ÖLDÜREN ÖRÜMCEK - The Turkish Spiderman (1972)

Welcome to another Wacky Wild & Weird Wednesday in The Dungeon, and they don't get much wackier or weirder than these 70's flicks outta Turkey, and tonight's feature is definitely no exception!!

"ÖRÜMCEK" means Spiderman I guess, but this guy is more like some Japanese Power Ranger than he is like an American comic book! The theme song, and the music that comes on every time Spiderman kicks ass is totally pilfered from the instrumental break and drum solo from Iron Butterfly's "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida," chopped up and regurgitated!

You get a lot of scenes like this in Turkish movies! Easy access to cool catacombs for guys on a budget!

Wow! A secret hiding place nobody has noticed for years because it blends in so well with the rest of the wall!

"But I don't know how to howl like the Wolfman!" (There's no sub-titles, so I just have to guess at what they're saying!)

As far as I have been able to discern, the word Patrón means the exact same thing in Turkish and in Spanish! The Patrón is The Boss, and he does not like to be disturbed or sign autographs when he's working!!

Time for a little break, and a minute from this lovely songbird!

The audacity of these swine, bugging The Boss when he's working again! Can't they see he's busy? What's wrong with these fools? (Doesn't this kind of look like a scene from Dr. Caligari?

Make no mistake, the party was on in 1972 Turkey, even if the musical instruments seen are not the same ones heard! This dancing gal was hot!

Finally Spiderman makes the scene, and he's got some serious interrupting to do!

The cool thing about this Spiderman compared to the American Spiderman is that when it gets right down to it, he'll just pull out his gun and shoot you, no screwing around!

While I'm on the subject of screwing around, these guys still haven't figured out not to bother El Patrón when he's working! No damn wonder he's pissed off all the time!

Here's a nice portrait of Örümcek aka Spiderman!

You've got to admit they've got some real lookers in Turkey! Just good luck trying to figure out what their names are!

The Police drive Ramblers! Can't go wrong there!!

Turkish Spiderman unmasks for the pretty lady, and she let's him know that she's not a Three Stooges fan!

These two go at it, and Turkish Spiderman doesn't take off anything except his helmet!

"Here I come to save the day!!!!"

This couple goes back to that hidden brick chamber to get the treasure, and the booty too! Spiderman shows up and kills them both!!

This would be the picture Turkish Spiderman would have used for his Facebook profile pic I'm sure!

In Turkey, I don't think they have a Boss's Day, and if they do, this day wasn't it! At least he won't have to worry about ever being disturbed again! Cabeza Shish Kabob! Okay, so where else can you download it or watch it for free? Only at The Internet Archive as far as I know!!
