The first trailer for Turkish horror, Baskin, arrived last week and brought some real terror for horror fans to thrive on. The horror community blew up with excitement for what looks to be one hell of a ride, right to the depths of deepest, darkest terror.
Now comes a slightly longer trailer, and if you are brave enough, you’ll find the trailer below. It’s basically the same as the first trailer, just with around fifteen seconds of bonus footage added in, so see if you can spot it. Oh, and try not to have nightmares!
The film follows five cops working the graveyard shift who get called out to the middle of nowhere to investigate a disturbance. Sans backup, the policemen end up in a labyrinthine ruin that conceals the blood soaked den of a group of terrifying cultists that plunges them into a bloody world of violent madness.
Baskin is based on a short film of the same name, which was directed by Evrenol and Ogulcan Eren Akay. Here’s the synopsis for the short film:
A group of Turkish police called in to a desolate area stumble upon a squalid and blood-soaked den of satanic ritual… Baskin is a visceral trip into the darkest pits of a very palpable evil.
And here’s the TIFF synopsis for the feature length film:
A squad of unsuspecting cops goes through a trapdoor to Hell when they stumble upon a Black Mass in an abandoned building.
