New Turkish Delights from Onar

Bill from Onar has sent some more goodies from his excellent label and I'll be doing a little review of his new releases very soon!

OLULER KONUSMAZ KI (THE DEAD DON’T TALK) (1970)- Dir. Yavuz Yalinkilic

Sometimes the dead DO talk if ONAR gives them a chance, like this God-forgotten 1970 Turkish Gothic Horror gem. A haunted house in the forest, a ghostly zombie-like bogeyman, a curse, pretty ladies meeting horrible deaths, endless macabre boo-ha-ha's, gloomy suffocating atmosphere, Aytekin Akkaya(3 DEV ADAM'S Captain America), pretty ladies, stolen music from Space Odyssey(well, Richard Strauss, that is) and giallos, exorcisms and other goodies guarantee a hair-raising experience.

This is another worldwide premiere, never seen before on any kind of media. Luckily, the master was found in satisfactory condition so the picture is close to great.


If you are thirsty for a genuine giallo with lots of blood, sleaze, mystery and twists, this one is for you. It could be a Sergio Martino film, like STRANGE VICE OF MISS WARDH, but it comes straight from Turkey! Here, a maniac (or two?) with a sharp huge razor is after pretty girls. A woman is suffering a youth trauma and is haunted by the nightmare of her past. The only remaining master was found in good condition so the picture is not great but good enough for a Turkish 70’s film. For those of us lucky enough to have watched this trailer on past Onar releases and could not wait to see this Turkish giallo...well...the time has come!
