In Herschell G. Lewis's COLOR ME BLOOD RED, a demented artist (Don Joseph) finds that his paintings sell better when he uses real human blood for his crimson pigments. Not wanting to use his own vital fluids, the artist begins killing his models and disemboweling them when his red paint supply runs low. This is the final film in Lewis's "Blood Trilogy' that began with BLOOD FEAST and TWO THOUSAND MANIACS!
Description by Image Entertainment:
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.
