Color Me Blood Red
Director: Herschell Gordon Lewis
Year Released: 1965
Not happy with being unable to find the "perfect red" for his paintings, artist Adam Sorg (Gordon Oas-Heim) - who is decidedly not Gauguin - realizes human blood provides just the right hue, so he starts killing people and draining their precious bodily fluids. Compared to Lewis' other films this is tame and very drawn out - it takes a full half hour for someone to get a knife in the neck - with Oas-Heim (billed as Don Joseph) hamming it up the entire time. Didn't anyone think to mention to Lewis that blood dries brownish-black?
