SF horror The Endless come to cinemas and Digital HD in June

27 April 2018

From acclaimed filmmakers Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead (Resolution, Spring) comes mind-bending, genre-blending indie gem The Endless.

When brothers Justin (Benson) and Aaron (Moorhead), former members of a "crazy UFO death cult", receive a mysterious videotape in the mail, they find an eerie calling card from their past inviting them back to attend an event called "The Ascension".

Despite Justin´s initial apprehension, the two agree to return for one day. At first, their old cult friends seem warm and welcoming, but things soon begin to turn strange and the two brothers find themselves drawn ever more into a vortex of bizarre rituals, strange messages, unseeable forces and sinister supernatural secrets that threaten to tear apart the very fabric of reality.

Directors Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead are on some of a roll – their critically acclaimed film Spring (which Empire called "one of the freshest genre offerings of recent years") got them onto Variety's 'Directors to watch' list in 2015, and received raves from Oscar-winning film- makers Richard Linklater and Guillermo del Toro (and which was surely an inspiration for his The Shape of Water). Their follow up, The Endless, is another dark and riveting tale of the unexpected that blends David Lynch´s Lost Highway with Martha Marcy May Marlene.

The directors themselves take the lead roles, showing they have talent to burn, and proving themselves remarkably assured actors as the likeable brothers plunged back into the cult they so wisely left all those years before. The film also stars bewitching genre star Callie Hernandez (Alien Covenant, Blair Witch), Tate Ellington (Sinister 2, The Walking Dead), movie veteran Ric Sarabia, and David Lawson as creepy cult member 'Smiling Dave´; as well as Peter Cilella and Vinny Curran reprising their roles from Benson and Moorhead´s innovative debut Resolution, which is niftily linked to this film.
