A few years ago there was little sci-fi horror flick called Resolution, the first film from filmmakers Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead. I checked it out recently after realizing it was a semi-prequel to their latest work, The Endless. Resolution was a strange, slow-burning movie that revealed itself to be based around dealing with repeating time-loops and the blurring of each new reality. I enjoyed the film, but I did not come anywhere close to understanding it. By contrast, The Endless not only expands upon these ideas, but gives greater context to what’s been happening across both films. It’s still strange and confusing, but in a more digestible way.

Halloween is around the corner and the horror genre is making a giant comeback with many independent films being released to larger theaters across the world. From the general consensus, horror is here to stay with many films and TV Shows using nostalgic elements to draw the audience in and never let them go. What makes these types of films compelling is the thought process, direction, practical effects, and originality. As a huge fan of this genre, I also really appreciate newer concepts and incorporating factual events into a film that will set itself apart from other movies that play it safe.
Estranged sisters – Kate and Angie – haven’t spoken since Angie went to college and left Kate to care for their ailing father. In a show of reconciliation, several years after moving out, Angie invites Kate to her bachelorette party held at a remote house booked on a home-sharing app. The women are unaware that by booking this house, they’re walking into a trap set in motion by a disturbed family of amateur killers who are out for blood to right a cosmic wrong. They soon become unwitting participants in a savage and often ridiculous life-or-death struggle that pits family against family, and past against present.
