The Best Can Liners, Drop Cloths and Tarps for the Messiest Zombies, Assassins and Psychopaths

"I used in excess of 40 gallons of fake blood, and never had one leak ...... I just wanted to say thank you."

- Jeremy Allen, Photographer

You’re watching a gruesome TV show. Somewhere between wanting to flip to HGTV and wanting to hurl, it hits your left brain like a meathook: who’s gonna clean that up?

Cinematic psychopaths leave behind a terrible mess; fictionalized assassins tend not to clean up after themselves; and horror movie cannibals have horrible table manners.

When professional photographer Jeremy Allen works on a cinematic photography project, he needs inexpensive drop cloths that absolutely will not fail.  After all, nobody wants to loose their security deposit over one drop of fake blood on the carpet.

And so a few years back, as he worried about protecting floors, walls, ceilings and carpets from more than 40 gallons of fake blood they planned on using through the shoot of his homegrown cannibal movie, Jeremy Allen turned to Paterson Poly.

"We had the walls covered, floor, and whatever else we could think of,” he explained. 

With their supply of Paterson Poly Drop Cloths, Jeremy and his film crew were able to protect the set, floor to ceiling, from copious amounts of blood and gore spilled through the course of movie. By the end of the shoot, Jeremy was proud to add: "No leaks!”

For his day job as a cinematic photographer, Jeremy continues to rely on Paterson Poly to keep his location shoots free of any blood or gore that might spill,

"Your plastic sheeting and tarps keep my white table white and my beige carpet beige.”

Recently, he used Paterson Poly to wrap a body in the film, "Retribution", catch fake blood in the movie Duality and even as a prop in the movie "Mr. Wilson". He’s on a roll.
