‘Abigail’ Trailer: Melissa Barrera And Dan Stevens Kidnap The Wrong Girl In New Horror From ‘Scream’ Filmmakers

The Scream 7 drama is is finally over, and the directing team of Radio Silence, Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, have moved on to their next chance to work with star Melissa Barrera again on a different horror film. Abigail is one of the most anticipated movies of the year as it comes from the “it” duo who have been wowing genre fans since Ready or Not put them on the map.

As seen in the new trailer for Abigail, the film is a vampire movie about a group of criminals who discover that one of the girls they have kidnapped is far more dangerous than they ever could’ve known.  Before long, it becomes clear that the kidnappers are the true captives here.

Joining Barrera in the cast are Alisha Weir, Dan Stevens, Kevin Durand, Kathryn Newton, Will Catlett, Giancarlo Esposito, and the late Euphoria actor Angus Cloud.

Screenwriters Stephen Shields and Guy Busick were inspired by another classic horror movie, 1936 horror Dracula’s Daughter.

Here’s the official synopsis: 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.

Abigail opens in theaters on April 19th, so we don’t have to wait long!
