Five interlocking tales of terror follow the fates of a group of weary travellers who confront their worst nightmares - and darkest secrets - over one long night on a desolate stretch of desert highway.
The renovation of an old house in a village somewhere in Eastern Europe will bring the crew of an American home improvement television show up against superstitions, misunderstandings, and bloody violence.
[Before cutting out the eyes of another man]
Are you ready to stop worshipping power and unite with us? Are you ready to be one with the cosmos? Are you ready to give up your worldly eyes and open your eyes to what is beyond? Open your heart to me, son. Open your mind to me.

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!!!
