In the dark and unsettling thriller The Barber, a young man shows up in a small town, having tracked down a local barber, named Eugene van Wingerdt (Scott Glenn), who he believes is hiding a dark secret. Throughout the film’s twists and turns, you’ll keep trying to put the pieces together, always wondering if you’ve truly unlocked any of the mystery. At the film’s press day, held in barber’s chairs at Sweeney Todd’s Barber Shop in Los Angeles, actor Scott Glenn spoke to Collider for this exclusive interview about being attracted to the unpredictability of this story, wanting to get the thumbs up from his wife before signing on, why he likes being surrounded by the energy of young people on set, and bringing the vision of first-time feature director Basel Owies to life.

A prologue shows a screaming young woman being buried alive; she’s one of apparently 17 such victims in the Chicago area. Suspect Francis Alan Visser (Scott Glenn) is arrested, but let go because of tampered evidence — something that results in the suicide of the investigating police officer responsible.

Shot in hazy shades of grey-blue browns and unfolding with the deliberate, stalking pace of a hunter trying to keep silent before a moonlight kill, “The Barber” is a modest but satisfying thriller that’s a little obsessed with its own themes but still gets out of its own way when the time comes. The directorial debut of Basel Owies, “The Barber” begins with a brief flashback to Illinois in the late ’90s explaining that, despite the questioning of a person of interest, the Chicago police have no leads in the serial slaying of several young girls. The lead detective, »
