This looks amazing and rather disturbing.

What should be a routine night on patrol becomes a trip into the darkness of the mind and soul for a squad of unsuspecting cops in this feature debut from director Can Evrenol. Based on Evrenol’s 2013 short of the same name, and drawing upon a diverse range of inspirations – films as Quest for Fire, Apocalypse Now, and Hellraiser but also the paintings of Caravaggio, Bosch, and Giger – Baskin offers up a nightmarish compendium of imaginative frights.

Responding to an emergency call for backup, the squad arrives at an old building to find an abandoned patrol car and no sign of their comrades. Entering the building and making their way to the basement, the officers catch glimpses of grotesque and unnerving images in the shadows. Soon it becomes apparent that they have stumbled into the middle of a ritual celebrating the black arts — a celebration where they may be the unwitting guests of honour. What began as a detour into the Twilight Zone becomes a shortcut to Hell.

Tense and terrifying, Baskin will invade your dream space with its unforgettable images and the unimaginable monstrosities lurking just outside your range of vision.

Directed by Can Evrenol, the film stars Gorkem Kasal, Ergun Kuyucu, Mehmet Cerrahoglu, Sabahattin Yakut, Mehmet Fatih Dokgoz, and Muharrem Bayrak.

Baskin is set to play at the Toronto International Film Festival.
