But there was one that received huge buzz after its US premiere – those who had seen the film urging people to come in without even watching the trailer.

The movie is Barbaricwritten and directed by Zach Cregger.

It stars Georgina Campbell as a woman who shows up at an Airbnb to find a man, played by Bill Skarsgård, is already there, and they’ve accidentally been double-booked. To say more would spoil the film’s many surprises.

Barbaric premiered at San Diego Comic-Con in July, two months before its theatrical release for which it grossed $45 million on a $4.5 million budget.

Those in the UK had to wait another month for a cinema release, but now, a month and a half later, it’s been added to Disney Plus.

The film was called “unpredictable wildy” by Empirewith The Observer calling it “one of the most efficient coolers of the year”.
