typicalfilm – Baskin


Baskin (2015)

Not only is this another that you really need to see to be able to understand, it’s another film that is wonderfully covered on the amazing BindTortureKast. I found the first half mesmerizing… and that says a lot about how I reacted to the second half which is best described as hypnotic. Along with the interplay of colour, sound, gore and grime you have impeccable performances by basically every single person. The stand out star playing The Father could not have been a better choice. It seems the role, if not the entire film, was written for him. From the shorts on Evrenol’s site and the video that introduces us to this world, this filmmaker hopefully sticks with us in horror for a long time to come. It’s not a Hellraiser-ish place as many reviews have hinted at, so I’m glad I avoided those views and instead laughed along with the mainstream critics who obviously had no idea what they were in for but seemed to be secretly hoping for the next Bone Tomahawk.

Ottawa humans! This film will be at the Mayfair Theatre on April 27 and 28, presented by my pals at Zombieinfo.com!
