    I had a feeling you would do a Turkish film, I was expecting you to do the dead don’t die from 1970, but this is a good contender

    Awesome Monster Madness episode and just a heads up, Şeytan is pronounced as “Shay-taan”. Overall, it’s nice to see Turkey (Türkiye) getting recognition for horror films.

    It would’ve been great to see them try and recreate the spider-walk scene (though it wasn’t shown theatrically until 2000).

    Okay, it finally let me watch it.. Wow.. Really Turkey!? That’s some shameless rip off shit right there lol. Another awesome video though. Keep up the good work James (and crew.) I’m a huge horror fan (old and new.) You guys never cease to entertain. Thank you for all your hard work.

    They’ve also made a Turkish version of “I Spit On Your Grave”, which is called “Intikam kadini” (1979). They seem to have remade absolutely everything! 😀

    This film is horrible, I watched it on Christmas Day 2019 and holy hell it was awful, I think I spotted a zoom in or out in every single scene, sometimes there was a zoom in and out in the same scene, everything was sub standard about this film.

    Everything I’ve heard about Turkey makes me think it’s a horrible place. All these blatant rip-offs just proves it. Then again, India did make their own version of Nightmare on Elm Street…

    When it comes to turkish horror movies, make sure to check out ‘Baskin’, maybe it´s up your alley.

    Careful with Turkish “dubs”. From what I saw when I was there, their idea of dubbing is having one person do all the voice over the actual movie playing, so you hear 2 voices all the time. Sometimes they splash out and pay for a 2nd voice actor, it may or may not be a woman.

    I wonder if there was some backlash from Turkish people to not see foreign english films and that is why there are so many rip offs. I mean it feels that way when they rip off The Exorcist the following year. Nowadays they make a lot of soap operas that are pretty interesting thou.

    At the time Turkey (until early 80s) had some kind of economical & political system closer to communism (we had state controlled economy). Even carrying foreign currency like dollar banknotes were illegal and you could end up in jail for that.Since this system was ruining economy, It was harder to get movies to Turkish cinemas so what they did is basically remaking all hollywood blockbusters for Turkish audience.Şeytan was screened before the original Exorcist.

    The Turkish version of the theme sounds better than that remix.
