It’s an easy night on patrol for Arda, Remzi and the rest of their police unit: a bit of cards, a bit of football, a bit of barbecue. They could never know what to expect when summoned out to support another group of cops at a remote building. And by the time they realize what they’re facing it will be far, far too late. 

Evrenol proves himself a master of mood and tone with BASKIN, meticulously crafting a sort of baroque puzzle box sure to provoke a visceral physical response in even the most jaded. While too many young hands are content to shock in the name of horror without ever reaching for true fear, Evrenol goes a step beyond. BASKIN is a film to dread, a film that slips deep into the psyche and uncovers the topography of hidden nightmares. 

Less a film to be deconstructed and talked about than it is a film to be experienced – though there’s certainly plenty to deconstruct – BASKIN more than delivers on the promise of Evrenol’s short film work, bringing the young Turk to screens seemingly fully-formed as a new auteur of the horror world.
