Turkish films over the years have been known to be of… shall we say… questionable quality? I’m looking at you, Turkish Exorcist, Turkish Star Wars, Turkish Jaws, and Turkish Rambo! That can’t last forever though, can it? It’s looking like the Turks have finally gotten their cinematic shit together.
Variety is reporting out of Cannes that Barcelona genre producer M’s Entertainment (Asmodexia) has set its second feature, the low-budget Baskin.
Baskin’s plot revolves around four cops responding to a routine call who discover a Lovecraftian cult whose quarters hide the very horrors that should only belong in Hell.
The film is costing under $500,000 is and fully financed by M’s Entertainment via private equity. By targeting theatrical but also robust VOD play, M’s Entertainment is breaking in a new production/distribution/promotion model for genre movies in Spain. Turkish helmer Can Evrenol will direct from his own screenplay based on his 2013 short.
Baskin will shoot in Turkey in late 2014 with a local crew and cast.
