Another nasty Paul Naschy classic, Crimson, is on its way to Blu-ray and DVD from Kino Lorber, and we have your details dripping wet and messy!
In stores on June 14th, Crimson is directed by Juan Fortuny and stars Naschy, Silvia Solar, Olivier Mathot, Evelyne Scott, Victor Israel, Roberto Mauri, and Claude Boisson.
Eurocult icon Paul Naschy (Frankenstein’s Bloody Terror) stars as a criminal gang leader who undergoes a radical surgery in Juan Fortuny’s 1973 thriller CRIMSON. When a jewel heist goes awry, Jack Surnett (Naschy) and his fellow thieves take shelter at the home of a scientist experimenting in brain replacement. Through the surgical finesse of the doctor’s wife (Silvia Solar), Surnett is restored to health but suffers irresistible pangs of bloodlust–and conventional lust as well–after the brain of a criminal known as “The Sadist” (Roberto Mauri) is grafted onto his own. This Redemption Edition includes both the U.S. release version (English dubbed) as well as the extended international version (French with optional English subtitles), which features additional (sexually provocative) footage.
