Trivia

In an interview with Fangoria, director Can Evrenol stated that the main inspirations for the Father's cult were the films The Descent (2005), Quest for Fire (1981) and Frontier(s) (2007). He also cited Nicolas Winding Refn's film, Only God Forgives (2013), as a major influence because of its 'more stylistic, colorful, dreamy quality'. See more »

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.

A trip to hell n back. Very surrealistic, like a frightening nightmare.
27 January 2017 | by Fella_shibbySee all my reviews

Came across this title while browsing on IMDb. Read very positive reviews by regular posters in hcb. Fortunately got a pirated DVD with subtitles for 50 rupees. The movie starts very promising. Cops chatting n dining in some very creepy motel. The atmosphere is creepy. The chat goes on. A lil boring in the beginning but the patience pays off very well once they get to the abandoned building when hell is truly unleashed. Its like a Freudian,  giving way to a claustrophobic sense of approaching dread of darkness and of death. The set lighting was extremely poor (may b the low budget n debut direction). Some of the sequences have less of an impact than they would have if we were able to see more of what was going. Thankfully it wasn't shot in hand held shaky stuff. The dark, desaturated cinematography is perfectly suited to this aesthetic and adds to the grime. The movie is very surrealistic, like a trip to hell n back. When the end credit rolls, u feel like u jus awoke from a mind-*uckin nightmare. Curious to see what its director will do next. Fans of Clive barker, Lucio fulci, David lynch, Dario argento n Wes craven will definitely enjoy this movie.

The actor who played Baba had an extremely unique look, like a true Satan waiting in hell.
