Baskin (2015) Film Review | 100 Day Film Challenge – Day 91

 Baskin is based off of the short film of the same name, and is directed by the same director, Can Evrenol. I can’t really say what this film is about without ruining it, but basically what occurs is a police squadron receives a call for backup at an apartment complex. What they find isn’t what they expected…

The film is slow to start, with scenes full of dialogue. Even during these scenes though, there’s a creeping sense of dread and some disturbing imagery. As the film goes on, the dread claws its way to the surface, leaving you on the edge of your seat.

If you’re squeamish, do not, I repeat DO NOT, watch Baskin. You’ll thank me later…

The film is mostly shot in blue and orange lighting, and I thought it was a very cool touch and added to the film’s intensity. I also loved the stylish cinematography and use of different camera angles.

Baskin is a unique horror film that will leave you feeling disturbed, and maybe even a little sickened. If you can handle gore and love films that crawl under your skin, this is right up your alley. If you don’t like being scared or films with disturbing imagery, then I would advise you skip this and save yourself from a heart attack/losing your lunch.

Verdict: 3.5/5
