Storyline

Wacky, unrestrained, and with its own mystifying internal logic that cannot be entirely chalked up to the language barrier, this low-budget Turkish exploitation film from the 1973 is very weird, and both provide a very good time. THE DEATHLESS DEVIL introduces us to a young man (Kunt Tulgar) who discovers that he was adopted, and that his father was really a superhero named Copperhead. Like anyone who finds out such blood runs in his veins, he dons the Copperhead mask and goes into action. First on his list is the nefarious, mustached Dr. Satan, who has plans to steal technology that will let him control the world's robots and electronics. This technology belongs to a kindly professor and his pretty daughter, whose safety is now in Copperhead's hands. As he fights to bring the villain down, he finds time to enjoy the numerous Turkish beauties who disrobe for him. Written by emreevren

So horrible that it's wonderful!
6 September 2010 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is a terrifically fun film to watch because it is so gosh-darn awful! And, when I say awful, it's clearly MUCH worse than even the worst trash that Ed Wood, Jr. ever made! How is this possible?! I dunno--but it is truly awful in every way. But, as a bad movie buff, the film is so bad and so inept in every way, that I thoroughly loved every minute of it! Imagine taking some of the crazy movie serials of the 1930s and 40s (particularly "Spy Smasher") and combining it with the Mexican Lucha Libre (wrestling) films AND "The Aztec Mummy Against The Humanoid Robot"--and even making it worse! That is "The Deathless Devil" in a nutshell!

The film begins with a guy learning that his father was Copperhead--a masked crime fighter much like El Santo from Mexican cinema--though, unlike El Santo, this guy often does not wear the mask. In fact, at times he fights the baddies without the mask--making you wonder why he even bothered to use the mask in the first place! His mission is to stop the hilarious 'Dr. Satan'--a huge mustachioed baddie who spends every scene he's in laughing like a guy who's off his medication. Doc Satan is bent on doing bad things--with the help of an evil serum and strapped on bombs that make people his slaves as well as the silliest robot I have EVER seen! In fact, towards the end of the film, you can see the human arm of the guy inside the cardboard robot costume! In addition to this dumb plot, some 'comic relief' was included by inserting a cretin who dresses like Sherlock Holmes. To say he was an embarrassment to watch is an understatement, as he might just have been the most obnoxious and worst acting sidekick in film history! And, like the other Turkish pop film included on the DVD, there is nudity--which shocked me, as this was made in a Muslim nation--albeit a more liberal one! So here is what you get: terrible acting, a dumb script, horrible special effects, scenes that were clunkily put together (including fight scenes that were clearly fought in DIFFERENT locations in the SAME fight scene), music stolen from the Bond film "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" (though this hero was no George Lazenby....heck, he wasn't even good enough to be Marty Allen from "Last of the Secret Agents") and non-stop action. All these together make an awful film that is never dull--and might have you rolling on the floor with laughter.

Also, try watching the 24 minute documentary on the DVD about Turkish pop cinema. It's not great, but still lots of fun.
