Biography

En 2013, Benson a écrit le scénario du film fantastique Résolution et l'a co-réalisé avec son partenaire cinématographique, Aaron Scott Moorhead. On les retrouve tous deux pour le sketche de l'anthologie V/H/S: Viral pour le segment intitulé Bonestorm.

En 2015, ils ont mis en scène une romance fantastique se déroulant en Italie, Spring, que Benson a également écrit. La première a eu lieu en 2014 au Festival international du film de Toronto et a été publiquement salué par les réalisateurs Richard Linklater et Guillermo del Toro. Cette même année, Variety plaçait Justin Benson et Aaron Moorhead dans la liste des dix réalisateurs d'avenir.

En 2017, il a écrit, co-réalisé et joué aux côtés de Moorhead dans un film qui mélange la science-fiction et le fantastique, The Endless, qui est présenté au Festival du film de Tribeca. En juillet 2017, The Endless reçoit deux prix au Festival international du film fantastique de Neuchâtel, le Prix Imaging The Future meilleur production design et le Prix du jury de la critique internationale. Le film sera distribué en Amérique du Nord en 2018 par Well Go USA.

Michael Danube, a professional graphic designer who lives in the city with his wife, receives an email that contains a video of Chris Daniels, his former best friend. Chris has become a junkie, and his behavior is delusional and erratic. A map is included with the video. Despite the objections of his wife, Michael decides to make one last attempt to save his friend from drug addiction. Michael promises to return after one week and follows the map to a run-down house, where he hears Chris ranting and shooting a pistol. Michael cautiously approaches the house and announces himself. Chris reacts positively and invites him in, ranting about various subjects. Michael tries to convince Chris to go to rehab, but Chris refuses. Michael uses a stun gun to stun Chris and handcuffs him to a pipe. When Michael returns from a shopping trip, he sees Chris trying to cut through his handcuff with a toothbrush. In the morning, Michael uses the stun gun again to stave off an attempted attack by Chris.
