An alien ends up getting stranded on Earth where he befriends a lonely little boy.
BADI is best remembered for being the first of the many E.T. rip-offs. Of course, the fact that it comes from Turkey means that it's also an incredibly poorly made film that is pretty bad on every level. I think what makes these Turkish movies so bad is the simple fact that there was zero attempt to make them any good. Instead of trying to be a good, decent or even a poor rip-off they instead just came up with a copycat idea and would do nothing with it.
It doesn't matter that BADI features horrible acting, horrible direction and horrible effects. The only thing that mattered to the producer and director was the fact that they got anything filmed and sold it to the public. Today we watch movies like these just for cheap thrills of seeking out something bad but can you imagine if you actually had to pay money and walked into a theater showing this?
The version I watched didn't have any subtitles so who knows what type of dialogue was going on here. Whatever was being said certainly didn't help bring anything out of the performances. As for the alien, it was a midget inside a really awful looking costume with an incredibly scary looking mask. I guess you could say the mask looked like a Mr. Potato Head that had been beaten and mashed with a bat.
BADI will appeal to awful movie lovers but sadly there's nothing here that would fit the "so bad it's good" label.
