_Barbarian_ is such a twisted and incredibly unique film. Going into this film, I thought I had a pretty good indication of how this was going to go down and was ready for a fun cheesy horror film that follow a pretty generic pattern, but boy was I wrong. Almost the entirety of the trailer was just the first act, and it left me seriously stumped at where this movie was going.
That sense of unknown really added to the thick tension that this movie brought throughout. There is a paranoia that occurs with both the audience and the main character. You never know who to trust, even if they give you all the indications that they are trustworthy.
In today’s horror cinema, it is rare to see a movie so reliant on building tension rather than just jump scares galore. Not to say that this film does not have any jump scares, but they are there to enhance and bring a crescendo to the long scenes of tension and dread.
Overall, the acting was brilliant. Georgina Campbell was fantastic. Bill Skarsgård was a bit awkward at times, but I do think that was by choice, as his actor was a kind awkward sweetheart. Justin Long stole the show. His character added a bit of lightness and someone who the audience can really root against.
The movie does slightly fall of the rails in the third act, it does not take away from the experience that is Barbarian. In fact, I think it almost enhances the film as something truly unique.

**While for many horror fans, Barbarian might be compelling and unique, I found it decent but more strange and uncomfortable than scary and not as remarkable as others seem to think.**
Barbarian had heavy hype and big expectations before I checked it out. And while it didn’t blow my mind, I can see why many film aficionados would rate it more highly. It had a fresh Jordan Peele-type feel to a story that has been done many times before. I enjoyed the different stories coming together and the obvious nods to tropes of people ignoring clearly dangerous situations and red flags. However, while it had some fun elements, I wasn’t as impressed as many reviews suggested I should be. Definitely not a bad movie by any means, but some of the horror is just strange, and the creature is so bizarre that it’s less scary and more awkward at times.
Weak climax, brilliant first 90 minutes
Barbarian is that rare breed of horror- visceral- would make your stomach drop and heart beat faster + unpredictable- would make you use your grey cells to prophesize, often wrongly, where it is headed.
For 90 minutes of its 100 minute run time, it is a combination of the two. I didn’t like the way it ended, but that doesn’t take away from the experience that it is.
There is nary a dull moment, with the pace relentless. It really got to me at some places. There were many scenes where I felt like shouting to the characters to stay away from dark places. I have been watching horror fairly regularly this month, because of Halloween, and this has been the experience that I have been chasing.
The casting is spot on with Justin Long taking the cake.
The director could have tuned up the gore quotient just a little bit to make the climax more memorable.
Come for a night, stay forever.
I had really low expectations when it started because because it begins exactly the same as “Weekenders” did which really wasn’t a great movie, different genres though. Over half an hour in I still wasn’t sure where exactly the movie was heading, but when things turn dark the thrill starts, old school horror-esque.
My only complaint, which unfortunately seemed like it was done deliberately, is that once the horror starts, the movie introduces a completely new character arc and you have to wait for it to build up all again, it purposely teases the eerie stuff which is frustrating because you know the good stuff’s coming but not yet. And it does this several times, keeps resetting which makes the second act seem off paced but it all comes together in the end.
It was a conventional horror like you’d remember in the 2010’s, not really prismatic or director trying to reinvent the wheel; it’s just people stuck trying to escape from something in a ‘haunted’ house. And I like how there was still logical explanation, albeit a disturbing one. A few details that weren’t explained, didn’t seem to have the time to as it tries to introduce all the characters properly.
The last act of the movie is all eerie, it however doesn’t climax as hard as I anticipated, thought they’d have more fight but it still did a pretty decent job and the finale scene was sensible end. Almost everything about the movie was better than I expected, I suggest going in blind.
