Alternate names: Blood splatter, Ichor splatter

Often the visual effect is bucketfuls of blood or similar substance flying about in quantities the wounded creature could've never have contained, or especially have survived so long after losing so much of it.

If you were looking for something comparable to the splatter film genre, you should look at the blood & gore tag.
