What is it about the colour red in movies? It’s everywhere. Red for blood, or a wound …
Like the red plastic mac worn by a dead little girl in the opening scene of director Nicolas Roeg's 1973 movie classic of the English supernatural, Don’t Look Now (above). Based on the short story by Daphne Du Maurier, this mac is what she’s wearing when she drowns in the pond of her parents' English country home. Her art historian father, John, later takes his grieving wife Laura away for a healing trip to Venice (of all the ironic waterlogged places), having accepted a commission to restore a church building.
Red also figures in the 2006 Omen remake, Schindler’s List, Rebel without a Cause, Red Shoes, Flatliners, Red Riding Hood and soon in Submarine (with Yasmin Paige, below)
