All in all, Blood Red Sky was an interesting addition to the vampire genre. I hope this will inspire the same level of suspense for future offerings. You can always have more tricks up your sleeve even if you are working with an time-worn trope like vampires.
After fearing the zombies for the better part of two seasons of Kingdom, Ashin of the North made me want to root for them somewhat because of this special episode. As usual, I was blown away by everything, from the production, to the story (Kim Eun Hee), to the masterful direction (Kim Seong Hoon) — and to think this was shot during a pandemic. Amazing. The level of badassery in this installment was nothing short of masterful. Bravo! Well done, Netflix!
