BASKIN (2015) Ending Explained
how's it going folks welcome to found flicks on today's inning

explained

we're looking at certainly one of my modern favorites the horrifying nightmare from turkey basket where a squad of unsuspecting cops go through a trapdoor to help when they stumble upon a black mass in an abandoned building for me this one checks a lot of boxes that are right up my alley when it comes to doing something worthwhile in modern horror this feels like in some ways an homage to hellraiser but kind of cranked up in many aspects along with really putting its own memorable stamp on its own unique concepts first and foremost you know it's always a plus having gore in your movies in my book but there's a degree that things can go that are really like way more hardcore than you'd expect using gore and violence in very upsetting and unsettling ways and for me

baskin

is high up that list because things get way effed in the third act not just gore either but some weird sexual stuff too to boot pumping out dabble babies you know its strength isn't just how far it pushes these envelopes but also the quite dreamlike atmosphere and non-linear structure to the story things suddenly shifting in scenes and all around in time that constantly catches you off guard and keeps you on your toes it does become confusing and difficult to track just what is real or a dream or perhaps it's all a dream in a way as even the end leaves us with a kind of off-put and inconclusive feeling so...

and what it reveals about arda's grander purpose painting around the belongings of a young boy's room he wakes up eyelids fluttering he hears groaning outside what sounds like his parents having sex and plants his ear on the door for a better listen and yeah they're definitely getting down in there he almost goes for the handle but stops himself and tiptoes into the living room there's static on an old tv that he turns off spotting someone lurking nearby in the shadows a sudden red light washes over his face and the cloaked figure steps towards him its gnarled arm reaching out he frantically runs to his parents door furiously banging on it and shouting for his mom the opening scene as we come to understand is actually a nightmare of this young lad and this kind of bl

of reality and dreams is something that will become increasingly important as the story unfolds we move on to a foggy rural restaurant a police van parked out front we passed through the back into the interior honing in on a photo of our main group of police pals arm and arm and smiling a dark-coated...

enters and joins in on everyone's laughter things turning a bit awkward they ask what he's laughing at oh just you know you guys were laughing and detail is a story yavas thinking that he's accusing him of being homosexual and someone i guess his dad steps in asking them to take it easy safy is not looking good and rushes out with his hand over his mouth blowing chunks in the bathroom sink they decide that it's time to leave and the kid mudders if only they weren't cops pissing off yevo's again things get heated and the boss steps in taking davis gun away and encourages him to do whatever he wants to a bit taken aback he reiterates hit him already show me your moves he tells him wow my boss wants you to hit you and headbutts him the two tussling on the floor he gets the upper hand punching him mercilessly on the ground the takeaway of this whole sequence to me is while obviously a tight-knit group of friends they're not exactly angels betting sleeping with prostitutes even the boss allowing yahus to beat the out of some kid just for kicks not really a good look i gotta say they're all sinners in a way in the bathroom safie is confused by a frog there and goes to flick it away he straightens himself out looking at his reflection seeing the same person there behind him he gets wide-eyed and screams insanely drawing the other's attention they ask safety if he's okay grumbling he's fine and can even drive boss remzy suggested he get...
some rest which offends him he's been driving since he was four years old the restaurant sign erratically blinks as they vanish into the darkness when we return inside seeing it's quite a mess but what is much odder is that it appears completely empty as though the kid and father just poof went up and vanished into thin air they're still worried about safety him wiping sweat from his brow he put some hot beats on the radio and everyone really gets into it singing and dancing along together really establishing their warm camaraderie i mean they probably hang out all the time and i'm gonna imagine there's not like too much crime going out here in the middle of nowhere or perhaps i spoke too soon a call coming in on the radio asking for backup at a nearby neighborhood appo chirping back that they're on the way safely is familiar with the particular neighborhood and positive that he knows the way apple thinks he's heard of it too both having heard tale of there when they were kids nasty stories it turns out appo knowing that it's famous for having many shrines there they're confused why there would be so many nasty stories with a bunch of shrines around but regardless if he knows for certain that it's a bad place still driving down a small road later it appears they're lost safety baffled as they've been on the road for 10 minutes already but he isn't familiar with it and the radio ain't working either but appo notices he...
can receive signal but gets nothing back safee is shocked by someone crossing the road and slams on the brakes telling the others he saw a stark naked man run by but no one else saw him they shout out to the bushes threatening you boss star balls will rip yours off arda eyes something strange on the side of the van a series of fresh scratches everyone becoming a little on edge they all come to another strange sight a pile of frogs in the middle of the road chuckling oh must have been the frogs that he saw what do they all do just jump together to hit the van or what either way they figure it's best to get the hell out of here a doubtful yavis asked if he really saw a guy say if he leaning back guessing it was just a frog or whatever after all and when turning back this time there is definitely a man there crashing right into him s

ending

the van swerving off the road into a riverbank suddenly we're back to the restaurant arda and rimsey sitting separately from the others having a chat that further establishes the importance of dreams artist tells him about how his father had his name come to him in a dream when he was handed him as a baby he knew his name would be arda as though his name was actually ordained by or came from something else entirely the rookie admits that he has a secret but doesn't want him to tell the others bringing up a childhood friend of his who said that when his father died he was able to see his soul leaving his body no one else did but he...
was certain of what he saw so he and arta made a pact that whoever dies first will appear to the other as a spirit his friend took his leave seeing him get on a ferry back home but arda found himself restless afterwards that night he had a dream of people all around him glaring at him feeling that strange sensation that can come from fearing something in a dream koskinen broke through the crowd and held out his hand telling his friend to not be afraid he woke up soaked in sweat but was actually still dreaming so a dream within a dream already which is the same as the opening nightmare now understanding that that was a young arta that we saw he goes to the door but the sounds suddenly stop as though the people on the other side also disappeared when turning off the tv he remembers that he could feel something in his room thinking that it was his friend but admitting the thought of him there was frightening when going to bang on the door he woke up for real this time that afternoon his mom received a call that his friend had been hit by a car that night and according to her later arda could not function for 10 whole days but he says that he doesn't remember this he kept having that same dream including this morning as well and thinks that it feels as though he could actually still be dreaming hmm could be remzy has something to say too that he's been wanting to tell him since he has put in his care if only things could stay that way he says cryptically he asked arda if...
he sees anyone else in the room the guys of course he responds but when looking back they're all gone he clarifies to look around again but not physically asking what else he feels the lights go dark and he looks over his shoulder seeing someone there who's that he gasps remzy telling him this is the first time anyone else but him has seen these things this seems to indicate that these are dream based demons or something of that ilk he looks up to the ceiling and it starts to rain down blood it starts pulling out of his hands growing onto a full-on fountain splashing all over the table the gnarled hand returns reaching for him as the ceiling comes entirely loose he backs up and falls into a body of water a giant pair of hands reach in he then finds himself seemingly awake back at the riverbank right after the accident where we left off they then encounter a group of frog hunters including one guy laughing at them for falling in the river yavis loses it as usual appo is confused by what they ran over they heard noises and everything but there is no sign of a body apple bemoans there's a situation no radio no phone and a van rimsy asks the locals where they are and it turns out they wound up exactly where they were trying to go hmm how about that huh they're told insyagak is just beyond the grove 200 meters away not quite trusting him they demand that he takes them there the lady pipes up maybe they should sit and rest for their own good but well if you got work...
to do then go do it appo was like what the hell is wrong with you people getting the gang together and they head off they come to a mossy abandoned building seeing there's an empty cop car already on the scene assumingly who called in on the radio as for the building their guide informs them that back in the ottoman days it was a police station but now no one comes here anymore apo asked safi how he heard about the place reiterating that he heard about it as a kid everyone wants to check in on their guy leaving rimsey and arda alone he stops him putting a hand on his shoulder assuring him don't worry i have the key to all of this the key huh getting all cryptic again bro they cautiously approach the front and the place has definitely seen better days also seeing a peculiar kind of hair-like growth everywhere ever nervous energy safety feudally tries the other car's radio and can't find the keys flipping out the boss grunts for him to calm down asking how their national anthem begins he nervously sings fear not interrupting well there you go dude get it together the local guy bolts cursing to the police as you please fair enough the time has come to make their entrance squeaking through the front doors they immediately are overwhelmed by a foul stench but don't see much around looking untouched for many years although as they continue deeper they find a hanging hair thing that appears more designed perhaps like a talisman of some sort one's foot...
squishes into the earth seeing some blood there as well they then find a collection of eggs covered in ornate and intricate writings they pour one out full of blood rimsey follows a rhythmic pounding sound coming to the other officer facing away banging his head on the wall he calls out asking who he is seeing he really messed his forehead up him just kind of groaning back he orders javas to check his id but they find nothing on him he gets in his face you called for backup what is going on here he just stares down tears welling in his eyes they get safety to escort him back to the car everyone like me dude what happened to him but they keep pressing on regardless peering over the railing there's quite a few floors down almost as though they are desc

ending

further down into hell itself in a sense yava stops groaning it's pitch black he's not going any further rimsey tells appo to come along and he can stay back here with arda but he wants to join them too seeing only their flashlight beams in the darkness as they go further down yavuz now all alone is even more spooked and is forced to follow after despite his fears safety is still attempting communication with a guy but he is unresponsive they're suddenly stopped by a frog in their path that hops away just like in the bathroom and come to a frightening sight what looks like a chained up woman another jamming their head into a plate eating and gore everywhere he trains his light around seeing more chained and...
bagged up people all over the place he's overwhelmed dropping his gun and they attack him screaming in terror as he's taken away oh boy things went from zero to 100 real quick round here the others come to another room seeing a setup of candles on a box along with a book laid out in the middle finding more eggs and masks and all kinds of weird art of finding almost scientific looking diagrams of strange and disturbing physical formations and another from what it appears to be humping the other i mean that's a big giant demon dick right there's more saran wrap bodies with buckets underneath to catch the blood then seeing a long-haired person busy chopping someone up another nearby busy with their own body apple slowly gets closer surprised by another person appearing behind him with a sledgehammer and bashes him right on top of the dome yobo screams and runs the apparently blind women take notice yelling fairly wielding massive butcher knives it's instant chaos art of firing randomly screaming for remzy to run a horde of the creatures running on all fours in hot pursuit after them they catch up to yavis dragging him away and around a corner he loses ramsay arda puts his hand on the wall and is strangely teleported back to his childhood home and it's becoming more and more apparent that this is really his story and perspective we are following as the line between reality and dreams blurs further he sees his younger self he shouts and the boy turns to...
face him and then the figure reaches out his hand and little arda this time goes into his embrace taken away into his room the door slamming shut he then is back at the restaurant choking down water feeling that he was about to pass out rimsy tells him to take it easy you still have a long way to go sort of see me to act as his guide and away to all this wacky going on he's confused where am i what am i doing he's told not everything has a clear answer framing it as tonight we're at a crossroads maybe just you and me just you or all of us thinking that they were actually summoned here tonight and that there was no actual call for backup rimzy brings up that he used to see these strange dream demons as a child and brought it up to his grandmother she told him that it was someone looking for something so it will always keep wandering he believes that they are in fact being haunted and that arda must feel this too and can relate as it has been happening to you as well since you were a child there's a flash of the arm and he shuts his eyes appearing to float back in the room behind the table he's in back at the old building the gang all chained up seeing out of focus dancing flesh all around them as he regains consciousness there's a bunch of these guys growling and bopping up and down in unison a person with straw-like hair emerges known as the master creep he claps everyone turning silent and bowing in response the leader of the group the father aka baba...
comes down a spiral staircase another underling bringing him a bowl he places his hands in the water to wash and pats it gently over his bald head yavis frantically yells out who are you we're the police they don't respond getting more aggravated what you don't have a tongue you son of a he slowly approaches him shrouded in darkness and tell right up on him revealing his quite frightening visage he chuckles in a demonic tone informing him that they are here to join us tonight and that we are here to welcome them the best way they can oh well it has been a wonderful welcome so far thank you so much it's so gracious of you but whatever it is i don't think i want it though can i just get the heck out of here please as the father goes on he seems to illuminate why it is that reality and dreams and everything have been so fluid tonight saying that on a night like tonight the doors are open and all the realms are united we are all in this chamber together one of these realms appears to be hell itself saying that hell isn't a place that you go but as a place that you carry with you at all times he humbly states that they are only their companions on the road that fate has chosen for them and tonight if fate put you first among the creatures we are going to the herd what the takeaway seems to be here is that as rimsey posted to arda earlier they were actually summoned to this place and essentially they are being punished for their respective sins and we do...
recall back in the opening at the restaurant that pretty much everybody did something that could be considered a sin yet importantly not arda the father approaches appo who starts opening his eyes giving him the once over and here's where things start getting a bit more grisly so close your eyes peeky boop the other followers all start moaning he digs his claw like nails into his gut savoring the blood licking it from his fingers he slices deeper in a line spilling his intestines and just for funsies i'd imagine starts pulling them out until they splatter on the floor a post sputtering his last breath yellow's crying what have you done bobo sure is him you did as you sleep and resurrect as you wake up so fear not yeah we just guided your friend get over it dude he'll come back as he slept anyway rather than appearing that a gruesome death is their only option the father appears to be potentially listening gavis to his horde of followers he pulls out a stool getting right in his face and asking his name he shouts back we are the law the father smiling back you think your law is here again asking him his name he screams yeah miss damn it he offers that he looks like a tough young man tough but scared he monotones the human soul is corrupt and only worships power continuously looking for new things to worship because it has boundaries drawn by its masters perhaps he's even referring to the boundaries of our reality itself as the father offers an alternative...
solution stop worshiping the power and become one with the cosmos he asked if he's ready to give his worldly eyes and open them to what's beyond um do i really have a choice here baba puts his head down chanting the master creep handing him a rudimentary knife he places the knife on his forehead again asking to open his mind don't do it he begs keeping his eyelids shut tight he puts the knife right at his eye yavas he whispers and he instinctively opens them and he jams the knife and really digging it in there tearing his eyeballs to shreds as everybody helplessly watches he goes ahead and licks the blood too for good measure and asks to open the eyes of his heart french kissing his eye sockets the creep giving him his very own blindfold great you're part of the gang now too pretty easy initiation right good team we got here of course joining such an elite group isn't as simple as getting your eyes gouged out you gotta put in the work the father ominously stating let's begin the creep opens the door to a back room and re-emerges with a woman in a skull mask on all fours and chained up they drag a sobbing and broken yaves to her the father ordering show us you're the right passenger the creep literally does the work for him lifelessly humping the woman as duty requires chanting to open your mind he uncomfortably finishes it up and falls to his knees in anguish baba grabs him by the sides of his head and is disappointed he's still not opening his...
heart you gotta be wide open or it's not good he freaks out spasming and falls to the ground suddenly motionless a spider crawling out of his mouth well looks like he couldn't hang with the cool cats after all yavis he failed his test of faith in embracing the beyond even though it's way up and weird too bad i guess you're dead also the appropriate punishment because of his weird prostitute story told earlier i guess that's why this happened to him he goes to arda croaking the honor might be his rimsy growls to come to him he's just a kid and the father fetches his stool smushing their faces together he starts chanting reaching out for his eyeball scooper oh boy here we go again he places a dot of blood on arda's third eye but his attention is turned back to remzy thinking he thought it was him initially but in fact both are passengers here as we early remember in the dream between them ramsay mentions he's been seeing these demons throughout his own life kind of like peeking into this different hell reality that actually exists all around us artists had the same thing going on with him while assuming most people would never actually see these things in fact in particular with our little demon dude here baba is known in turkish folklore for being a dream demon with a focus on snatching little kids just as we saw an artist's childhood nightmare and perhaps even his old pal that suddenly died was taken by the same entity it all seems that in...
connection to that childhood nightmare baba has had an eye and a sense on arda knowing that rimsy could help him and thanks to him he's ready to understand he takes a knife and brutally slit ramsay's throat rubbing the blood on his head bathing in it in a way with only arda left the father takes his head in his hands we see the road and goal he says outside the creep is with the chained up woman the lady plopping out a little bundle of joy jackpot and that was quite quick too pretty efficient when it comes to making these hell babies i suppose arda opens his eyes now at the restaurant and he peers over seeing rimsey bleeding out he rushes to his side and rimsy reminds him of what they discussed in their earlier dream conversation with his childhood pal and appearing to him in a dream if they died without scaring them they're still being watched he's here man he's here arder cries don't be afraid he chokes i have the only key in this life and it's yours now remember as ramsay also reassured his nephew way back before they entered the building he tells him i have the key to everything arda retrieves a literal key from the cut and rimsy's neck right as the guy comes up everything ends but begins anew we hear an arda jams the key right into the hole the father screaming the light's pulsing they flash back into the hell cavern all the followers and presumably others that pass the initiation screaming and flipping their lids and arda gets himself...
free just to make sure that this guy is taken care of he grabs his ceremonial stool and absolutely bashes the out of his brains with it blood exploding all over him the others appear upset at the destruction of their leader he wipes away his face and screams arda gets to his feet triumphantly the others all reach out to him and he crawls right over them to the staircase finding himself outside in front of the building he laughs in relief that he made it slamming the ground in pure joy that he survived he makes out onto the road seeing a van rapidly approaching and screams it plows right into him and they crash into the river tying back to when our gang crashed into a man before they even entered the evil building back then during the crash as far as reality concerned things were all over the place it was already at that you know dream within a dream like inception thing going on and the last shot further establishes this as we see the van starting to fill up with water this time it is completely empty everyone has vanished in contrast to earlier where ardo was saved from the river by the others this all seems because as the father said on this particular night all realities have converged on themselves hell is within us and all around us in a sense like a reality and dreams appear to be another kind of reality as well in retrospect we really can't trust anything we see as being purely unaltered reality what it really feels like our story is about at its backbone is...
arda's pov on everything as we are essentially along for what he is going through and piecing things together it's as though he's kind of the savior of this whole setup destined to save the day and destroy this evil while the others are punished for their sins this seems to have all been building since he first met the demon back in his childhood nightmares and his dead friends and all that as we know terembaba is a nightmare demon which captures children it also really to me feels like baba is the one who summoned them and the others there knowing that the reality-b

evening was at hand and even from the beginning he was there in some way so for both of them this has been building since his encounter with the dream demons as a child in the end he is triumphant at least in a sense because the time loops shenanigans of him getting ram with the van make us go uh well so is he alive or what what the heck is even going on but again reality is fluid so my interpretation is that indeed he is killed but in the process takes out baba and this is really all about him fulfilling that ultimate grander purpose that brings us to the conclusion of this inning explain for a
