* When ''Series/SixtyMinutes'' profiled drive-in movie mogul Earl Owensby, film techies were shown using Karo syrup and other ingredients to make this mixture.



* Used in the violent episodes of ''[[Creator/AdultSwim Saul Of The Molemen]]''. ''[[LudicrousGibs Extensively]]''.
* Averted in ''Series/ForeverKnight'', which used a fruit drink named Ribena, which is the right color red and *extremely* sweet.



* In one episode of ''Series/FaceOff'' the contestants had to mix up Kensington Gore and create a crime scene that was then critiqued by an actual retired homicide detective. Some of them used [[OverdrawnAtTheBloodBank way too much.]]
* Opera Colorado's "Catch Us in the Act" advertising campaign included a boast of having five recipes for blood. These included a peanut butter base for battlefield gore, a liquid laundry detergent base for blood on clothing, and a baby shampoo base used when there was a risk of the "blood" getting into the actor's eyes.

Punningly named after a street in London, this is a name for fake blood, especially the sticky, edible sort in old British horror films. {{Everything2}} gives the recipe as:

* The original ''Film/DawnOfTheDead'' uses an extremely bright, opaque fake blood made from sugar cane syrup, peanut butter, and food coloring. Director George Romero loved it because he felt it matched the film's comic book atmosphere perfectly, while special effects supervisor Tom Savini hated it because he prefers things to look more realistic.
* Some of the older {{Godzilla}} films, particularly ''Film/GodzillaVsGigan'' and ''Film/GodzillaVsMechagodzilla'', feature gallons of bright orangish-red blood being sprayed out of the monster suits during battles. The competing {{Gamera}} films of the same era feature sometime similar, along with some [[BlackBlood green and blue blood]].
* The films of Herschell Gordon Lewis, the "Godfather of Gore" responsible for cult classics like ''BloodFeast'' and ''TwoThousandManiacs'', feature blood so bright and thick it could pass as paint. Lewis had it made to order from a local chemist, and reached a point where he labeled his films as "two-gallon pictures" or "three-gallon pictures" based on how much he had to call in for.

The blood is sticky, thick and bright red (crimson in fact). The original Kensington Gore was a specific brand of proprietary stage blood manufactured by retired pharmacist John Tynegate in the '60s and '70s. It can be seen in a lot of old horror films, especially the HammerHorror series.

* Creator/JamesRolfe has commented on his long history with (blatantly) fake blood, which has ranged from ketchup to Kool-aid to the traditional corn syrup mixture. ''Red Zombie'' and ''The Deader The Better'' in particular are full of cheesy, bright red blood effects.
