Certificate X Presents Halloween Horror Shock Show

Please note this is an 18+ event
Seytan (Turkey 1974)
Fully Re-mastered
Turkish with English subtitles
Director: Metin Erksan
Cast: Canan Server, Cihan Unal, Meral Saygun, Agah Hun
For Halloween this year (OK, so we are a day late), we dug deep into the Certificate X archives to re-visit the best of Halloween from pre-pandemic years. The best horror trailers, the most applauded short film, and the much loved feature Seytan, now fully remastered and cleaned up.
Seytan, if of course, the legendary Turkish re-make of The Exorcist (1973). A shameless scene-for-scene copy of Willian Friedkin’s masterpiece, but without the budget, creativity, or talent. There is however, just enough individuality (geared towards pleasing Turkish audiences) to initiate the occasional surprise.
You know the story. Little rich girl possessed by a foul mouthed demon…
Behind the infernal trashiness of Seytan is a gloriously enjoyable treasure.
“It’s The Exorcist, but not as you know it. Regan, deep in the throes of satanic possession, is beginning to bear more than a passing resemblance to Shrek. She’s growling like a calving cow and the demonic vomit she’s spitting is made of… blue ketchup?” Little White Lies magazine.
Our Satanic feature is supported by a 30 minute German Super 8mm version of a notorious video nasty (subtitled by us) and a small selection of truly outrageous horror films trailers.
It’s a Horror Shock Show not to be missed.
