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

One of the goofiest films ever made
12 February 2006 | by (Worcester, MA) – See all my reviews

While not as epic as the legendary "Turkish Star Wars", this Turkish production stills offers lots of campy and surreal fun. Seeing as how detective and spy films were popular in America and Europe, the Turks tried their hand at one of these Spy / Sci-Fi hybrids. This was the outcome. The film is schlocky with cardboard sets and even worse special effects. The robot in the film makes the one in "Santa Claus Conquers the Martians" look like the ones in "Star Wars". For all of this, the film doesn't commit one of movie land's worse sins - the sin of being dull. It is a quickly paced and delirious head trip, one that only Turkey could produce.

The plot is confusing, but I'll try my best to explain (and probably miserably fail). The evil Dr. Satan wants to do something or another to the world. At his side are a crew of henchmen (or we learn are controlled by operating devices he has manufactured) and the aforementioned robots. To do these evil things to the world, he needs to steal a professor's blueprints for controlling airplanes (again I'm sketchy on what the film is actually about). However, the Deathless Devil (Kunt Tulgar) is there to fight him. He is a dashing young man who always manages to get the best babes in Turkey to have passionate topless sex with him. With the help from an unbelievably annoying partner to serve comic relief, he is on his way to put an end to Dr. Satan's treachery.

The film is one of the goofiest things you'll ever witness. The ineptness of it crosses over into the line of surrealism, like most of the country's films from the time. Due to lack of copyright laws in Turkey, there are bits and pieces of popular American films incorporated. The whole story is ripped from an old serial entitled "The Mysterious Doctor Satan", and you can pick up the theme songs from "The Pink Panther" and "Dragnet". Regardless to say, this film is a mind blowing copyright infringement (not nearly as much however as several of the more popular Turkish cult films, such as "Turkish Star Wars").

If the film was released onto DVD or VHS alone, it may be worth a rental. However, the great Mondo Macabro have gone an extra mile and put out a DVD double feature of Turkish pop cinema cult items, including this and the equally jaw-dropping "Tarkan Vs. the Vikings". The best part of the whole disc is by far a documentary on the country's bizarre film output. It includes clips from such "classics" as "Turkish Star Wars" and "Turkish Star Trek". If you enjoy the films on the DVD, I recommend tracking down bootlegs of other Turkish films. They aren't all that hard to find, and are available from such retailers as 5 Minutes to Live and Shocking Videos. The DVD serves as a perfect introduction to the genre, and this film is one of it's goofiest outputs. (5/10)
