Want to know where Hell is?
Well, according to this Turkish horror, Hell is in Turkey. Rumored to be the scariest movie of the year, “Baskin”, from director Can Evrenol (“Sandik”, “To My Mother and Father”), is the movie to see. Making its premier at several film festivals, including:
Midnight Madness in TIFF, Toronto International Film Festival (Canada), L’Etrange Festival (France), Austin Fantastic Festival (USA), Filmekimi (Turkey), Sitges Film Festival (Spain), Morbido Film Festival (Mexico), AFI Fest (USA), and Stockholm International Film Festival (Sweden), and makes its limited theatrical debut release in the beginning of January in Turkey, Germany, and mid-February in Sweden. There has yet to be a theatrical release date in the U.S.
Based on Can Evernol’s short, “Baskin”, a squad of unsuspecting cops go through a trap door to Hell when they stumble upon a Black Mass in an abandoned building.
“Baskin”, The Short Film
In 2013, Can Evrenol and Ogulcan Eren Akay, made a short film, called “Baskin”, where a group of Turkish police called into a desolate area stumble upon a squalid and blood-soaked den of satanic ritual. “Baskin” is a visceral trip into the darkest pits of a very palpable evil. The 2013 short has done so well, why not turn it into a feature film?
Critics are already calling the Turkish horror “Baskin” (2015) the scariest, goriest, bloodiest movie of the year, features some very disturbing images that look just amazing. It hypes up my anticipation for the film even more. I am always looking for dark, gory movies, and I cannot wait for the U.S. theatrical release date. Just take a look at these images that have been taken during the premier screenings.
