TIFF Talk 2015: Jordan, "Baskin"
Name: Jordan, Miami
The Film: Baskin (Turkey)
What's it about?
Four Turkish cops stumble across a black mass and go to hell.
Did you like it?
It was alright. Baskin is what you would expect from Midnight Madness. I felt it was going for that whole Martyrs vibe -- that's a French horror movie that was also at Midnight Madness several years ago. I didn't think Baskin quite succeeded the way Martyrs did. I heard that it was adapted from a short film. I think it works better as a short film. The feature dragged quite a bit, but you go to Midnight Madness for the blood and guts and it has a lot of that.
