Best Turkish Cult Movie
26 February 2001 | by (The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This is the best cult movie that I have ever seen.

If you watch a cult movie you don't need to think about the movie, you can just watch it.

First of all I saw two versions of this movie. First version is about 90 minutes and the other one is about 115 minutes. The story is simple but perfect for a cult movie: The earth divides in to meteors after a nuclear war. Now Cuneyt Arkin and his friend Aytekin Akkaya has to fight against unknown enemy (the man with wooden prickles on his head!!!) who is looking for human brains!!! He will use them to destroy the human kind.

With a small budget, director Cetin Inanc (Turkish cult movie director) tried to make a movie, which can race with American SF movies. He had no chance to win this race but he already knew that. He borrowed some pictures and soundtracks from famous American movies like Starwars etc.

When I had an interview with Cetin Inanc he told me that they did this movie for a prestige. They wanted to show everyone that they also can make a SF movie in Turkey. At the end of the interview he said to me: `If someone can make better one than this, he has to attempted for !'

I liked this movie. It is amazing and funny. You don't need to use your brains to watch this movie. You can just watch and enjoy it! I recommend it to every cult movie fan. The performance of Cuneyt Arkin (George Arkin) is wonderful. If you cannot find this movie just look it in Europe. It is available in Germany. For another questions about this movie you can send me a mail. I will try to answer your question.

If you like this Turkish cult movie try than also Turist Omer Uzay Yolunda ` Tourist Omer: Star Trek'.
