Blood Red Sky Ending Explained
The character of Nadja gives the thriller a supernatural twist. She takes out the hijackers one by one by biting Karl, Curtis, Eightball to death. After biting Eightball, he becomes a vampire too. Nadja becomes fragile due to her condition. When Elias rushes to save his mother, Eightball comes to infect him. But Elias somehow rescues himself by opening the airplane hatch and throws him into the air. In order to help his mother, Elias attempts to cut his hand so that she can drink his blood. Nadja becomes mobile. This shows the relationship between a mother and a son. A good level of self-reliance from the kid, Elias has been seen in the movie.
Well, now what? Is Nadja dead? Elias catches a glimpse of his mother, busy sucking blood from an army officer. Elias blows up the plane. It seems like Nadja is dead but her vampiric predisposition rules her death out. Nadja should have already been dead when Eightball shot her. But she unleashes mayhem instead. Fire is an effective repellant against vampires. After the explosion, Nadja being dead is more likely than being alive.
There is another character too. It’s Farrid, played by Kais Setti. Elias meets him at the airport and realizes he is a good person. But there lies a twist in the story. You have to watch the film in order to understand the climax. The whole blame is put on Farrid as an Islamic attack. He gets injured gravely but still gets arrested as ordered. On the other hand, Elias jumps off a running ambulance to save Farrid. He hears the voice of Elias and comes back. Farrid embraces the kid and the Colonel asks his men to let him go. So, Farrid doesn’t get arrested.
Now, what’s next? Stop dawdling and watch the movie. I’m sure you won’t regret it.
