The acclaimed duo’s latest sees release next month.

XYZ Films brings SOMETHING IN THE DIRT, the latest from Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead (THE ENDLESS, SPRING), to theaters November 4. The duo directed from Benson’s script, and the duo also star along with fellow filmmakers Sarah Adina Smith and Issa Lopez, plus Wanjiru Njendu, Vinny Curran and Jeremy Harlin. The synopsis: “Levi [Benson] has snagged a no-lease apartment sight unseen in the Hollywood Hills to crash at while he ties up loose ends for his exodus from Los Angeles. He quickly strikes up a rapport with his new neighbor John [Moorhead], swapping stories like old friends under the glowing, smoke-filled skies of the city. Soon after meeting, Levi and John witness something impossible in one of their apartments. Terrified at first, they soon realize this could change their lives and give them a purpose. With dollar signs in their eyes, these two eccentric strangers will attempt to prove the supernatural.”
