Watch: U.S. Trailer for Turkish Shocker ‘Baskin’

Turkish Shocker

IFC Midnight has debuted the first U.S. trailer for Turkish horror head-trip Baskin, which premiered at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival.

Based on his 2013 short film of the same name, Can Evrenol’s chiller sends a squad of unsuspecting cops through a trapdoor to Hell when they stumble upon a Black Mass in an abandoned building.

Baskin will hit theaters and VOD on March 25th, courtesy of IFC in the U.S. and Raven Banner Entertainment in Canada. It stars Muharrem Bayrak, Gorkem Kasal, and Fatih Dokgöz. Feast your eyes on this incredibly wet new trailer.

Looks crazy as fuq, hope it lives up to the hype.

Turkish Horror Film

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 slippages pull the carpet from under your feet and keep you guessing right up to the final moment. A wildly original whatsit that reconfirms Turkey as the breakout national cinema of the moment.
