“Much stronger thematically than narratively, Blood Country is an interesting depiction of frontier life at a pivotal time in American history. It's beautiful to look at but doesn't shy away from the darkness,” said Jennie Kermode, writer for eyeforfilm.com.
Mills won the Hoka for Best Mississippi Feature at the February 2017 festival with his film: DON’T COME AROUND HERE.
