Storyline

The film takes on the struggle of Timur Frank for becoming famous the easy way after learning that he is the grandson of Baron Fredirik Von Frankenstein. Timur Frank goes with his lover Sema to the Association of Spirit Lovers and defends the opinion that the real truth is not the spirit but the mind. At this instant, a mysterious man tells Timur that he is the grandson of Frankenstein. Timur then goes to his granddad's castle, finds his handwritten manuscript and follows the directions written there. Together with Butler Fatin and Secretary Ayla, they transport a brain they steal from the brain bank to a corpse they steal from the cemetery. The creature that comes to life will cause them much trouble. Written by Ibrahim Veli Sözer/tsa.org.tr

Sevimli Frankestayn (Turkish Young Frankenstein) (1975)

* (out of 4)

I guess the Turkish Film Industry frowns that their most popular films are low budget junk, which usually rip off American scenes shot for shot. Star Wars, The Exorcist and Superman are just a few of the titles that have been ripped off and this movie here rips Mel Brooks' Young Frankenstein. This is the first film of this type that I've watched and while it was perfectly awful I must admit that I'm going to start seeking others out. This wasn't a scene for scene rip but it might as well have been. All the famous scenes from the Brooks movie are redone here with incredibly cheap effects. Just one example are whenever the equipment starts to flash. It's done here by cheap fireworks going off. The monster make up is incredibly bad and I'd say that this is the worst looking monster in film history. The film was in Turkish without English subs so I couldn't understand the dialogue but I'm sure it was just as bad as the rest of the film. Fans of Young Frankenstein will certainly want to check this out just to see how incredibly stupid it all really is. The spoof of the hermit/monster scene from Bride of Frankenstein is especially bad.
