October 10, 2016
Stylishly mounted, well paced, with clever use of flashbacks, and written with panache.

Sinister? Sadistic? Spine chilling? Check, check, check. This is a really nifty modern horror.

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.

Its initial promise dissipates in a muddle of repetitious phantasmagoria and too little narrative or character development.
