Barbarian ★★

Too cute and schematic to really be effective. Once it reveals what’s hiding in the dark, I became fully disengaged and that’s not counting an interlude that stops the film’s momentum. The film’s surprise is kind of really, really, really tired, design wise. And it’s sense of comedy undercuts any sort of tension. It wasn’t boring but I sort of wish we’d get less cynical exercises like this.
