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.

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.Read more ›

A great movie from the master of gore H.G. Lewis. A fun and campy movie with lots of blood and gore.Published on April 7, 2010 by Horrorzilla
