Blood Red Sky (2021) – Review

A group of armed and dangerous terrorists hijack a transatlantic plane heading to the United States from Europe, but unbeknownst to them, a woman suffering from a mysterious illness is also on the flight and is quickly called into action to try and prevent the deaths of everyone onboard. Not the worst way to spend an evening, especially considering some of the newer material released lately on our streaming services. It’s also worth noting that Blood Red Sky is currently available to watch on Netflix.

The Seventh Day (2021) – Review

Father Peter (Guy Pearce) a well renowned exorcist teams up with a rookie priest called Father Daniel (Vadhir Derbez) and the pair delve deep into a case surrounding the death of an American family. As they plunge deeper into the mystery surrounding the deaths, the lines between good and evil begin to blur and each of their own inner demons begin to appear. The Seventh Day provides one or two scary moments of suspense, along with a half decent story, but it’s fair to say that the film doesn’t hold too much rewatch value.

Body Brokers (2021) – Review

Utah (Jack Kilmer) is a young man, invited to Los Angeles for treatment to correct his long-running issues with drug abuse. The recovering addict quickly learns that the rehab center he was introduced to, is not all about helping people at all, but mainly a cover for a multi-million-dollar operation that includes addicts recruiting other addicts that they know of. An insightful movie, more than worth the watch, but at the same time, probably not one with much kind of rewatch value.

Stowaway (2021) – Review

The highly trained crew of a spacecraft headed to Mars on a dangerous two-year mission, quickly learn that an accidental stowaway is also onboard with them, twelve-hours after takeoff. The crew are too far away from Earth to return to base, and with their own resources diminishing by the day, questions begin to arise regarding how each of the four people will finish the mission safely. Not quite as good as I had hoped and certainly not on the level of similar releases in the same genre, but watchable on the whole.
