Turkish Horror Masterpiece BASKIN Gets a New Trailer


Turkish shocker BASKIN gets gross new trailer.

We’ve been raving and drooling about filmmaker Can Everenol’s delicious, deliriously vomitous, Turkish horror head-trip BASKIN since we caught its premiere at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival.

You can read our review of the film HERE.

And check out our interview with Evrenol HERE.

Here’s the official synopsis:

A five-man unit of cops on night patrol get more than they bargain for when they arrive at a creepy backwater town in the middle of nowhere after a call comes over the radio for backup. Entering a derelict building, the seasoned tough guys and their rookie junior, who’s still haunted by a traumatic childhood dream, do the one thing you should never do in this kind of movie: they split up. They soon realize they’ve stumbled into a monstrous charnel house and descend into an ever-more nightmarish netherworld where grotesque, mind-wrenching horrors await them at every turn. This is one Baskin  (that’s “police raid” to you non-Turkish speakers) that isn’t going to end well. But wait! Things aren’t what they seem in this truly disturbing, outrageously gory, and increasingly surreal film whose unpredictable narrative pulls the carpet from under your feet and keeps you guessing right up to the final moment. A wildly original whatsit that reconfirms Turkey as the breakout national cinema of the moment.

BASKIN has been picked up for US distribution via IFC and will premiere on VOD and NYC theatrical @The IFC Center on March 25th and in LA @Arena Cinema on April 1st.

Until then, feast on this incredibly wet new trailer…
