Enter a world of suffering and madness


A squad of unsuspecting cops go through a trapdoor to Hell when they stumble upon a Black Mass in an abandoned building, in the tour-de-force feature debut from ferociously talented director Can Evrenol.

Based on Evrenol’s terrifying 2013 short of the same name, 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.

Can Evrenol won Best Director in the “Next Wave” Spotlight Competition at Fantastic Fest.
