The Endless

The Endless ★★★

Despite its clear budgetary limitations and charmingly B-movie style performances, The Endless crafts a mostly compelling narrative with themes of free will and religion mixed with existential Lovecraftian horror elements. While this concept should be a perfect pairing (and it certainly does work most of the time), the end result is somewhat muddled and unfocused as the directors seem compelled to simultaneously over-explain the mysteries of its narrative while also not explaining enough for there to be a satisfying conclusion.
