TU MAMA TAMBIEN
Back on the chain gang.

Women’s prison is such a rollercoaster ride. One minute you’re enjoying a water fight with other beautiful cons in the communal shower; the next you’re getting the rubber glove slapdown from a Barbie-coiffed matron. But with a little teamwork you can escape, even if you happen to be handcuffed to someone you don’t particularly like at first. Black Mama White Mama isn’t quite The Defiant Ones, but it’s got Pam Grier and Margaret Markov fleeing a blaxploitation neverland located somewhere between Hazzard County, Nicaragua, and the South China Sea, so it’s all good fun. It’s also got the killer Turkish one sheet you see above, which was made its run as Kadinlar Cehennemi, which means "women hell." Exactly. If you like b-movies, carve out a little time to watch this flick. It isn't particularly deep, but then neither are we.

VLAD TEPID
Behçet the vampire slayer.

Above is a rare promo poster for Yaguz Figenli’s thriller Kara Boga, aka Black Bull, 1974, with Behçet Nacar and Yonca Yücel. You might not deduce this from the art, which features a woman sensually eating what looks like a Tostitos chip, but this is actually a vampire movie, a sort of polyester clad take on the legend of Vlad Tepes, aka Vlad the Impaler. Like a lot of Turkish movies from the seventies, this one has numerous flaws: the acting is over the top, the sound effects are bad, the music is distractingly symphonic (except for the percussive slow burners used for the love scenes), and the original celluloid has yellowed, which makes every frame look like it was shot through a slice of lemon. But there’s action aplenty and a lot to laugh at. Wanna see a guy get stabbed in the back but for some reason clutch his stomach before falling over dead? Got ya covered. Wanna see a hunchback whose hump is clearly two day's worth of laundry stuffed under his shirt? Check. Wanna see Vlad Tepes—Vlad the frickin' Impaler—suffer a brutal beatdown from a guy who looks like Mark Spitz? Then look no further. Let's just say this one really bites, but in an entertaining way.

SONGS OF THE SIRENS
A song is worth a thousand pictures.


The other day we realized that nearly all of our femmes fatales released records at some point, so we have a megapost of sleeves today representing a fraction of these multi-talented women’s musical output. We’ve heard most of the music, believe it or not, and while its quality varies, we do suggest you check out both Marilyn Chambers and Reiko Ike—their simulated orgasms are quite pleasing to the, er, ears.

TO THE DEVIL A DAUGHTER
Will the real Seytan please stand up.

We shared the U.S. poster for The Exorcist a while ago—today we have the striking Turkish promo art. According to IMDB The Exorcist, aka Seytan, didn’t play in Turkey until 1981—eight years after its American release. We usually trust IMDB, but this time we have it on good authority they are mistaken. The Exorcist played in Turkey in 1974, and somehow left filmgoers unimpressed, opening the door for a clan of enterprising locals to make a shot-for-shot Turkish-language duplicate. We use the term duplicate loosely. The second Seytan is to the original what your imbecilic hunchbacked twin is to you. Except where your twin is firmly locked in the attic and you only see him those occasional mornings when you slide a bowl of gruel into the dark corner where he’s chained, Seytan somehow escaped confinement to offend the eyes and sensibilities of good people everywhere. We hear Turkey is seeking entry into the European Union. Based on this human rights violation, we vote no.

INFERIOR NUMBERS
The 1960s ushered in a wave of James Bond imitators.


Spies with numerical identities proliferated like mad during the ’60s, as studios tried and failed to compete with Sean Connery’s ultracool 007. But even if most of the resulting films were bad, some of the promo art was striking. Here are fifteen great posters featuring various numbered and lettered pretenders to Bond's throne. You can find more here.
