#MonthOfSpooks – Baskin 1


Baskin follows a small but sociable group of policemen (whilst also being a bit arsehole-y) are sent to give backup to a another patrol car. Unfortunately the call emanates from a less than desirable area.

Told with flashbacks and interlacing the story with previous locations it creates quite a confusing scenario but once the shit goes down, it goes down in big style. Finding the other police vehicle outside a huge old building (an abandoned police station from the Ottoman days), the team enter and are split up, eventually reconvening, though not by choice, by being the centre piece to an occult ceremony being presided over by a disfigured man.

With lashings of blood and gore it isn’t for the faint of heart or stomach, The plot is ok if a bit weak and slightly convoluted, and with its finale it tries very hard to redeem itself by being clever although it doesn’t quite manage it (but it is a decent enough final moment!). Reminded me very much of The Void in tone and scope.
