The prefect film to experience with a few friends and a lot of mind-altering substances.
12 April 2013 | by scott_lefebvreSee all my reviews

A hallucinatory alternate-reality Turkish shot-for-shot adaptation of the infamous American "horror" film The Exorcist in which Christian iconography is replaced with Islamic iconography. Over-the-top scenery-chewing performances and high-school science-project-quality special-effects make this the prefect film to experience with a few friends and a lot of mind-altering substances. This film follows in the tradition of other Turksploitation films in providing similar thrills on a limited budget. I can truly say that this has to be seen to be believed. If this is the kind of thing you're into, there's a whole genre of Turksploitation films known more commonly by titles like "Turkish Star Wars" and "Turkish Spider Man" and "Turkish Indiana Jones".
