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.
