The premise of ‘Blood Red Sky’ Netflix sounds very interesting on paper. A German horror film about a woman with “a mysterious illness” who is forced to act when a group of terrorists tries to hijack a night transatlantic flight. To protect his son he will have to reveal a dark secret, and unleash his inner monster, which has been a vampire. Promises an odyssey during a night trip full of blood and action.
However, Peter Thorwarth, director of the famous’Wave‘(The Wave, 2008), does not quite get the most out of the proposal and seems to be dodging some key points so that a work with a limited concept manages to create the necessary traction to reach the goal without staggering. The idea is a kind of hybrid between ‘Passenger 57’ (Passenger 57, 1992) and the end of ’30 days of darkness‘(30 Days of Night, 2007), an action thriller in the sky to which we have added a touch of fantasy and horror, without necessarily pulling the humor of’ Serpents on the plane ‘(2007).
