BASKIN FROM TURKEY, BLENDS STYLE AND GORE

"Tickling the mind even as it lurches the gut, “Baskin,” a stylish, shape-shifting horror film from Turkey, pulls a bait-and-switch. It abruptly morphs from a sinuous psychological thriller into a buffet for gore enthusiasts, without ever totally losing its elegance — unless your definition of that word could never encompass a graphic disembowelment or an unexpected stabbing of an eye...."

INTERVIEW WITH TURKISH DIRECTOR CAN EVRENOL ON HIS NEW HORROR SHORT: BASKIN

"Turkish for 'The Raid'. It was the working title, but it stuck. I loved the way it sounded. I didn't want another 'The Raid' in festival circuit, so I thought of just keeping the international title the same as the Turkish title. A good friend Ryan Haysom, director of 'Yellow: A Neo Giallo', said in his feedback that it sounds ancient and Lovecraftian. That was it! I kept it..."
