Bei Transplantationen wird ein Teil der Persönlichkeit des Spenders auf den Empfänger übertragen, und im Horrorfilm ist der Spender sehr oft ein wahnsinniger Verbrecher. In Robert Wienes "Orlacs Hände" lassen die Hände eines Mörders einen bedeutsamen Pianisten, dessen eigene Hände bei einem Zugunglück zerschmettert wurden, selbst zum Mörder werden. (Edmond T.Grevilles Remake aus dem Jahre 1960 löste die Geschichte positiver auf-der vermeintliche Verbrecher war unschuldig zum Tode verurteilt worden und alles war lediglich Einbildung) "Der Phantastische Film" von Rolf Giesen, Ebersberg 1983 Quelle: http://portal.addcom.de
