Written & Directed by Can Evrenol
This is Turkish auteur Evrenol’s last stand-alone horror short before entering the world of feature filmmaking and it is an audacious one. Baskin is a gruesome, nightmarish and bloody instant classic of short-form terror.
Evrenol made a highly regarded feature version of Baskin in 2015 that takes the story in a slightly more surreal direction and has recently completed his latest horror film Housewife.
