Catalina Sandino Moreno is dealing with some seriously sinister unwanted guests…
A new trailer has been released for the 40-year-old Colombian Oscar-nominated actress’ film Barbarians, an IFC Midnight thriller
Set over the course of 24 hours, the film sees couple Adam (Rheon) and Eva (Moreno) wake up in their supposed dream house on Adam’s birthday. Lucas (Cullen), property developer and friend of the couple, arrives for dinner with his actress girlfriend Chloe (Spiridonov), to celebrate Adam’s birthday and the couple’s buying of the house. But secrets unravel over dinner, and when the doorbell rings, the evening takes a nightmarish turn. As manners give way to madness, an idyllic evening of celebration descends into a dark night of terror, and the group’s civilized dinner party turns out to be anything but.
Barbarians marks the feature directorial debut of Charles Dorfman, who just won Best Feature at the Independent Spirit Awards, as a producer on Maggie Gyllenhaal’s Netflix drama, The Lost Daughter.
The film made its world premiere at Fantastic Fest last year. Dorfman directed from his own script, which was based on a story by Statten Roeg, and produced alongside Jason Newmark and Laurie Cook.
