Solid, visually striking, well acted
26 August 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A solid horror film from Turkey, Baskin tells the existential story of some young police on patrol. The atmosphere in the first half of the film was one of dread and tension stoked to nearly psychedelic heights. While the first and second halves of this movie look different from one another, there is continuity and the narrative is mostly linear. Not only does it make sense, it is superbly acted and directed, with shades of Clive Barker. Fans of Hellraiser, Candyman, Nightbreed, or any of his other titles will probably enjoy this film. Use of lighting, daring casting, and practical effects create a horrific atmosphere toward the end.

I thought the story paid particular attention to the behavior of evil spirits, and that made it all the more fun. Good stuff!!!
