For the first time I’ve been granted press accreditation for the Toronto International Film Festival®, recognised as one of the largest and most prestigious film festivals in the world. So, I had the opportunity to watch and review a bunch of movies. This is my review of TIFF exclusive SYNCHRONIC (USA, Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead, drama/horror/sci-fi).
- 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.
