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

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 »

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 »

User Reviews

 
Interesting, but not exciting.
28 June 2018 | by Top_Dawg_CriticSee all my reviews

The writing had flaws and the acting by Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead was too stale (they should've just stuck to directing). The 111 min run time felt like 180 mins. The pace should have been faster and the film edited down to 90 mins max. The Directing and cinematography however was very good and the overall story concept was interesting. Sure it's a low budget film, but most of the flaws wouldn't cost much to avoid/fix. It's a 6/10 from me.
