Scary!
18 August 2020 | by marcuswatson-40103See all my reviews

This is a very good expose of the indoctrination of future fascists in this country and the incubation of toxic masculinity. The only bright spots in this otherwise bleak peak at our future are Steven Garza and Rene Otero. They are two young men of integrity.
