Toronto: Turkish Horror Movie ‘Baskin’ Bought by IFC Midnight

IFC Midnight has acquired U.S. rights to the Turkish-language horror thriller “Baskin” following its screening at the Midnight Madness section of the Toronto Film Festival.

Can Evrenol’s film centers on a Turkish police unit discovering a blood-soaked den used for satanic rituals in a desolate area. Salt Co. has been handling international sales.

The film was produced by Muge Buyuktalas of MO Films and executive produced by Todd Brown of XYZ Films and Mike Hostench. It stars Gorkem Kasal, Ergun Kuyucu, Mehmet Cerrahoglu, Sabahattin Yakut, Mehmet Fatih Dokgoz and Muharrem Bayrak.

The film is based on Evrenol’s 2013 short film of the same name, and draws upon such films as “Quest for Fire,” “Apocalypse Now,” and “Hellraiser” along with the paintings of Caravaggio, Bosch, and Giger.

The deal was brokered by Nate Bolotin from XYZ Films on behalf of the filmmakers and by Arianna Bocco for IFC.
