Endless, The (15)

Thriller, Science Fiction

A sci-fi thriller in which two brothers, having fled a UFO cult, discover more to the cult's beliefs than they once thought.

The critical consensus

An effective, micro-budget sci-fi horror, that makes up in confidence and competence for what it lacks in frills.

****(*)James Dyer, Empire Online, 25/06/2018

Benson and Moorhead’s sophisticated sci-fi/horror features minimal SFX but more ideas than a TED talk. Uncanny, and uncannily good.

****(*)Matt Glasby, Total Film, 25/06/2018

When, halfway through the film, there is already temptation to give up on even trying to figure out what’s happening behind the narrative, the rest of the movie really can feel ‘endless’.

***(*)(*)Matthew Keeley, The Wee Review, 25/06/2018

While it may seem to concern itself with extraterrestrials, The Endless proves to be more about a very human kind of alienation, of the desperate importance of finding one's true place on Earth. Fittingly, repeated viewings are sure to reap further rewards.

****(*)Nikki Baughan, The List, 25/06/2018

This weird mystery thriller about two brothers visiting the cult in which they were raised has a stark originality.

***(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 28/06/2018

A lack of credibility would normally be enough to sink a high-concept indie picture like this – it undermined the tonally similar Another Earth. But here, the atmosphere and unnerving vignettes get under the skin. Like the brothers, we find it hard to escape the film’s sinister embrace.
