How To Make Authentic Horror Movie Blood

If you want fake blood done right, you’ve got to turn to the professionals. And I’m pretty sure the “I wish this blood were real/yours” look in this man’s eyes qualifies him as professional.

He’s actually BBC presenter Mark Gatiss, host of a series called A History of Horror. And the goop he mixes up, called Kensington Gore, is just the type of hyperbolic hemoglobin that helps your “slutty [whatever] ” costume cross over into “creepy slutty [whatever] ” territory. Here’s the ingredient list:

2 cups of Golden Syrup

1 cup of Water

10 teaspoons of Red food colouring

A few drops of Blue food colouring

A few drops of Yellow food colouring

10 tablespoons of Corn Flour

Mint flavouring—to taste

Which, you may have noticed, means that it’s also 100% edible. Freak. [Buzzfeed]
