At the end of May, I got on a school bus just as the sun was setting and was driven into the woods 20 minutes south of one of Austin's Alamo Drafthouse theatres. At a campsite tucked away off a walking trail, I saw one of the year's most disturbing films projected onto an outdoor movie screen. The next day, I asked director Trey Shults where he found the inspiration for the harrowing It Comes at Night, which hits cinemas today.
