Editorial Reviews

The newest trend in art is type O negative! When his girlfriend, Gigi, cuts her finger on a frame, maniacal artist Adam Sorg (Don Joseph) discovers a new shade of crimson that will make his artwork so special-human blood! Squeezing all he can out of his sliced-up fingers, Adam then stabs Gigi in the head, smears her face on a canvas and-voila-a macabre masterpiece is created. After his bloody new painting causes a sensation on the local art scene, a crazed Adam continues creating sanguine specialties by extracting art supplies from victims outside his beach house. It all goes bad, however, when he zeros in on April (Candi Conder) whose scarlet pigment he plans to remove with an axe.

Customer Reviews

Due to the poor nature of the film there are some entertaining moments, but for the most part it's just boring.
Dave. K
I felt a bit down in the dumps after watching "Color Me Blood Red" because it was my last Lewis gore film.
Jeffrey Leach
Unless you are a H.G.L. fan or you just want to see some plain gore, this movie isn't really good for much else.

1965's "Color Me Blood Red" is another slice of sickening cinema by H.G. Lewis, the Godfather of Gore. Released one year after "Two Thousand Maniacs," this film takes place on the sunny beaches of Sarasota, Florida. Actor Don Joseph stars as Adam Sorg, a blunt and frustrated artist who enjoys making rude comments toward any critic who analyzes his work. Although savvy collectors at Farsworth Galleries are anxious to purchase his abstract paintings, Adam indignantly refuses to sell them. Isolated in his studio, he has a great deal of trouble trying to concoct the best color scheme. Later, when his nagging girlfriend Gigi (Ellen Warner) cuts herself on a jutting canvas nail, Adam is instantly enamored at how blood emits the most brilliant shade of red. Immediately, he attempts to cover an entire canvas with his own hemoglobin; slicing open his hands with a razor blade, he feverishly smears his own bleeding digits onto a nude portrait, frantically squeezing the wounds before they clot. However, as he became dizzy and lightheaded, it doesn't take him long to realize that to finish his masterpiece, he would have to bleed himself dry. So, what does he do instead? As Gigi assails him with yet another tongue-lashing, Adam stabs her in the cranium with a palette knife! Then, in perhaps the most morbid example of artistic expression, he holds up Gigi's limp corpse and wipes her face on the picture, using her head as a giagantic brush! Eventually, his first ghastly painting is complete; we as an audience get to see it as a grisly representation of Adam's obsession with blood. When the critics at Farsworth Galleries see this work, they are instantly astounded and expect Adam to create more pieces with the same style. Buyers offer the upcoming artist up to $15,000.Read more ›

COLOR ME BLOOD RED

** Out of 5

Release Date- October 13th, 1965

Running Time- 78-Minutes

Rating- NR

Writer/Director- Herschell Gordon Lewis

Starring- Don Joseph, Candi Conder, Elyn Warner, Pat Lee, Jerome Eden

Released in 1965, Color Me Blood Red is considered by many fans of H.G. Lewis to be one of his weaker films and to be honest it's kind of hard to argue against that. When one watches a movie by Herschell Gordon Lewis you should know what to expect and Color Me Blood Red has pretty much all the elements that made H.G. Lewis a cult favorite, but those elements don't work nearly as well as his movie that came before and after this.

The screenplay was written by H.G. Lewis and overall the script is rather pathetic; the characters like expected are poorly developed, but going into the movie that was sort of expected, but the characters were really annoying. For me the characters are among the worst I've ever seen in a movie. All of them were either boring or annoying and in some cases both. Nobody goes into an HG Lewis for the characters, but it's as if he wasn't even trying.

As director Herschell Gordon Lewis doesn't fair any better. Color Me Blood Red is very poorly paced and almost always boring. Due to the poor nature of the film there are some entertaining moments, but for the most part it's just boring. There are only 4 death scenes and Color Me Blood Red needed a lot more than that the movie only runs at 78-minutes, but it felt a lot longer and it seemed like forever in-between death scenes. The gore was alright, but in the end it didn't make up for everything else.

Of Lewis' Blood Trilogy, this is definitely the least bloody. That's not to say it's not an entertaining movie(hence the four stars) though. The now not-so-original plot of an artist murdering folks for his art is the basis of the movie. An arrogant schmuck of a painter discovers that missing ingredient for the color of his paintings.......blood of course(assuming the title didn't give that one away). After nearly bleeding to death cutting his fingers, artist Adam Sorg resorts to murdering his girlfriend, and then just about anybody who winds up on his beach front property. This is intercut with some groovy teenagers partying down on the beach. All the Lewis trademarks are there, but as stated before, a lack of gore for a gore film. That shouldn't discourage Lewis fans though, coz it's never boring. Strangely enough, one of the most disturbing scenes uses probably the simplest of fx gags. It makes you cringe a tad seeing Sorg squeezing blood from his fingertips and furiously painting the canvas with it. Fun stuff and certainly worth your time.

An artist named Adam Sorg (Don Joseph) is a troubled painter who can't seem to make anything be perfect without an artistic idea, yet one day when his girlfriend cuts her finger as he uses a little bit of the blood it gives him an idea that blood on the painting is the answer. He even cuts his own hands for the paint yet needs something better for it such as murdering some people then using their blood as additional paint for his art to become a success.

A very weak final installment of Herschell Gordon Lewis's legendary "blood trilogy" which began with "Blood Feast" then with "Two Thousand Maniacs" and this one. It does have little gore to it mainly intestines ripped out to be squeezed for blood but still the story is decent at best and yet the acting is quite funny. This has been done better on Roger Corman's "Bucket of Blood" which obviously this movie is a knock-off of no doubt.

This DVD contains commentary, trailer, outtakes and gallery of exploitation art.
