It looks like someone booked Barbarian for a digital release. Just in time for Halloween in 2022 to boot. They’ve even got a brand new trailer just for this digital release. You can check it out below:
This Horror Release is Single Booking Only
20th Century Studios (which basically means Disney) and New Regency are proud to announce that they’re going to release Barbarian digitally with that 60 second YouTube trailer above. This critically acclaimed horror film from director Zach Cregger (Miss March, The Civil War on Drugs, The Death and Return of Superman) and producer Roy Lee (The Ring, The Grudge, It) is described by David Fear of Rolling Stone as “The best horror movie of the year” for good reason. If the trailer above didn’t creep you out, then perhaps the synopsis below will:
“Arriving in Detroit for a job interview, a young woman 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 judgement, she decides to spend the evening, but soon discovers that there’s a lot more to fear than just an unexpected house guest. From 20th Century Studios and New Regency, Barbarian stars Georgina Campbell, Bill Skarsgård, and Justin Long. Written and directed by Zach Cregger.”
Barbarian will release on “all major digital platforms” on October 25, 2022. The digital release will be in 4K UHD, HD, and SD; so you have a wide variety of viewing options no matter what kind of TV, computer, or internet connection you have. Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be any way to preorder this horror film as of this writing. You might want to check out the major digital platforms like Google Play and Vudu in the near future to see if such a preorder pops up. Or, you can tune back in to THS a bit later to find out if we do.
Barbarian: Bonus Features
The digital release of Barbarian doesn’t just include the film though. To sweeten the deal, 20th Century Studios and New Regency are adding a few bonus features to the release. The list of bonus features doesn’t amount to much, since it’s basically a behind the scenes featurette and a bunch of deleted scenes that didn’t make it into the film. However, if you liked the film, then these bonus features might be a treat for you. Check out a list of them below:
