|‘Oh the horror!’-- Turkish horror flicks come out of the coffin |
|For the past few years, Turkish cinema has been enthusiastically screening horror movies. If you haven't noticed that, you must not have gone to the cinema for at least three days, nor have read anything about movies.|
The Taylan brothers started everything with the movie "Okul" (School) in 2004. With the support of Plato Films behind them, at a time when indigenous cinema flirted nicely with the viewer, these two brothers finally released the Turkish genre of horror from its coffin. Despite striking examples in the 1950s and 1970s such as "Drakula İstanbul'da" [Dracula in İstanbul] or "Şeytan" [the Devil], horror really first reached Turkish cinema-goers with "Okul." However, the Taylan brothers probably didn't know that the fuse they ignited would advance so quickly toward an explosion.
