Baskin :- Watch Baskin on YoutubeonFire, Several hardened cops patrolling a rural area find they’ve stumbled into H-E-double-hockey-sticks in “Baskin.” Of interest as a rare modern Turkish horror film, Can Evrenol’s debut feature will be a must-see for fans at fantasy fests, but its initial promise dissipates in a muddle of repetitious phantasmagoria and too little narrative or character development. Curiosity value should power niche home-format sales overseas, with IFC Midnight claiming U.S. distrib rights at Toronto. Whether pic will overcome supposed local distaste toward such fare in imminent home-turf release is another matter. Five policemen protags are having a loud dinner at a roadside eater at the start, trading boasts and ribbing less-jaded newbie Arda (Gorkem Kasal), an orphan under the guardianship of Chief Remzi (Ergun Kuyucu). The first sign that things are a bit off hereabouts comes when one of their number, already nervous and dour for no known reason, becomes violently ill. Then bullying braggart Yavuz (Muharrem Bayrak) decides to pick a fight with the inoffensive waiter, inviting a smackdown of his own from cruel fate. Beating a retreat, the lawmen (apparent urbanites whose assignment to this unfamiliar backwater goes unexplained) answer a distress call from a nearby town about which disquieting vague “stories” circulate. After a spell being lost, colliding with a figure in the road, and an encounter with a weird gypsy-like clan of frog hunters, their van arrives at a seemingly empty onetime police precinct station, where another squad car is already parked outside. Its occupants are nowhere to be seen, but the cops do uncover some nasty other things.
