How to watch Barbarian online in Australia
Checking in with Barbarian? The horror hit is streaming on Disney+ from the 4th of January 2023.
The typical Airbnb experience is a mixed bag. You never know what you're going to get; missing linen, no WiFi or a host that hangs around for an uncomfortable amount of time (true story). Thankfully, there are more positive experiences than negative but when it's bad, it can be really bad. Barbarian is the 2022 horror smash hit that asks the question: just how bad could it be? What starts with a double booking opens the door for a truly blood-curdling bed and breakfast experience.
As with most good horror movies, the less you know about Barbarian the better; in fact, maybe skip the trailer above altogether if you want to avoid spoiling the terrifying (and occasionally hilarious) twists that Barbarian has in store.
Here's how you can watch Barbarian in Australia.

What is Barbarian about?
As mentioned above, there are far too many spoilers that would ruin the Barbarian experience, so we'll keep the details vague. All you really need to know is the setup. While travelling for a job interview, Tess Marshall (Georgina Campbell) arrives late to her booked Airbnb, only to find Keith (Bill Skarsgård) already checked in and unpacked. Initially freaked out (and rightfully so), Tess eventually warms to Keith and accepts his offer to share the house for the night. As for what comes next? Well, plenty of horror and some wicked twists that will keep you guessing. That's all you need to know. Enjoy your stay.
What is Disney+
Disney+ is the premiere streaming service from the media juggernaut. It released in late 2019 and hit the ground running with popular original series like The Mandalorian and Wandavision, and has continued to pump out originals from its growing portfolio of franchises. After Disney's acquisition of Fox, Disney+ Star was added to the service, increasing the amount of more mature outings on the service from Fox's range of properties (Alien, Predator, Die Hard etc.)
Disney+ costs $13.99 per month and doesn't offer the typical tiered plan structure of services like Netflix. Instead, it's one flat rate for complete access. TV shows and movies are streamed in 4K/HDR where available, downloadable for offline viewing and can be streamed across four different devices at once.
