It goes without saying that this review will be filled to the brim with spoilers, so steer away from it if you haven’t seen Nicolas Pesce’s Piercing but read it carefully if you have and are confused/frustrated about its ending. If you want to know what all the fuss is about, please check my spoiler-free review of the movie.
I’ve been waiting to write this analysis and explanation piece for a while and now, over the course of three days and after rewatching the film twice, I’ve finally made it!
- This review will feature some spoilers in the paragraph THE ENDLESS – EXPLAINED
The Endless is a Sci-fi/mystery/horror movie written and directed by Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead, who also play the lead roles in the film: they play Justin and Aaron, two brothers who, a few years prior to the events we follow, escaped what they believed to be an insane cult (the Arcadia Camp). However, upon receiving a tape showing the cult members living great and peaceful lives, Aaron asks his brother to go there just for a couple of days, to get some closure.
