The Directors Of Scream Unleash Vampire Horror With The Abigail Trailer – SlashFilm


Before they teamed up with “In the Heights” actor Melissa Barrera to revive the “Scream” franchise with the slasher property’s fifth and sixth films, Radio Silence cemented Samara Weaving as one of our modern Scream Queens with “Ready or Not.” And much like that movie put its leading lady through the wringer (gifting us with the, if not iconic then at least internet-famous, image of a blood-splattered Weaving smoking a cigarette with a distinct air of ennui), “Abigail” apparently had its directors apologizing to their cast for absolutely drenching them with gore. Not that we sickos would expect anything less from them at this stage.

Speaking of sickos, “Abigail” sees Dan Stevens — fresh off getting up close and personal with Kong’s anatomy in “Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire” — starring opposite Barrera, along with Kathryn Newton (“Lisa Frankenstein”), Kevin Durand (who, contrary to the growing popular opinion online, is not Elon Musk), and the late “Euphoria” actor Angus Cloud. Meanwhile, “Roald Dahl’s Matilda the Musical” star Alisha Weir portrays the titular ballerina vampire and Giancarlo Esposito rounds out the cast as the type of mysterious, menacing figure that only he can play so exquisitely.

“Abigail” pirouettes its way into theaters on April 19, 2024.
