'Barbarian' Trailer: Check Into The Rental From Hell On August 31

What’s one way to freshen up horror’s haunted house and home invasion sub-genres? How about a double-booked rental home with a secret door in the basement that leads to a pit full of missing people?

That’s what the premise looks like for “Barbarian,” a new horror film coming this summer from 20th Century Studios and New Regency. The movie stars Georgina Campbell as a woman who discovers the rental she booked already has Bill Skarsgård staying there and decides to stay the night anyway. Of course, nothing good comes from this.
