Following their 2014 Lovecraftian modern cult classic Spring, acclaimed filmmakers Justin Benson & Aaron Moorhead return with mind-bending sci-fi thriller The Endless.
Benson and Moorehead star as Justin and Aaron, two brothers struggling to put their earlier lives in a death cult behind them – until they receive a cryptic video message inspiring them to return to the cult, ten years later after they escaped it. Hoping to find the closure that they couldn’t as young men, they’re forced to reevaluate the potential validity of the cult’s beliefs when they are confronted with unexplainable phenomena surrounding the camp. As the members prepare for the coming of a mysterious event, the brothers race to unravel the seemingly impossible truth before their lives become permanently entangled with that the cult, and its mysterious isolated site in the woods.
A nominated hit at film festivals including AFI Fest, Sitges – Catalonian International Film Festival, and Tribeca Film Festival – where it was nominated for Best U.S. Narrative Feature – The Endless is an engaging and thoroughly original science-fiction mystery that thrills with grand ideas, shocking twists, impressive performances by a largely unknown cast, and some truly mesmerizing visuals to rival those found in movies with a thousand times its modest budget. Indie sci-fi doesn’t get much better.

“The Endless is a meta-commentary of the nature of storytelling and a self-examination of the creative mind, the film will likely have its audience questioning their perception of time as they look to sky for falling photographs.” – Shelagh Rowan-Legg, ScreenAnarchy
“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.” – Meredith Borders, Birth.Movies.Death.
“A demanding, rewarding picture with moments of unusual terror and awe, offering a science fiction/horror scenario on a literally cosmic scale which boils down to a study of a complicated sibling relationship.” – Meredith Borders, Birth.Movies.Death
“A rich banquet of mind-bending weirdness.” – Stephen Dalton, Hollywood Reporter
