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.
