This week on End Credits, it’s time to get dead again! Just in time for the unofficial start of summer, we’ll review the new socially conscious zombie hit Blood Quantum, and, before that, we’ll finish up the list of the Top 40 Comic Book Movies of the Last 40 Years. Yup, this one’s going to be a nerdy episode.
This Wednesday, May 20, at 2 pm, Adam A. Donaldson and Candice Lepage will discuss:
The Top 40 Comic Book Movies of the Last 40 years PART 4. In 1978, Superman the Movie was released in theatres everywhere, and since then everyone’s chased that big box office money from superhero movies. For the next four weeks, we’re going to countdown the 40 greatest of the genre in the last 40 (or make that 42 years). This week, we’re doing 1 to 10.
REVIEW: Blood Quantum (2020). The toast of the Toronto International Film Festival’s Midnight Madness program last year is now available on VOD. Just another zombie movie? Hardly. Filmmaker Jeff Barnaby supposes an outbreak of undead near a community of First Nations people, but the gimmick is that Indigenous people seem unaffected by zombie bites. Like all great zombie movies, this one’s got a social message, but does Blood Quantum stand with the best of the living dead?
End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesday at 2 pm.
