Trivia

Along with the scenes culled from Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977), the scenes where the Wizard character's wife/Queen is changed into an old hag then a spider, the swirling yellow vortex that turns men into burnt, shambling zombies, and another character turns into a werewolf (actually a hairy ogre) are all taken from Bert I. Gordon's The Magic Sword (1962). Any fan of TV's "Mystery Science Theater 3000" (ep. #411) will recognize the scenes immediately. See more »

Quotes

Bilgin: The Wizard touched the sword and the brain. At last what he wanted happened. Now he has the power to destroy the Earth. Save the world. Save the world! *Save the world!*

All that LSD finally made my brain melt

There were times when I was watching this film that I wondered, What must it have been like for the intended audiences when they first saw this nearly twenty years ago? did they rise up and hunt down the people who made this astoundingly derivative, shamelessly inept piece of camel dung and string them up from the nearest lamppost - or did it win the Turkish equivalent of the Oscar (the Osman?) for Best Picture? Still, I can't deny that it has certain charms. In fact, it's been a long time since I have laughed quite so hard at a bad movie that wasn't on Mystery Science Theater 3000. If you can find this one (and you might have some trouble - I had to get it from a guy in West Virginia and the print I saw was in Turkish only), rent it and watch it with a living room full of 'Star Wars' fans, liberally lubricated with a case of cheap beer. The finale must be seen to be believed.
