description

What should be a routine night on patrol becomes a trip into the darkness of the mind and soul for a squad of unsuspecting cops in this tour-de-force feature debut from the ferociously talented director Can Evrenol. Based on Evrenol's terrifying 2013 short of the same name (which screened at CUFF 2013), and drawing upon a diverse range of inspirations — not only such films as QUEST FOR FIRE, APOCALYPSE NOW, and HELLRAISER but also the paintings of Caravaggio, Bosch, and Giger — Baskin offers up a nightmarish compendium of imaginative frights that will leave even seasoned horror-movie fans reeling. – TIFF
