Storyline

This mind-bending thriller 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.

Trivia

The decision for Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead to also act in their film was largely an attempt to keep the budget down. See more »

Goofs

After Justin makes his dive into the lake and they are rowing furiously away from the location, the camera pans up to an aerial shot to show what is perhaps a silhouette of the monster/alien's image. For a second, you can see the shadow of an airplane, presumably the plane filming this shot. See more »

Quotes

Chris Daniels: You come to the woods with your hair combed forward gelled. You're all hunched over like some kind of James Bond with scoliosis trying to hide a boner.

User Reviews

 
Rather good to be honest.
28 March 2019 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

I'm almost pained to watch ant film that has the tag of horror on it, as the results are so often a disappointment. The Endless however, had something I've longed for, and a level of originality that seems so rare these days

You can see it isn't exactly huge budget, but that arguably helped, a reliance more so on acring and story, rather then on mind blowing special effects. Admittedly a few scenes looked a but poor, notably the appearance of the Mountain Lion, but others such as the rope, looked great.

I loved the concept of the film, and that it left us wondering so many points. Aaron Moorhead and Justin Benson did a great job.

I really enjoyed it. 7/10
