Serdar gets serious in RAMPAGE

From January 12, 2009:


“Turkish Rambo” Coming to DVD

CHAMPAIGN, IL (January 12, 2009)Dark Maze Studios has acquired the rights to KORKUSUZ, a 1986 Turkish film better known to fans as “Turkish Rambo,” and will be releasing it on DVD in Spring 2009 as RAMPAGE. The disc will contain the film’s first-ever English language version and numerous bonus features.

In recent years Turkey has become well-known in America for its “remakesploitation” movies – knock-offs of popular American films such as STAR WARS, THE EXORCIST, and SUPERMAN – from the 1960s through the 1980s.

“I’m incredibly excited to be putting this release together,” said producer and Dark Maze president Ed Glaser. “I’m a huge fan of Turkish remakesploitation and I think a lot of folks will really get a kick out of this one.”

The story revolves around a Turkish commando, Serdar, who must infiltrate and capture a group of terrorists living in the mountains.

RAMPAGE has been unavailable since its original Turkish VHS release in 1986.

[Since we received this “immediate release” a month ago (sorry, folks) Dark Maze has set a specific release date – Tuesday, April 28, 2009 – as well as revealed DVD features, which will include an “audio commentary, a making-of featurette, poster and lobby card gallery, mini poster insert, retro packaging, and more!” Although several “collector” labels have released bootlegs of Turkish “remakesploitation,” this is the first official American release we’re aware of for any of them. Could you imagine a box set of these things? Ay! – ed.]
