Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available
Following their Lovecraftian modern cult classic Spring, acclaimed filmmakers Aaron Moorhead and Justin Benson return with the mind-bending thriller The Endless that follows two brothers who receive a cryptic video message inspiring them to revisit the UFO death cult they escaped a decade earlier. Hoping to find the closure that they couldn't as young men, they're forced to reconsider the cult's beliefs when confronted with unexplainable phenomena surrounding the camp. As the members prepare for the coming of a mysterious event, the brothers race to unravel the seemingly impossible truth before their lives become permanently entangled with the cult.
The Endless is Jimmy LaValle of The Album Leaf's second cinematic collaboration with the Los Angeles based directors. LaValle's approach to the score was to create an environment that was unique to the film's haunting suspense. He enlisted the help of fellow The Album Leaf collaborator's, David Lebleu and Matthew Resovich to provide eerie modular synthesizer and violin ambience respectively to the film's haunting score. Recording in his own Los Angeles studio, he used a variety of synthesizers to craft unique sounds that push the viewer deep into the films mystery.
"Working Justin and Aaron is great because they trust me to fully experiment with sounds and moods," LaVille notes. "We'll have a meeting beforehand to talk about direction and what they're envisioning for the film and I'll then get to work trying to create that sound." The film's characters had a relationship to the traditional folk song, "the House of the Rising Sun" that was a reminder of the camp. So LaValle collaborated with vocalist Emily Zuzik to create a collection of haunting versions of the song to use throughout the film.
