Definite Laughs From The Third in the Blood Trilogy, 27 June 2006
Author: CMRKeyboadist from Sleesburg, VA.

Hershell Gordan Lewis, you all should know him from his cult classics like "Blood Feast", "2000 Maniacs!", "Wizard of Gore", "Blood Feast 2", etc. "Color Me Blood Red" is the third installment in his notorious "Blood Trilogy" series and holds its own as a genre favorite. Although, this movie has nothing to do with the other two films (not like 2000 Maniacs! has anything to do with Blood Feast) it is still a lot of fun.

The story opens with a disgruntled artist who isn't getting enough respect from the local art critic. His girlfriend is quite annoying and after she nicks her finger on a nail and gets blood all over a painting the artist gets the idea to start cutting his fingers and painting with the blood. After draining as much blood as he can from himself, he murders his girlfriend by stabbing her in the head and then wiping the blood all over the picture he has been working on. He then brings the picture to the local critic who believes it to be the best piece of art since Picasso. Having such success, the crazed artist wants to make more work in the same fashion. Can you guess what happens from there?

This was a fun flick. Although, it wasn't Gordan's most disgusting movie it still has certain moments that are cringe-worthy. Look for a scene in which the artist is squeezing blood out from a woman's intestines. Pretty gruesome for the time. 7/10
