Barbarian Streaming: How To Watch The 2022 Horror Movie Online

With so many horror movies coming out right now, finding the time to watch them all is a task that is easier said than done. And sometimes, if you miss a movie after making its big-screen debut, you have to wait a while to give it a spin on its home release, which can lead to you forgetting about it and missing out entirely. You won’t have that problem with Zach Cregger’s Barbarian, as the movie that was a hit with critics and produced solid box office numbers is going to be streaming a whole lot sooner than anyone might have guessed.

If you want to watch one of the most talked 2022 movies after missing out in theaters, or for a second time at home, stick around because we’re about to break down how you can watch Georgina Campbell, Bill Skarsgård, Justin Long and the rest of the Barbarian cast in action. Here’s how to watch Barbarian streaming…

How To Watch Barbarian Streaming

There are some great horror movies on HBO Max, considering the streaming service gives users access to more than a century’s worth of classic monster flicks, slashers, and psychological thrillers. As of Tuesday, October 25 the platform's offerings get a little better with the streaming debut of Barbarian. But remember, you will need an active HBO Max subscription if you want to watch the movie audiences have called “crazy,” “rare,” and “incredible." 

Stream Barbarian on HBO Max starting October 25.

Are There Other Ways To Watch Barbarian?

But you're not entirely out of luck if you don't subscribe to HBO Max, as Barbarian is also available as a digital rental or purchase on services like Amazon, Vudu, iTunes, and multiple others.

Rent/Buy Barbarian on Amazon.

There’s still a chance you can watch Barbarian on the big screen, as the movie is playing in select theaters throughout the country in the days surrounding its streaming debut. But with so many big fall movies coming to cineplexes in the coming weeks, we might not expect to see it there too much longer.

If You’ve Already Watched Barbarian…

If you’ve already watched Barbarian, stick around, because CinemaBlend has a handful of articles written about the surprise horror hit that touch on a number of different aspects of the movie.

First, there’s Sarah El-Mahmoud’s positive Barbarian review (4 out of 5 stars) where she called to attention to the fact the movie was not as advertised, in the most bonkers and brutal possible way. In her critique of Zach Cregger’s horror debut, El-Mahmoud said the movie walked a fun line between terror and buffoonery while also saying it’s one of those flicks that’s best entered blind.

There’s also the Barbarian ending explanation that’s worth a read if you want a better understanding of the film’s final moments, as well as what led to it. After that, check out what Cregger had to say in response to all those wild fan theories. And if you want even more movies like Barbarian, we have a collection of titles worth a watch, including some of the best horror flicks of all time.

Don’t forget, there are a ton of new and recent movies streaming on a variety of platforms that are worth checking out if you missed them the first time around. And to prevent yourself from missing out any more thrills and chills, check out our list of upcoming horror movies.
