Friday April 19th – ABIGAIL will be in theaters nationwide.

Today brought a short little video featuring Melissa Barrera giving us a little background on her character – have a look!

From the press materials:

After a group of would-be criminals kidnap the 12-year-old ballerina daughter of a powerful underworld figure, all they have to do to collect a $50 million ransom is watch the girl overnight. In an isolated mansion, the captors start to dwindle, one by one, and they discover, to their mounting horror, that they’re locked inside with no normal little girl.  

Children can be such monsters.

From Radio Silence—the directing team of Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett behind the terrifying modern horror hits Ready or Not, 2022’s Scream, and last year’s Scream VI—comes a brash, blood-thirsty new vision of the vampire flick, written by Stephen Shields (The Hole in the GroundZombie Bashers) and Guy Busick (Scream franchise, Ready or Not). 

Abigail stars Melissa Barrera (Scream franchise, In the Heights), Dan Stevens (GaslitLegion), Kathryn Newton (Ant-Man and the Wasp: QuantumaniaFreaky), William Catlett (Black LightningTrue Story), Kevin Durand (Resident Evil: Retribution, X-Men Origins: Wolverine) and Angus Cloud (EuphoriaNorth Hollywood) as the kidnappers and Alisha Weir (Roald Dahl’s Matilda the Musical,Darklands) as Abigail.
