After enthralling festival audiences around the world since its debut at the Tribeca Film festival in April of 2017, distributor Well Go USA has announced The Endless will get a theatrical release on March 2rd.
Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead, directors of Resolution (2013) and Spring (2014), return with a slow-burning, low-budget indie film that dips into science fiction and psychological thriller territory. It explores themes of family and brotherhood on a backdrop of ancient cosmic horror.
Following their Lovecraftian modern cult classic SPRING, acclaimed filmmakers Moorhead and Benson return with this mind-bending thriller that follows two brothers who receive a cryptic video message inspiring them to revisit the UFO death cult they escaped a decade earlier. Hoping to find the closure that they couldn’t as young men, they’re forced to reconsider the cult’s beliefs when 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 the cult.
Benson and Moorhead directed, produced, and star in the movie as brothers Aaron and Justin Smith, who have very different memories of their time with the cult in Camp Arcadia. The cast also includes Callie Hernandez (Alien: Covenant) as Anna, the camp clothing designer, and Tate Ellington (Remember Me, Shameless) as the group’s unofficial leader Hal. The Endless, although completely enjoyable as a stand alone film, exists in continuity with Resolution and overlaps the previous movie with a key scene. As it opens with a quote from classic horror author H.P. Lovecraft, it promises to continue the strange and frightening Lovecraftian themes of Spring.
Nightmare on Filmstreet was able to catch the film at the Toronto After Dark Film Festival – read the eerily glowing review. You can also join the cult of The Endless’s facebook page to keep up with news before the release.
