Blood Red Sky – If you think Snakes in the Plane is crazy, How about Vampire in a plane?
Move over Lady Dimitrescu, There is a New Vampire Mommy in town but she is not as tall. She compensates it with her ferociousness against the men who will harm her son. The Netflix Original Blood Red Sky is a contemporary take on the Vampire folklore.
Blood Red Sky is about Nadja(Peri Baumeister), A German mother with a rare blood disease. She needs to go on a flight to the US because the treatment she needed is not locally available. joining her on the flight with her beloved 10-year-old son. They mean no harm, she just wants to go to America for treatment.
Meanwhile, A terrorist group lead by Berg (Dominic Purcell) attacks all the civilians inside the plane. He and his men even shot Nadja who tried to protect her son. That is their biggest mistake because it awakens her real condition. Nadja is a vampire and killing her just completed her transformation. She is not the Twilight kind of vampire. The harmless prey became beastly and merciless to all the people who caused her harm. The media had sexualized vampires for a long time, and seeing monster looking one is nostalgic and revitalizing at the same time.
Now it becomes a showdown between the terrorists and a mother who wants to protect her son and the survivors in the plane. The firearms of the terrorists vs. a woman scorned trying to protect everybody.
Usually Vampire are the villains in these kinds of movies but this time the audience will root for team Vampire. It is a refreshing idea to see a heroic vampire in a horror movie instead of a teen romance.
Blood Red Sky is coming to Netflix this July 23.
