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.Written by

As the Ascension approaches, the phases of the third moon go from waning crescent to waning gibbous to full, which is the opposite of the actual order of the moon's phases. (Although this could be an error, it could also be a deliberate reflection of the supernatural or otherworldly nature of the rest of the film.) See more »
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
