MOVIE NEWS – Bill Skarsgård is back in the genre as the lead in Zach Cregger’s horror film The Barbarian.
Bill Skarsgård returns to the horror genre with his latest film, Barbarian. The trailer shows a young woman, played by Georgina Campbell, travelling to Detroit to find her rented home. But when she arrives at the door, she is unexpectedly greeted by Skarsgård. The duo then share the house for a night of mysterious and disturbing events, with Skarsgård’s character leaving Campbell in imminent danger.
The trailer doesn’t give much away other than the glaring problems the night raises and the inevitable conflict the pair will share during their stay. We don’t know exactly what happens to Skarsgård; however, it’s clear that his short-term roommate is going to be quite scared. You can find the trailer and poster for Barbarian at the end of this article.
