BASKIN profile: Can Evrenol

Premiering tonight at Midnight Madness is Baskin, the debut feature film of provocative writer-director Can Evrenol. Evrenol was born in Istanbul, and is an alumni of the University of Kent, where he studied art history and film. Baskin follows a group of police officers who stumble into a place where a sort of black mass is taking place by a malevolent cult, and are pulled into a violent, inescapable hell.  Although this is the first full-length film in Evrenol's output, his resume is rife with tense and unique pieces (including a short film also called Baskin of which this film is based off of) that can assure every Midnighter will be on the edge of their seats tonight.

Check out some of his shorts and just try to not get excited for tonight, I double-dog dare you:
