THE ENDLESS First-Look: Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead's Intriguing Death Cult Movie

Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead made genre nuts swoon over the Frankensteinian affair that is their sophomore feature, Spring. The film, which tells the story of a young man who falls in love with a mysterious woman in France, is a worthy follow-up to the two's equally unnerving psychological thriller, Resolution. The filmmaking duo has announced previously that they are working on a third feature called The Endless, of which little information has since been offered, except that the two are set to direct and star in it.

We now know that Benson and Moorhead are to play the role of "two brothers who return to the death cult from which they fled a decade ago, to find that there might be some truth to the group’s otherworldly beliefs". That sounds right up the two's alley; it is worth noting, too, that religion, or one resembling it anyway, is a logical next-step after touching issues of addiction and grief in their two previous films.

The news comes fresh from Entertainment Weekly, who along with plot details shared a handful of still images from the film, which you can see below. The Endless is slated for a 2017 release.

    I didn't know Justin Benson was a reader/poster here. Just wanna say, we need more people like you and Aaron Moorhead making movies. Big thanks to you guys. Now go do that voodoo that you do so well.

  • Justin Benson

    This is one of my favorite film web sites, actually. And THANK YOU! We're doing non-stop voodoo right now that won't let you down.

  • It takes place in Italy, not France. And what exactly is Frankensteinian about Spring? Lovecraftian yes, but I'm struggling to see an obvious connection to Frankenstein. With all due respect, have you actually seen it?

  • GarthD

    My guess would be that it's a reference to the fact that it's two genres mashed together. Frankensteined, as it were.

  • Spring was filmed in Polignano a Mare, Italy (not France).

  • Justin Benson

    This is correct. A couple of scenes at the beginning were shot in San Diego and Los Angeles, and a little bit in Rome and some tiny towns just outside Polignano a Mare. The plane is shot is Aaron's living room.

    I thought SPRING took place in Italy, not France? They even poked fun at an American tourist not knowing the difference...

    Ooooohoohoo, this is gonna be good.
