Traveling to Detroit for a job interview, a young woman (Georgina Campbell) books a rental home. But when she arrives late at night, she discovers that the house is double-booked, and a strange man (Bill Skarsgård) is already staying there. Against her better judgment, she decides to spend the evening. Before long, mysterious sounds draw her to other parts of the house where terrifying discoveries prove there’s a lot more for her to fear than just an unexpected house guest. From 20th Century Studios and New Regency, Barbarian also stars Justin Long. Written and directed by Zach Cregger.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Barbarian is a dark, extremely creepy/gory horror movie (with satirical elements) about a sinister house in Detroit. It's skillfully made and entertaining but saddled with a disappointing monster. Gore scenes include a head being bashed against a wall until it's a bloody pulp, eye-gouging, an arm being ripped off and used as a club, a bloody gunshot wound, and more. You can also expect guns and shooting, a car crash, jump scares, etc. There's discussion and dialogue about rape and sexual aggression toward women, as well as dialogue about inbreeding. The monster appears as a mutated naked woman whose naked breasts are visible in many shots. Language is strong and frequent, with uses of "f--k," "motherf----r," "s--t," "f--got," and more. There's casual social drinking, and a character comes home staggering drunk from a bar (and then vomits in the morning).
