Onar Update! TURKISH SUPERMAN is a go!!!!
Onar Films has unleashed a beast! The TURKISH SUPERMAN DOUBLE BILL in on, kids!!
Here's the specs, in case ya missed them:
1)SUPERMEN DONUYOR (TURKISH SUPERMAN):
The most talked-about cult film of all times comes from Turkey! Defying criticism, ignoring “obstacles” and aiming at the heart it will disarm you willy- nilly! The only remaining print found, was far from perfect of course but you should be getting used to it already!
2) DEMIR YUMRUK: DEVLER GELIYOR (IRON FIST: THE GIANTS ARE COMING):
A super- obscure 1973 Turkish superhero giant, with a… Super-Bat-Man so to speak! Also featuring a wheelchaired transvestite super- villain called Fumanchu, Bikini leathal babes, hook-for-hand gangsters plus more! The master was found in very good condition for a Turkish film!
Year: 1: 1979, 2: 1973
Director: 1: Kunt Tulgar, 2: Tunc Basaran
Actors: 1: Tayfun Demir, Yildirim Gencer, Gungor Bayrak
2: Huseyin Zan, Altan Gunbay, Kayhan Yildizoglu
1200 numbered copies
Turkish audio, Dolby Stereo
English & Greek subtitles
Colour (1), B/W (2), 4:3
Interview (Kunt Tulgar)
PLUS, POSTER INSERT!
And in further news, Bill (Onar Master Himself) has given us a taste of things to come ...
1) I have found a new studio for my dvd authoring and remastering work. They will also take care of the subtitles. This means that I can now:
2) ....Release 1 dvd per month! You don't believe it, huh? Neither do I.But it all looks possible what with the new studio and my new dvd release mentality which is:
3) No more double bills!! ONLY SINGLE-MOVIE DVD'S from now on! Why??...Because:
a- More trouble to handle 2 movies and relevant extras and subs etc, meaning more time, meaning if I want to stick to 1 DVD per month I must forget double-bills and adopt SINGLE MOVIE DVD's.
b- One film per dvd means lower costs overall which of course means a SERIOUS DROP ON RETAIL & WHOLESALE PRICES by at least 2 euro, maybe 3, per dvd!!
c-The 2nd movie on each double-bill was actually overshadowed and undergraded by the 1st, "main" attraction. Example, DEMIR YUMRUK DEVLER GELIYOR & OLULER KONUSMAZ KI deserved their own unique dvd's. Same with the "main attractions". So 1 movie on its very own DVD from now on!
4) So, for the moment this is the line-up I have in mind:
Early August: KARANLIK SULAR
Early September: TARZAN ISTANBUL'DA
Early October: CASUS KIRAN (SPY SMASHER)
And then?? Hmm, why don't YOU give me ideas? Perhaps MASKELI SEYTAN? I'm happy to announce that I have secured the FULLY UNCUT VERSION!!! It includes tons of nudity! Even the credits were cut, but now my NEW credits offer some hefty nudity as well!
Or maybe some other title?
Onar does it right. If you don't buy their DVDs then we're not your friend.
