After being a massive box office success and debuting on HBO Max to rave reviews, “Barbarian” remains one of the most notable horror films of the year.

And among those who gave the film a standing ovation was horror master Stephen King, who tweeted that the film was “amazing” and “incredibly good”.

Justin Long, one of the stars of the film, spoke to ComicBook.com about the praise received by King, who was moved and surprised by the master’s words.

“It makes me emotional. I grew up with Stephen King, I’m his biggest fan, it’s crazy. Sometimes I wonder if people I look up to have seen things I’ve been a part of and know who I am. And I’m proud, I mean, there’s no greater compliment than someone like that. I love his work. It’s a part of my life,” Long said.

On Rotten Tomatoes, “Barbarian” earned an impressive 91% approval rating.

Remember the reactions of the critics:

“O [diretor e roteirista] Zach Cregger stays one step ahead of the audience at all times, building a narrative full of surprises. (Globe and mail)

“The dark scenes of ‘Barbarian’ aren’t fun to watch, and your strong heartbeat will agree with that.” (Roger Ebert)

“Cregger introduces several genre clichés and turns them into real surprises. This production has a similar tone to ’80s horror movies and ’90s Wes Craven movies.” (New York Times)

“This film is extremely entertaining. It’s scary and funny, in addition to presenting several surprises. The birth of a new cult classic. (NYC Movie Guru)

“Cregger takes a grim idea and turns it into a terrifying horror tale, taking audiences by surprise with every shocking twist.” (Paste Magazine)

“It’s a fun and unexpected trip. He doesn’t reinvent the horror genre, but he uses his clichés cleverly. (one guy’s opinion)

Zach Cregger is responsible for directing and writing.

In the plot, a young woman traveling to Detroit for a job interview, rents a house. However, when she arrives late at night, she finds that the house is already rented by someone else; a strange man (Skarsgård) lives there. Ignoring her instincts, she decides to spend the night at the house, but soon discovers that there is much more to fear in the house than her unexpected guest.

The cast also includes Justin Long, Matthew Patrick Davis, Richard Brake, Kurt Braunohler and Jaymes Butler.
