The official synopsis for the film gives us an idea of the direction in which Barbarian is headed:

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 judgement, she decides to spend the evening, but soon discovers that there’s a lot more to fear than just an unexpected house guest.

Barbarian stars Georgina Campbell, Bill Skarsgård, Justin Long, Matthew Patrick Davis, Richard Brake, Kurt Braunohler, and Jaymes Butler. The film is written and directed by Zach Cregger, with Arnon Milchan, Roy Lee, Raphael Margules, and J.D. Lifshitz producing. Bill Skarsgård will executive produce, along with Michael Shaefer, Natalie Lehmann, Danny Chan, and Alex Lebovici.

Bill Skarsgård is Headed Back to Horror

Bill Skarsgård has essentially mastered the art of horror movies, appearing as Pennywise the Clown in the It franchise for two films. Although the movies received mostly positive reviews from critics and audiences, Skarsgård’s performance is regarded as one of the most iconic in the genre. He embodied the demonic clown with perfection, with Stephen King calling his performance “just amazing, it’s balletic, it’s so good,” in an interview with Yahoo following the release of It Chapter Two.

The actor will hope to replicate an equally terrifying role in Barbarian. However, it will be a monumental task to try and surpass the menacing Pennywise. Once again, audiences won’t have to wait much longer to see how Skarsgård fairs as a new, frightening villain in the film, with Barbarian hitting theaters on Aug. 31st.
