Horror Movie ‘Barbarian’ Set for Pre-Halloween Digital Release

Disney Media & Entertainment Distribution has set an Oct. 25 digital home release date for Barbarian, the horror film from 20th Century Studios and New Regency.

The film, from writer-director Zach Cregger and noted horror producer Roy Lee (The Ring, The Grudge, and It), will become available on all major digital platforms. Barbarian was released theatrically Sept. 9 and earned a domestic gross of more than $36.5 million.

The film is about a young woman who, upon arriving in 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 and Justin Long. 

Bonus features on the digital home release include the featurette “Behind Barbarian,” in which writer-director Cregger and the cast and crew discuss the horror elements that make Barbarian so scary, and four deleted scenes.
