San Diego Comic-Con audiences were “horror-fied” by 20th Century Studios’ and New Regency’s Barbarian movie at a special screening attended by writer-director Zach Cregger with a surprise appearance by cast member Justin Long.
A new clip from the film was also released and can be watched below. The film will open in theaters in the U.S. and Canada on Friday, September 9. You can still watch the trailer here.
In the Barbarian movie, a young woman traveling to Detroit for a job interview books a rental home. But when she arrives late at night, she discovers that the house is double booked, and a strange man is already staying there.
Against her better judgment, she decides to spend the evening but soon discovers that there’s a lot more to fear than just an unexpected house guest.
