[A] rich banquet of mind-bending weirdness.

September 25, 2017 | Full Review…

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."

Other movies will throw together the leads as brothers for convenience, for quick, manufactured pathos. Here, you don't for a second doubt the depth of Justin and Aaron's bond, fractured as it is.

March 19, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The monsters here include the repetitive rigour of late-era capitalism and Lovecraftian beasts, and the mind-bending story is conveyed through the strained frame of family as the duo struggle with their bond.

... akin to a 'blockbuster of the mind'

March 2, 2018 | Rating: 16/20 | Full Review…

Although parts of the film seem almost too clever by half, Moorehead and Benson do a marvelous job sustaining an atmosphere of eerie dread.

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.
