Will there be a Blood Red Sky 2?

Netflix are yet to announce whether a sequel for Blood Red Sky is in the works, perhaps unsurprisingly given the film has only just been released. However, it has been widely praised by fans and critics alike – so it's certainly a possibility.

The horror action movie has become what some critics hailed an "unexpected" success due to its Die Hard-esque action scenes along with an emotional storyline between a mother protecting her young son.

What happened in Blood Red Sky?

The first movie saw mother Nadja try to protect her young child from a hijacking terrorist on their plane – all the while trying to hide that she's a vampire.

In the closing scenes, we saw Nadja's son, Elias, blow up the aircraft with a teddy bear in an epic sacrifice of their lives in order to prevent the group of horrific passengers-turned-vampires escaping into society upon landing. 

However, the moment just before the explosion sees Nadja running towards her son – so her death is not confirmed. Could this be the perfect set up for a sequel?
