The ‘extremely unpredictable’ horror movie that just got added to Disney Plus
One of the most acclaimed horror films of the year is now available to stream on Disney+.
It was a good year for the genre, both critically and commercially, with Nope, Smile, Scream, and even the extremely violent creepy cooking everything a fright.
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.
Clarisse Loughrey, writing for The Independentsaid Barbarian’s many twists “are a central part of its funhouse charm”, as it “constantly turns the tables on its audience’s expectations”.
The film has a Rotten Tomatoes score of 92% from 194 reviews.
