Some people have horror stories about short stay accommodation, and the people behind upcoming horror outing Barbarian are seemingly no exception.

Written and directed by Zach Cregger (The Civil War on Drugs), it stars Georgina Campbell, Bill Skarsgård, Justin Long, Matthew Patrick Davis, Richard Brake, Kurt Braunohler and Jaymes Butler and, according to the trailer, comes from a producer of It, and an executive producer of The Grudge and The Ring

As for the story, here goes: “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.”

The trailer – just below – does paint it all in a cool, horrorific fashion, and is definitely enough to pique our interest. We’ll find out more when Barbarian hits Australian cinemas in August, without a single Conan in sight.
