The layer blend mode "color" isn't working properly. Blending red or cyan creates gray. Blending other colors create the wrong color. See this video. This has been tested on several Windows systems and all have the same results. It has been tested on several mac systems and none of the Macs have the issue.

We have confirmed the issue and we apologize for the inconvenience; we will be addressing the color blending mode issue it in a soon-to-be-released update; https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/known-issues.html.

As recommended above, checking the "Legacy Compositing" option is the best workaround for the time being.
