I absolutely LOVE when someone comes out with a unique take on the vampire. The archetype has been around for literally 100’s of years in literature and was literally the subject of one of the first films to gain popularity, so to be able to provide a fresh take is something special. Blood Red Sky doesn’t reinvent the mythos, but it’s definitely a unique and intriguing situation. What if instead of being Wesley Snipes playing a Sky Marshall in Passenger 57, he was playing Blade? It would suck to be those terrorists, I can tell you that much. Nadja has a mysterious disease and is traveling from Germany to New York with her son to see a doctor that can help her. Unfortunately the plane is hijacked and Nadja is shot dead trying to protect her son….and then she wakes up. That mysterious disease? Vampirism.
Can you seriously tell me that’s not a cool plot? Adding in Dominic Purcell as the lead terrorist is just a cherry on top.
Check out the trailer below and look for Blood Red Sky July 23rd, 2021 on Netflix!
Nadja and her ten-year-old son are on an overnight flight from Germany to New York when a group of terrorists violently take control of the plane and threaten the lives of the passengers. Suddenly Nadja faces an impossible choice – should she reveal her dark side and the inner monster she has kept hidden from her son for years in order to save him? The hunters become the hunted in this action-horror from director Peter Thorwarth, starring Peri Baumeister and Dominic Purcell.
