Some of the most iconic movie scenes may grosses you out - or left you chanting, ‘More! more!’
The use of blood on silver screen can be interpret in many ways. Is it an act of revenge? rebellion? brutality? or simply an act of a Psycho? For some, blood can be manipulated to be visually interesting such as the blood splatter on a delicate flower in Stoker. Or to create a sentiment to an object - such as the blood-covered polaroid in Battle Royale. Also, who can forget the iconic blood splashing on pretty prom queen Carrie? Like it or not, blood has been one of the most used key visual in the history of films, especially the bloody good ones!

What makes it so appealing to the audience?
"For actors, it’s a cinematic gift, a chance to play a characteristic as well as a character. For directors, it’s a chance to explore the psyche in visual and narrative detail. For audiences, it’s a window into a world they will (hopefully) never experience. When combined in the just the right way, without histrionics or spectacle, the results can be incredible." - Source
