    Color Me Blood Red
    The third film in cult director Herschell Gordon Lewis' infamous "Gore Trilogy," this overwrought horror film is one of many inferior derivations of Roger Corman's classic A Bucket of Blood (1959). Don Joseph stars as Adam Sorg, a pompous artist who discovers that human blood provides his paintings with just the right shade of red. The over-the-top splatter includes stabbings, slicings, and evisceration, with Sorg going so far as to squeeze blood from a victim's dangling intestine. Still, the film is not as grim as it sounds, due mainly to the shoddy effects and Lewis' flamboyant direction, which makes every action and line so hyperbolic that it crosses the line from horror into campy self-parody often and with wanton abandon. ~ Robert Firsching, Rovi
