On my flight to California from the East Coast today I watched a pretty interesting movie that should appeal to the ATS family for a few different
reasons and that film was called: The Endless.
I dont want to spoil the plot line much but it hits on quite a few conspiracy type events including aliens, time loops, cults and other.
The acting is pretty solid while the effects can be a bit underwhelming at times.
I wouldn't quite call it a horror in the traditional sense but some people might find elements scary.
The film opens with a Lovecraft quote and for the most part successfully creates the same type of horror one feels in reading a Lovecraft story.
Similar to how All Along the Watchtower was integral to the BSG the song House of the Rising Sun (various covers of it) plays a part in the story
On Rotten Tomatoes it has a 94% ranking while most fan reviews of it put it at a 7 or so. I would agree with that.
Not the greatest, not the worst and a film that at least requires you to think a bit or else you can easily get lost.
Watched for the second time tonight after reading your recommendation. I had the same feeling I had the first time. Puzzling movie. Very dry. Not
really very satisfying as I had to think too much. Guess I am lazy. It was just okay to me.
