The Endless - Decent Lovecraftian Indie

In my usual search through the garbage bin of Horror/Thriller I came across this rough gem on Saturday.

I wasn't searching for Lovecraftian, just a good story, but was pleasantly surprised to see the film open with the over-used quote:

"The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown"

Obviously that peaked my interest and skepticism both at once so I gave it a chance and am very thankful that I did.

It takes a while to get going. No tentacles, no gore (some blood), no tits and ass, just a really cool and weird tale. It oozes Lovecraft as far as I'm concerned. My favorite H.P. L. tale is Dream Quest if that helps put my opinion in perspective (this movie has no resemblance to that tale).

Good enough that I'm going to buy a copy. I know all Lovecraft fans tend to have their own tastes but I highly recommend you at least check it out since it's currently 'free' on Netflix.

To my fellow nerds, I present:
The Endless
