Movie Info

Following their Lovecraftian modern cult classic SPRING, writer/directors Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead star as brothers who receive a mysterious message inspiring them to pay a visit to the cult they escaped as children. As unsettling events and phenomena begin to occur, the brothers are forced to question whether the cult's supernatural beliefs might not be entirely made up - and if, now that they've returned, they'll be allowed to leave again.

[A] rich banquet of mind-bending weirdness.

While not flashy enough to rival blockbuster science fiction offerings at the box office, "The Endless" ought to delight those who like having their imaginations tickled by projects such as "Another Earth" and "The OA."

There's a neat premise at the heart of The Endless and its characters feel real enough to keep you engaged even as the plot gets more peculiar.

THE ENDLESS is the purest vision we could ever hope to see from two filmmakers who are as comfortable examining the mysteries of the universe as they are the intimacies of our own hearts.

The looping twilight zone that [Benson and Moorhead] have created is both a familiar retread of previous work & a springboard for something genuinely, unnervingly original...

The Endless is a rewarding, engaging cinematic genre experience, and much more than the sum of its parts.

Audience Reviews for The Endless

They say 'fear of the unknown, is the greatest fear there is'. Well, The Endless is that type of film that uses the unknown to their benefit to increase the fear and underlining mystery of the film. Centered on two brother trying to reconnect with their cultist upbringing with a very H.P. Lovecraft inspired context. It's an excellent film that uses it's thought provoking plotting to it's surreal nature of the story and the philosophical nature of the cult members to provide a great sense of drama, conflict and mystery. More of less they say 'minimalism is more' and here it's just about right, filled with terrific writing, acting directing and cinematography, 'The Endless' is a film that should be seen by a large number of audiences to appreciate as one of this year's best. Luckily enough I was able to see it at the Melbourne International Film Festival when I did.
