Wyatt Russell is awesome, although I feel a little dumb that I didn't recognize him as Kurt's son. Just a great all around movie.

Turns out, many of the reviews are fake. How do I know this? Because I looked at the profiles and saw that The Barn was the only movie these people reviewed. I even noticed several of them on IMDB.
