Baskin 

When: Wed., April 20 2016
For adventurous late-night cinephiles and itinerant gore-fest fanatics, the 2015 Turkish horror film Baskin, screening at 7:30 tonight at the Capitol Theatre, might be a curiosity worth checking out. For most everyone else, this derivative hellscape barf-carnival will be a tough sit. The film is not self-consciously ridiculous, along the lines of The Human Centipede, though it hails from the same U.S. distributor. Nor is the premise as imaginatively depraved as the 1987 seminal British horror flick Hellraiser. It's frankly unclear what the story even is. We know that the rookie cop was orphaned long ago (we saw him in the prologue) and has been under the guardianship of the police chief. Both of them possess some degree of supernatural vision, but it's unclear why or how or to what end. A final twist fails to satisfy. Regular admission rates apply. (Allard)
