If there’s one thing that can be said of the directing duo of Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead, it’s that you never know exactly what you’re going to get from their features. But you can rest assured it’ll be something different and a spin on the genre we haven’t quite seen yet. A lot of people hailed their debut feature RESOLUTION as one of the strangest and terrifying films they’d seen in the last decade. Personally, I find their second feature SPRING, which is a Lovecraft creature feature by way of Richard Linklater, to be a masterpiece. So, count me in for whatever they do next.
The Tribeca Film Festival is going to get to see that movie first. Their latest THE ENDLESS makes its world premiere on Friday, April 22nd, with several more screenings to follow. The synopsis? THE ENDLESS is the story of two brothers who return to the cult from which they fled a decade ago, to find that there might be some truth to the group’s otherworldly beliefs. Below, we’ve got the first clip from the film. Have a look!
