Hey, Nicolas Winding Refn: this is how it's done.
Tom Huddleston, Time Out, 2016-07-11
Part art film slow burn and part extreme splatterfest, Baskin is best enjoyed as a movie that features the memorable image of a man gouging out someone's eyeball with a knife and then French-kissing the bloody socket.
Alison Willmore, BuzzFeed News, 2016-04-01
The pacing is slack and the splatter excessive, but this twisted cross-genre exercise should be red meat to gore-hounds.
Noel Murray, Los Angeles Times, 2016-03-31
A torture-gore blowout that rises above pure nausea with an intriguing blur of possible realities.
Tom Keogh, Seattle Times, 2016-03-31
"Baskin" is a perfectly imbalanced mix of chilly atmosphere, heavy-handed symbolism, and familiar horror-movie tropes.
Simon Abrams, RogerEbert.com, 2016-03-25
Tickling the mind even as it lurches the gut, "Baskin," a stylish, shape-shifting horror film from Turkey, pulls a bait-and-switch.
Ben Kenigsberg, New York Times, 2016-03-24
Evrenol shoots all of this artfully, imbuing everything from a police van broken down by the side of a road to a man having his intestines slowly pulled out with a certain eerie beauty.
Katie Rife, AV Club, 2016-03-24
Its initial promise dissipates in a muddle of repetitious phantasmagoria and too little narrative or character development.
Dennis Harvey, Variety, 2016-03-07
[Baskin] offers little in the way of narrative involvement or scares but doesn't stint on sustained, stylized revulsion.
