zombesco and western horror, Jeff Barnaby's Blood Quantum tries the way of the eccentric and allegorical genre product, but remains halfway between ambition and convention, serving a lopsided and unbalanced narrative structure. At the Torino Film Festival for Horror Night.
The Red Crow Indian reservation is stormed by a sudden zombie epidemic, which infects humans and animals and pushes them to turn into hungry, angry and fierce beings. The epidemic only affects whites, while Native Americans are immune to it. In a short time the disease spreads, and it's up to the sheriff Traylor, and his family, to organize the resistance in order to give a future to mankind ... [synopsis]
From the more classic West, the clash between whites and Native Americans shifts to horror. Jeff Barnaby's Canadian Blood Quantum makes this eccentric and compelling mix first, allowing two very recurring conflicts in North American cinema to cross and collide: on the one hand the western battle for land between pioneers and natives, on the other the unstoppable seizure of power horror of hordes of zombies in the grip of a rampant epidemic of bites and devours of human bodies. In Blood Quantum the place of this renewed clash is an Indian reserve, where the sudden zombic epidemic that broke out among the whites causes continuous biting trespassing towards the territories occupied by the natives, which soon organize themselves to preserve a community of uncontaminated people and to give therefore a continuation to the human race.
On this material that contaminates different genres, Jeff Barnaby's script then completes a further reversal that makes the boundaries between good and bad, good and evil, quite indefinable. Because whites are the only ones in the grip of the zombes epidemic, they are hungry and violent, but at the same time the natives immune to the epidemic, barricaded in defense of mankind, adopt extremely violent and ruthless methods to keep themselves safe. Of course, the survival of oneself and the future of all humanity are at stake, so in such an open confrontation one cannot look too much for the subtle. Yet in the drawing of clear boundaries that separate one group from another, there also seems to be an evident willingly allegorical reference to the progressive closing of the current geopolitical borders that characterizes the most recent years on a broadly international level.
Barnaby, a native American filmmaker himself, seems in this sense to aim at allegorical horror, according to expressive keys that recall a recurrent classical system (almost always horror, if it does not have a real, conscious allegorical substrate, opens however towards conscious or unaware subtexts). By Barnaby's own admission, the theme of racism is rooted in the profound reasons of his film, and - in his own words - "there is no better figure than the zombie to represent a self-consuming culture". In essence, to the unstoppable hunger of the zombies of George A. Romero, images of a furious and furious consumerist capitalism tending to self-devour, here is a racist hunger of borders, of vital spaces, of territories to be removed from the expression of the other to annihilate him. , or to be clearly delimited to defend its alleged biological and cultural purity. The white exterminators of the West play a sort of second half, aiming at the completion of a tragic genocide to be further perfected. While, as the title suggests, blood must not become contaminated and is subject to ideal measurements, one step away from Aryan race suggestions.
In short, Barnaby's allegorical intent is stated and evident, but nevertheless remains halfway, without ever composing himself in a coherent and well-defined framework, traceable only to flashes such as recall and resonance. On the other hand, the taste for genre entertainment prevails, but here it clashes with a narrative macrostructure that is not particularly balanced. Blood Quantum indeed has a good debut in the very first sequence in which Gisigu, a native grandfather of few words, faces a group of riotous and immortal fish during a fishing trip. Barnaby recounts the rapid growth of the epidemic with an appreciable sense of anguish and fear, composing a handful of good sequences that combine jumpscare with an elegant splatter.
The film, however, accuses a sharp drop in narrative tension at the main turning point of the story (about a third of the way), when Barnaby makes the diegetic line jump six months to present a situation in which the uncontaminated are barricaded as human resistance while out there zombies dominate wildly. From here a long central section of story opens which does not add much to what has already been shown, and which also tries to screw itself into a series of relationships between the characters that are not particularly engaging. Recovering an additional canon from cinema of survival and human resistance, Barnaby gives primary narrative importance to the character of Charlie, a young pregnant woman who carries on her lap one of the probable future of humanity. Along this line Barnaby also tries some dramatic thrust, which however never reaches emotional involvement, too evidently harnessed by the use of conventions without particular and revitalizing originality.
Excessively stretched towards the conclusion, more than once Blood Quantum gives the sensation of coming to an end and of needlessly delaying the dissolution, resulting in a decidedly lopsided and out of control second part compared to the good premises of the debut. To aggravate everything, sporadic animated sequences decidedly out of place, real stylistic slips that give the measure of a confused and unconvinced operation of their potential, intervene. There remains a dignified packaging here and there, the appreciable use of the locations, and a substantially western spirit that gradually weakens the horror ambitions. There is a few heart dives, but it is actually left more to grandfather Gisigu's effective sword than to the demonic bites of the zombies. So overall Blood Quantum collects less than it sows, and reduces its ambitions towards a product of a willing genre, which evokes and does not close. And when he has to close, he then chooses the easiest and most easily melodramatic routes.
