‘Baskin’ Acquired by IFC Midnight


The Turkish horror film Baskin, which premiered at TIFF’s Midnight Madness, has been acquired by IFC Midnight for U.S. rights. The film has been generating a great deal of buzz since before it even premiered and the overall consensus is that it’s a rather incredible piece of work.

You can read Brad’s review, where he states, “It’s so shocking (at times) and so astoundingly well made that, if anything, I think it puts an exclamation stamp next to Can Evrenol’s name as one of the futures of horror.”

Baskin, based on the short of the same name, sends a squad of unsuspecting cops through a trapdoor to Hell when they stumble upon a Black Mass in an abandoned building.

    “The suspense is killing me, I hope it lasts.” – Wonka…..quotes aside, I hope this isn’t the start of a long cheerleading campaign for a film completely unworthy, ie It Follows, Babadook…because I really want to like this.

    ‘Overall consensus is it’s a rather incredible piece of work.’ Who’s saying this? The people I speak to who have seen it tend to say, ‘….it’s alight. I guess.’

    I’m confident in seeing this when it’s released. There’s no points you could show in It Follows that would captivate me as much as this did. As for The Babadook, there many you could show me that would.
    Bring me Baskin!
