After a minor brawl at the restaurant, the group head out and answer a call from another police unit who’ve gone missing at an abandoned building that used to be a police station. From here, things turn weird as the group find a gore-obsessed cult lurking in the depths of the hellish place as reality becomes indistinguishable from nightmare.

    Not bad – the first half is a bit slow – the last half is ok

    hmm still a little confused about the cult’s ideologies and whatnot but it was great movie over all and Mehmet Cerrahoglu’s character has some very interesting dialogue. I had to write down a few of his lines to remember for later. fantastic film.

    It wasn’t that bad went from 0 to 300000 as it certainly picked up the pace halfway and towards the end, I feel like they could of explored more into the backstory of the cult and its come up but other than that it was great!

    Most of the time is spent watching bald men talk about nothing in particular. Then in the last half hour when the action begins, the music and the actors’ reactions imply a lot more than what is actually delivered. Nice try but no cigar.

    Agree with the other person who commented about the first half being slow but I have to say this movie has been the only horror movie to leave me with
    this sort of psychological fear ( i have no other words to explain). I felt cery frightened but not like when watching something thats about ghosts or whatever. This was an intense dark feeling that stayed with me for days. I highly recommend ….

    My first Turkish film ever I think. Reasonably enjoyable, that little guy creeped me out. Some nice gore and atmospherics made it above average from others of this genre. Agree about the slow start, but it does build up nicely to a good finish.
