30 years after the "Golden Turkey Awards," I'm reviewing as many films described (by anybody)as so-bad-it's-good as possible.

Turkish Exorcist (1974)
aka Seytan How bad is it? It's one of the less terrible/less interesting Turkish rip-offs of American films. Should you see it? If you must see every Turkish turkey. Or even if you just need to see one.
Some 1970's remakes of American films are entertaining (Wizard of Oz, for example) and some are terrible (Star Wars), but this nearly shot-for-shot remake of The Exorcist is just unneeeded. The reaction shot of the crotch-punched hypnotist is the funniest bit. The odd texture of urine (I guess you have to see it to understand), the poorly done head spin and levitation, the endless vomit and the really long finale are all cheesy enough for a laugh.
