Barbarian: The Most Exciting Horror Movie of 2022

Spencer Joseph Bengtson

Barbarian is a 2022 horror movie about a woman who gets double booked for an Airbnb and finds a mysterious tunnel in the basement. It stars Georgina Campbell (Murdered by My Boyfriend), Bill Skarsgård (IT), and Justin Long (Tusk). Barbarian is one of the most refreshing and exciting horror movies I have ever experienced. It is an exhilarating ride of suspense and scares that will render you speechless. This movie lasts 103 minutes and is rated R for strong violence and gore, disturbing material, language throughout, and nudity.

The photographer claimed to have seen the two making out and engaging in romantic actions. The photos alone were far from incriminating and could easily have been interpreted as platonic in nature. However, fans had also begun to notice that Ned was seen less and less in videos and that his title card in the Try Guys intro was glaringly missing.
