THE CARLTON MIDNIGHT SOCIETY
TURKISH STAR WARS
directed by Çetin İnanç
Turkey / 1982 / 91 mins / Turkish (with English subtitles)
Everyone loves STAR WARS. But wouldn't STAR WARS be better if it featured music from RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, Han Solo repeatedly beating monsters with their own severed limbs and children being murdered by mummies? Of course it would! Incorporating actual footage from STAR WARS with what appears to be snuff footage from Dimension X, TURKISH STAR WARS is by far, the ultimate achievement in outlaw plagiarism from the land of Turkey!
Two space jockeys from Earth are captured by an immoral Wizard who wants greater powers by enslaving humans and taking their «brain power» for his own. The two jockeys escape and find themselves joining a group of freedom fighters led by an old man and a pretty blonde woman.
The temptation to see STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI may be strong, but do make it a point to come out and see TURKISH STAR WARS: THE OTTOMAN EMPIRE STRIKES BACK on the BIG SCREEN courtesy of your friends at the Carlton Midnight Society!
