It really is a glorious time to be a horror fan. Once relegated to midnight broadcasts on cable channels and the whole of October at your local Cineplex, now it’s a whole new ballgame. In 2017 alone audiences had Get Out in February, Alien: Covenant in May and the fantastic It remake in October. This, of course, doesn’t include all the films available on streaming services like Hulu or Netflix, for general audiences, and Shudder, for those with more particular tastes. Though 2018 is still revealing itself cinematically, the John Krasinski-directed A Quiet Place opened this year’s SXSW festival – a clear clarion call that audiences are ready for their twisted tales to enter the main stage. Thus far, though, if you want your brain twisted properly, the films on the independent circuit should not be ignored. The latest release from directors Aaron Moorhead and Justin Benson – The Endless – fits the bill perfectly. The Endless is a supernatural-infused thriller with a tight story, masterful cinematography, and nubilous dialogue that’ll have you questioning everything from start to finish.
