Editorial Reviews

Horror legend Paul Naschy (Werewolf Shadow, School Killer) stars in this outrageous combination of medical horror, heist action, and dark eroticism. After a jewel robbery goes horribly wrong and their leader, Jack (Naschy), is shot in the head, a band of thieves goes to a local doctor for help. To save their friend's life, the criminals devise a unique solution: kill their psychopathic worst enemy, toss his body onto a railroad track in front of an oncoming train, and use the severed head for a brain transplant! Unfortunately the unwilling donor, the Sadist, turns Jack into a raging lunatic bent on murder and destruction! A wild Eurocult oddity from the swinging '70s featuring a funky score by Jess Franco composer Daniel White (Female Vampire), "Crimson" has been newly remastered from the original negative.

Being a huge fan of Mr. Werewolf himself, the great Spanish actor Paul NASCHY, I really wanted to like this one, particularly as I had read favorable reviews of this DVD before purchasing it. But alas, it was a disappointment.

Paul NASCHY is the leader of a bunch of gangsters, who break into a jewelery store. Since these gangsters are not the brightest, they manage to set off the alarm and are forced to flee. As the gangsters are driving around a police roadblock, the cops open fire and hit NASCHY in the head, who promptly gets comatose. In their hideout, the gangsters decide to get help from a down-on-his-heels doctor. This general practioner of course meets the job requirements for doctors who cure baddies in movies (i.e. he is an incompetent drunkard). When sober, the doc suggests to ask one of his colleagues (who experiments with brain transplants) for help. On they go and after a little "persuasion" the professor agrees to help them. He suggests to conduct a brain transplant on the unlucky NASCHY. Now where do they find an organ donor? It is agreed upon to kill the gangster's archenemy, the aptly named mobster "Sadist"...After the hapless unvoluntary organ donor loses life and brain, the operation is conducted in the professor's basement (!). But while NASCHY very slowly recuperates, the Sadist's men are closing in on the gang, and to make matters even worse, there are unexpected side effects to the treatment...

Now really, I'm not making this up! As you my brief synopsis indicates, this FRANKENSTEIN inspired yarn (the brain transplant) is not exactly what mainstream film critics will rave about. But while CRIMSON could easily have been a trash-fest for the Eurocult movie fan (like most other movies starring the great Paul NASCHY) this one is really a stinker.

Criminals who rob banks should never try a risky brain transplant from a SADIST. If they get injured, especially a brain injury, they should just pack it in. If they decide to get an experimental brain surgeon to perform the operation then the new brain might not take and then you've just got a randy maniac killing machine on your hands. Lock up the surgeon's wife and any european women that get within a mile of this freak even with bandages still on his head. Eroto-cephalic pandemonium.

This film is a not atypical Naschy exercise in Euro-horror. As such you may feel you have seen it all before (which may also make you happy). However the DVD suffers from having all the nudity crammed into the extras section- leaving the original feeling expurgated. Odd way to do this- which makes me want to await an uncut full run version of this movie.

I just want to add, for anyone who might stumble upon this, that in the extras for this dvd, there is a black-out occurring about 8 minutes into the bonus footage, and it lasts several minutes. I wrote Image to see if this was a defect on my personal copy, and they responded that this defect was apparent in the original negative source, and therefore is present on every copy of the dvd. I've asked other persons who own this dvd if their copies possess the same defect, but no one ever responds, so keep that in mind. It is doubtful that another release of this film will ever come to fruition, so its hardly a complaint, but it just happens to occur in a pivotal scene involving the most interesting character in the movie. Why then, was this segment even included??
