Here is a basic plot: A squad of unsuspecting cops goes through a trapdoor to Hell when they stumble upon a Black Mass in an abandoned building, and this is basically the story in a nutshell, and this is on the basis of the film's minimal plot in general. We have a group of cops who we are lead to assume are massive arseholes but is only really hinted on when one of the five men beats on a young waiter in an out of nowhere restaurant, a restaurant which is seemingly linked to 'The Father', the bald headed man demon who appears in the final half of the film.
The five men are called to an abandoned police station only to find themselves in the depths of a hellish dreamscape of sexual demonic orgyness which looks like it could have been placed in a twisted version of the Silent Hill videogame franchise, and visually I can't fault this film, these demonic sex crazies look utterly fucking creepy but this is the only true thing Baskin has going for it.
The story is as paper thin as tracing paper, the acting is passable and as a whole I don't understand what the bloody hell is going on. This is an arthouse style film I know for sure many horror fans will love, and I have many on my facebook friends list who will no doubt disagree with my thoughts here, but in my eyes this film is just a jumbled mass of arthouse and torture horror with nothing to show for it than some demon figures and a demon who looks to have been dragged out of Mad Max: Fury Road.
Baskin bored me, and I can sit through some utter shit. I reminds me of how I felt watching the Polish horror film Demon but at least Demon's story made some kind of random sense. The one good point of the film overall is it does look good, the design of the demons and the look of the hell station looks great. If you are a hardcore horror fan who loves arthouse horror then this is a film for you however if you are a horror newbie or like your films with more story and less metaphors on life and hell then stay away from this one.
