Saturday night fright flick.

Hey creatures of the night out there (it's four in the morning here); This time we take a look at SEYTAN, the Turkish remake of THE EXORCIST, and compared it to the original version (well, I don't but someone on YouTube did, so thanks to that person whoever he is, LOL).

In contrast to the other imitations and ripoffs the Turkish version went the full distance and not only looks somewhat like the original; it IS a scene for scene remake! It was released only a year after the original and mind you at a time when the original version hadn't even played in Turkey. It's a pity the only copies of the film are is such bad shape but at least SOME form of print has survived. Many Turkish movies were destroyed because the owners could use the nickle (or something) in the celluloid!!!
