Like many of the movies I’ll be discussing, Can Evrenol’s 2015 Baskin kept peering at me in a sea of selections on Netflix that looked good, but that caused decision freeze on the question of whether I needed to invest time in this story. It’s a rare thing for me to see a Turkish horror movie; the only time I had seen one previously was Seytan, the unintentionally comic remake of The Exorcist.
A jaded horror fan rarely experiences fear anymore, but they can experience profound distress. I was left so disturbed and revolted that I question whether or not I needed this in my life.
In other words: a job well done!
