From the sublime, to the ridiculous. Or perhaps the sublimely ridiculous, to be more exact...

Onar Films are preparing to unleash another collection of Turkeywood comic book capers - this time featuring reasonable facsimiles of the Man of Steel himself - Superman!

I don't know about you, but I can't get enough of Turkish super-hero movies - and like buses, if you wait around long enough you get two at the same time! Supermen Donuyor (Returns) - possibly the most blatant example of power-packed plagiarism ever committed to celluloid - comes from 1979, and the DVD includes an interview with director Kunt Tulgar. Just check out the beguiling trailer:

1973’s Iron-Fists: Giants Are Coming features something for everyone: a Superman/Batman hybrid, an army of bikini girls and a transvestite super-villain in a wheelchair! (audio a bit loud on this...)

Frankly, I can't remember a disc I was so eager to own since the last Onar release. As much as I love Turkeywood Pop Cinema, the care, attention and most importantly English subtitles that Bill lavishes on them puts the bootleggers to shame, makes these rarities a joy to behold! With a brace of trailers, bios and stills also squeezed on, this is a must own for any curious comic book, exploitation or cult movie fan!!
