* Averted in ''ForeverKnight'', which used a fruit drink named Ribena, which is the right color red and *extremely* sweet.

* 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.

* If you happen to run into any of the non-Creator/BruceCampbell actors from the original ''Franchise/EvilDead'', do not mention fake blood unless you're prepared for a [[TheVietnamWar Vietnam]]-like flashback. The amounts of fake blood used and the very, ''very'' sugary recipe (which Bruce Campbell actually gives and recommends in his autobiography) combined to leave every actor caked in unbearably sticky red mess at the end of every damn day of shooting. Also don't mention contact lenses, for mostly the same reason (those white things ''hurt like a bitch'').

* ''Film/TheShining'', anyone?
** Whatever was used in the elevator sequence was significantly more watery than Kensington Gore. The sheer quantity of it, though, was certainly impressive...
* Creator/TimBurton's ''Film/SleepyHollow'' uses a very similar-looking kind of blood, mostly as an homage to the Hammer movies, but also for artistic purposes.
** Not to mention the oceanic amounts of orange-ish stage blood used in ''Film/SweeneyToddTheDemonBarberOfFleetStreet'', also a Hammer tribute.
*** It should be noted that in both films, Burton digitally desaturated the color blue so that everything had a distinctly grey cast to it and, in Sleepy Hollow, enhanced the color red so that it would stand out more.

* 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.
