The Turkish "E.T."
26 January 2004 | by (Hollywood, CA) – See all my reviews

This is a cheap, unwatchable, creepy, sometimes hilarious rip-off of "E.T.", done Turkish-style. The story concerns a three-foot alien who gets stranded on Earth and befriends a young boy. The plot is completely derivative of Spielberg's yarn, and the special effects have to be seen to be believed. The alien character, named "Badi", is made up of a midget inside an extremely disturbing rubber mask. A far cry from the cute E.T. that we all know and love.

I saw an undubbed version with no subtitles, so I can't comment on the dialogue or plot intricacies. The story is very slow moving, with only a few memorable scenes to keep it from being a totally wasted rental. I'm not sure if this was a hit in Turkey back in '83, but I feel very sorry for their filmgoing public if it was. This is worth seeing only for the horrifying rubber-faced Badi, a creature that would scare any child no matter how curious and open-minded.
