After a video featuring Bill Skarsgard went viral on the internet, Barbarian was the talk of the town. Cregger wrote and directed the film for The White Kids U Know, which will be released on September 9th.

Tess Campbell stars in King Arthur: Legend of the Swords, a young lady who discovers a strange guy already in the Airbnb she's renting. Soon, Tess regrets her decision to stay as the house is filled with unexpected surprises than an unannounced house guest.

Barbarian has certain ridiculous qualities that make it difficult to navigate the horror/comedy lines with ease. However, it's the type of film you want to experience with people, which will provide its own experience.

Barbarian is a horror film based heavily on unexpected plot twists that are beyond your expectations, according to Frank Scheck of The Hollywood Reporter. He did not scupper the film's formulaic moments while highlighting some surprising plot twists.

Cregger, the director-screenwriter, has an obvious perverse grin in guiding his viewers through his weird twists and turns. If the ultimate revelations involving a truly terrifying individual (Matthew Patrick Davis, in a virtuoso turn) tend toward the formulaic, they do not diminish the overall effect.

Colliders Chase Hutchinson gave the horror film a B- rating because he felt the combination of ridiculousness and fear pushed the viewer's belief to a halt. The comedic moments ultimately deflate much of the tension upon discovering the unexpected twists:

It's a journey that combines surprise surprises with a dive into the unknown. What is discovered there isn't nearly as powerful as the actual journey itself, making for a mixed bag of horror and humor that rises above its weak points enough to keep them together.

The Guardian's Benjamin Lee gave the horror film a 2 out of 5 rating. He felt the twists and turns in the film were ineffective due to its excessive amount of comedy and neglect of the suspense and pseudo-commentary.

As we get transported to different periods, locations, and perspectives, Cregger's structure is less surprising, but interestingly bold until one realises such diversion is simply a means of distracting us from what is essentially a dismal monster film. Its competently made (Cregger may perhaps write better with a script he hasnt written) but curiously flat, and in recalling films from Dont Breathe to The People Under the Stairs, it only serves to illustrate how minimal this is.

Barbarian will be available in cinemas on Friday, September 9. Until then, you can watch Justin Long talk about the upcoming film. You may also check out our 2022 movie schedule to see what other horror films will be released this year.
