Trivia

Mehmet Cerrahoglu, who plays the role of Father, has an extremely rare skin condition that made his physical appearance very unique and instrumental to the look of Father. Director Can Evrenol had been looking for actors with rare natural appearances for the role of Father and once he was shown a photograph of Mehmet by his casting director, Evrenol immediately knew he had found his Father and instantly cast him.

Quotes

Baba: [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.

Surreal Head-Trip Invitation To a Black Mass
8 December 2016 | by spencergrande6See all my reviews

Baskin is a surreal hear-trip invitation to a black mass. What starts as an atmospheric cop thriller, set in some backwoods Turkish town most definitely doesn't end that way. I couldn't tell you what exactly this movie was on about; it becomes a back and forth between two different plot strands that incoherently come together to signify nothing, not just in terms of meaning but also in tension, drama or audience engagement.

But it doesn't matter as much as you may think. This film has its own unique aura, one that can't be denied, and it makes you feel you've witnessed something that you shouldn't have. There is some truly twisted stuff in this film, some of it probably a tad too much (not in terms of good taste but in a comical form of one-upmanship with itself).

Mad props to the best horror heavy of the year, motherf***ing Mehmet Cerrahoglu as Baba. May he haunt every child's nightmares for the entirety of their formative lives.
