Cinema Clips: Baskin

Posted By on Tue, Mar 29, 2016 at 11:00 AM

The horror genre has been getting a nice boost these last couple of years. Well, here’s another one to bolster that argument, but it isn’t for the faint of heart. This one is for those original Hellraiser loving, Dario Argento following horror fans that want their scares as dismal, dirty and creepy as they can get.

Turkish writer-director Can Evrenol goes for the total bloody freak-out and succeeds as a group of cops respond to a call, get in a strange car crash, and wind up going through the doorway to Hell after entering an abandoned building. While on their way to Hell, they are disemboweled, blinded, forced to do things with masked monsters, and generally not treated well.

I can only recommend this movie to the most hardcore of horror fans. It’s as blood soaked and nightmarish as these things get, and will screw with your mind and your sense of well-being. It will make you feel just a little scared about watching a horror movie again in that you will now be reminded that some directors out there have the key to what scares people the most.

I have nothing but respect for a movie that can scare the crap out of me like this one did, but it’s probably going to be a while until I dare to watch it again.

Unless you count the parts of it that I will see after I go to sleep tonight and have nightmares about it. Damn you, Can Evrenol!!!
