Dünyayı Kurtaran Adam (The Man Who Saved the World) is a 1982 Turkish science fantasy adventure film also known as Turkish Star Wars because of its notorious use of unauthorized footage from Star Wars and other movies worked into the film.
The musical soundtrack is entirely lifted from popular hit movies. The main theme used is “The Raiders March” from Raiders of the Lost Ark, while other scenes incorporate the music of Moonraker, Ben-Hur, Flash Gordon, Giorgio Moroder’s version of Battlestar Galactica, Planet of the Apes, Silent Running, Moses and Disney’s Black Hole.
Upon its initial release, the film was panned by critics for its incoherent story line, poor performances, and use of stock footage and music from other films. Despite this (or possibly due to this), the film has gained a significant cult following over the years.
Join us for the final Crap Film Club of 2017 to undergo one of the most unique cinematic experiences of all time, bad or otherwise! Two men crash land on an alien planet and have to fight skeletons, zombies and what appear to be giant muppets…what more could you possibly ask for?! Apparently there’s some other science fiction film being released the following week but, trust us, it won’t be anywhere near as entertaining as this. So, as we say here at CFC…accept only cheap imitations!
Please note – this is a special charity screening with ALL proceeds being donated to Crisis, so please help us to help the homeless this Xmas. We also hope to have a special guest to introduce the film and to screen a short documentary about its making before the main feature.
“It lives up to ALL the hype. You need to make everyone you know see this movie.” – Best Worst Movies Ever
“It’s not every day I get to see a movie that makes me laugh so hard it makes me vomit.” – Rare Cult Cinema
“Jaw-droppingly insane … a film that makes criticism moot.” – Film Threat
“This movie is HILARIOUS to watch, which is made funnier by the fact that it’s not a comedy. If you are a fan of the “so bad it’s good” school of films, watch immediately.” – Slackjaw Punks
“What it lacks in acting, special effects, originality, and artfulness, ‘Turkish Star Wars’ makes up for in sheer, jaw-dropping weirdness and audacity.” – Popular Mechanics
