THE ENDLESS

  • Filmmaking duo Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead return with another elevated and fiercely original, genre-busting sci-fi horror film. Struggling in Los Angeles, two brothers receive a mysterious recording from the cult they escaped as children. Each remembering it differently — as either a UFO death cult or loving commune — they decide to visit, one for confirmation and the other for closure. They arrive to find that while eerily little has changed, everyone smiles just a little too often and the land is subject to its own natural laws. As stranger occurrences manifest, the brothers are led to an existential crossroads. Accomplished with an unsettling, minimalist aesthetic, this dark and entertaining film will be a particular delight to fans of Benson and Moorhead’s 2012 breakout RESOLUTION. – Malin Kan

  • Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead are the co-directing team behind the Tribeca Film Festival sleeper RESOLUTION (2012), and the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival success SPRING. In addition to directing, they have been known to take on additional roles, usually in writing, cinematography, editing and visual effects.
