Seriously, if you haven’t seen BarbaricI recommend streaming it with a HBO Max Subscription before reading further. It’s worth the surprises!

After Barbaric impressed at the box office last month, the horror film has already become available for streaming, leading to a whole new wave of viewers learning about its terrifying premise. It’s one of those movies where you just have to turn to someone to say WTF, and people take to Twitter to romp about the wild outing.

Barbaric is one of the highest rated movies of 2022 (we gave it a 4 out of 5 in our review), so obviously when it hit HBO Max, people were going to tune in. Here’s an accurate description of what it’s like to watch Barbaric:

The marketing for Barbaric for one was extremely intelligent. The trailer made it look like they were entering a very different movie than it actually is. For example, a lot of people probably thought Bill Skarsgård was going to be the bad guy after he played Pennywise in the THIS movies. Also, the actual creature lurking in this Airbnb basement is such an unexpected revelation.

Lots of conversations about Barbaric revolved around ridiculing the protagonists for entering the deep, dark basement of the Airbnb when there were clear signs of danger. But hey, if everyone was smart in horror movies, we wouldn’t have these nightmare scenarios. Often you don’t go into these situations looking both ways and doing all your research. This pretty much sums it all up:

Barbaric mostly received a lot of praise for its unexpectedness. The movie cleverly has two beginnings that bring two different characters into the same house (and they both strike completely different tones with the whole thing). Justin Long in particular brings comedy to the film after Georgina Campbell and Bill Skargard’s Tess and Keith started the film. Like another Twitter user praised:
