    Fake Blood in B&W film

    What is a good off-the-counter liquid or combination of liquids that passes well as thick, black blood?
    Soy sauce is too runny and loses its darkness.

    Tomato sauce (catsup) with a little blue food coloring added to darken it?

    Reminds me of a John Prine song in which he asks the musical question, "Do you know what blood looks like in a black and white video?" and to which he answers, "Shadows!"
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    Now John Prine's music is far more important than Ari's post, a must Ari.

    Isn't the traditional movie product corn syrup with something to make it red?
    Using film since before it was hip.

    Thank you all.
    I guess you couldn't resist the thread title...
    Tom's quite comprehensive list, has chocolate syrup as suggested by Hitchcock,
    which sounds good!
    Plus my model will complain less than if I treated her like
    delicious BBQ meat...

    Chocolate syrup was what an old acquaintance used in his home-made b&w horror flicks. Looked pretty darned convincing to me!

    Alfred Hitchcock used Bosco Chocolate Syrup.... If you have seen any old Hitchcock movies the effect is very "Bloody"
