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.

Did You Know?


Before Benson and Moorhead directed The Endless and Spring (2014), they broke onto the indie scene with their micro-horror Resolution (2012), which also had its world premiere at Tribeca, back in 2012. Some of the characters from Resolution appear in this film. See more »


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 »

User Reviews

Well written Sci-Fi Thriller for those who like to think.
24 February 2019 | by piratefemme-144-400028See all my reviews

Nicely paced reveals without actually giving any end-game full answers. Was really pleased with this. I'm not a horror fan, but a huge thriller buff and I appreciate tension, build, mystery, more tension, some nail biting, tossing in questioning of reality, and deeper meaning layered into the context. Yeah, some of the free-will questions are spoon-fed, but there are other western family/religion and political ideals being questioned as well. There is one quote in the film that really put the entire thing in a nutshell, but I don't want to give anything away. It got incredibly high rating everywhere I've looked except IMDb, so was suprised at 6.5 here. I assume its from people expecting a horror and being given a Sci-fi philosophical thriller and being miffed about it.
