Brian Tallerico The sense of surprise or playfulness that you would think is inherent in a 'Bats on a Plane' concept just isn't here. Rated: 1.5/4 Jul 23, 2021 Full Review Randy Myers San Jose Mercury News Director/co-writer Peter Thorwarth splatters the screen with gore while tossing in surprises, delirious preposterousness and even a few touching moments. It's grand fun. Rated: 3/4 Jul 22, 2021 Full Review David Ehrlich indieWire It's an intriguing dilemma - one that a better film would have done more to contrast against the hijackers' craven inhumanity - but "Blood Red Sky" fails to coagulate that conflict into action. Rated: C- Jul 20, 2021 Full Review Aaron Phillips But Why Tho? A Geek Community Blood Red Sky is itself a fantastic premise that starts off really well but sadly hits too many obstacles along the way to make a great story. Rated: 6.5/10 Jan 16, 2023 Full Review Jessica Scott Film Cred It may draw from obvious influences, but it is its own movie, standing alone as a suspenseful, moving, and surprising film from start to finish. Dec 22, 2022 Full Review Jonathan DeHaan Nightmare on Film Street Blood Red Sky is a victim of its own pacing but it still delivers everything you're looking for in a good vampire movie (not to mention a good heist movie) Rated: 6/10 Aug 25, 2021 Full Review Read all reviews

Justin T I hate films that start with the ending because the start is boring, the timeline jumps around quite a lot throughout and I get that it’s needed to reveal the story more dramatically but here it doesn’t fit the story and feels disjointed. It reminded me a lot of From Dusk Till Dawn (1996) but without the great characters and pacing. Virtually the whole film takes place on an aeroplane and they don’t have the story or characters to support this. It is often slow. The film is well made but that just isn’t enough when you don’t have a concept that can support the production. Forgettable and ultimately not really worth watching but not terrible. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 07/02/24 Full Review Audience Member Man, this had a chance to be awesome. Cool idea. Kind of like Dusk Till Dawn in the sense that it starts as a one type of movie and ends as another. Just kind of predictable and some bad acting. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 06/02/24 Full Review Bruno S A estrutura em flashback, com o filme começando quase pelo final, e mostrando sua construção até chegar nesse ponto pata concluir, já é bem datada, e o tocante ao terror é bem clichê, porém o filme entrega boas atuações, algumas cenas emocionantes, e uma história convincente, ou boa, se preferir essa palavra... Assistiria mais de uma vez tranquilamente, apesar de não ser perfeito, caiu no meu gosto! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/24 Full Review Tina K I liked it. A strangely moving and action-packed story of the undead in a confined space. Don't mess with her kid! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/11/24 Full Review David W A genuinely brilliant take on the vampire genre. Action-packed, gory, and incredibly tragic. Like "Let the Right One In", tt should be short-listed on anyone's top pick of vampire films. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/27/24 Full Review Tarek F To be fair, it's not a bad movie. I usually follow the audience score and ignore the critics. However, this time I must confess the critics were fair, this movie deserves a 70%. I'm pretty sure people got mad at the movie due to the killing of two dogs, which was totally uncalled for Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/15/24 Full Review Read all reviews
