in barbaric, a young woman travels to Detroit for a job interview and books a rental house. But when you arrive late at night, you discover that the house is twice booked, and a strange man is already staying there. She decides to spend the evening despite her better judgment, but soon discovers that there is much more to fear than just an unexpected house guest.
The film currently has 91% positive reviews on Rotten Tomatoes, and is one of the best-reviewed horror films of the year, watching every week adding screens across the country. While it won’t be a financial success on the lines of more established franchises, the independent nature of the premise and minimal acting mean it will certainly become a profitable venture for the studio, if only because audiences want to learn about the various ups and downs.
Despite the film’s critical and financial success, along with its storytelling potential, audiences shouldn’t expect to see writer/director Zack Krieger develop a sequel.
Cregger shared with ComicBook.com: “So there’s a big twist around the 40-minute mark and I’m always eagerly waiting for that moment. It’s my favorite moment.” “Barbarian 2, not mine. It won’t happen to me. Never say never, I could have a great idea tomorrow and be out of the races, but I doubt it.”
