3. The Barbarian – Directed by Zack Cregger – Runtime 102 minutes

Another recommendation for lovers of horror or fun weekend hours is The Barbarian, a film about a young woman who arrives at her Airbnb late at night to find that a double-booked guest has already been booked there. But since she decides to let him stay, she should not be worried about him, but about what she will find that will later consume her while the holidays continue. The nod to classic horror films like Psycho and House is a notable addition to the long list of horror films that debuted this year and even within a month.

However, the film’s inaccurate history of the tribe fails to expose many of the misconceptions committed by the tribe in real life, leaving it as it is, a story that is layered with dramatization and fiction, but nothing from Hollywood! So enjoy the emotional performance and phenomenal production work.
