Mark’s Hollywood Horror Countdown #20

20. Baskin (2016)
If Hieronymus Bosch were to make a film, it would be Baskin. Like the third panel of The Garden of Delights, this Turkish delight is a descent into perverted torments of Hell. There is a freedom with Baskin that like many films outside the western sphere of influence, are allowed to go full bore into a subject without discrimination or the confines of mass appeal; they are allowed to make art and experiment instead of answering to the bottom line. Much like A Serbian Film, Baskin, goes places western films wouldn’t touch. While not as ugly as ASF, Baskin gets real dark and very twisted.

Five butch policemen kill time at an out of town restaurant exhibiting obnoxious machismo as they break in the new guy. They are called out to back up a patrol that had been called out to a place called Inceagac, which has historically been associated with evil. En route, they are run off the road and while on foot, soon encounter a group of weird gypsies whom they force to lead them to the specific location of the call out – an old abandoned building. Inside they encounter, are held captive and tortured by a mass of sadistic ritualistic imps who dwell in the space between earth and Hell – or some form of it.

Baskin is a hypnotic gore-fest with heart. Not lovey-dovey heart, but the blood pumping kind; the kind that drives people to fully commit to something they love doing. A lot of conviction and special care went into putting something this nasty on camera and getting away with it. Baskin is visceral, cruel, demented and wonderfully strange.

Check out the trailer below and be sure to tune in tomorrow as it starts getting real good from here.

You gotta love winter. I love the seasonal change, it's stark beauty. And at least there's no bloody mosquitos!

I'm starting to think batman just finds any reason to slap robin.

I'm looking out my window right now at the lovely snow :P

Loving Edmonton in summer is one thing, freezing in Winter is quite another. NOPE

Isla and Marliss! Hooray for snow.

It's a blue cape and hood Lisa Carson

It hardly even snows here.
