Şeytan AKA Turkish Exorcist (Metin Erksan, 1974) 1hr 40m
03/10/20 20:15 @ CCA Glasgow
Şeytan is a near shot-for-shot remake of The Exorcist but with the original’s Catholicism replaced with Islam – necessitating some minor but fascinating changes to the plot and iconography. Director Metin Erksan is one of the most celebrated Turkish filmmakers, winning the Golden Bear at Berlin for his earlier film Dry Summer (1964), but here he sticks fairly close to William Friedkin’s template, even making use of Mike Oldfield’s Tubular Bells on the soundtrack.
