We don’t know too much about The Endless, the latest film from Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead, which receives its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on Friday. But we do know that our already very high interest in this third movie from the directors of the Lovecraftian love story Spring has been piqued even further by a just-released clip.
The Endless stars the filmmakers as brothers Aaron and Justin who, after escaping a cult as children, are living hand-to-mouth a decade later, until they receive a mysterious message in the mail that seems to be from their former “family”. Aaron insists they go back to investigate, and the protective Justin reluctantly agrees, concerned about returning to the place they worked so hard to leave behind. Once there, Aaron is quickly drawn back under the sway of the cult’s intensely magnetic leader Hal (Tate Ellington), while Justin remains uneasy. Soon inexplicable happenings begin to occur in the group’s desert encampment, and both Aaron and Justin are forced to conclude that the unsettling events seem to be in line with the cult’s strange and supernatural axioms.
