Hello, just installed statler on another machine, and tried to install fuse(zx spectrum emulator), but can't find it using synaptic as well as apt-get. Is possible to access the debian repositories from crunchbang, even if they are the unstable ones?. On the home page of the autor, it states that fuse is on the debian repositories.
Yes, you can pin to any of the debian repositories to get an application
Although, you're you may be asking for trouble encounter borkage mixing stable, testing, unstable, or experimental packages. As they say on the Debian site, go ahead but if anything breaks, you get to pick up the pieces and we get to laugh at you.

^ Correct answer.
@OP: Yes, take Waldorf, it contains fuse from the Wheezy repos. Statler, based on Squeeze, will get oldstable in the next couple of weeks. Saves you the trouble of pinning packages and mixing repos.
