Radio Silence Drops First Trailer for Horror Feature ‘Abigail’

From Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, the directing team behind ‘Ready or Not,’ 2022’s ‘Scream,’ and ‘Scream VI,’ comes a blood-thirsty new vision for vampire flicks featuring a monstrous little girl. 

Children can be such monsters. Radio Silence has dropped the first trailer for the horror film Abigail, featuring a very creepy kid.

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, as they discover that they’re locked inside with no normal little girl. 

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

Abigail stars Alisha Weir (Roald Dahl’s Matilda the Musical, Darklands) as Abigail and Melissa Barrera (Scream franchise, In the Heights), Dan Stevens (Gaslit, Legion), Kathryn Newton (Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, Freaky), William Catlett (Black Lightning, True Story), Kevin Durand (Resident Evil: Retribution, X-Men Origins: Wolverine) and the late Angus Cloud (Euphoria, North Hollywood) as the kidnappers.

William Sherak, Paul Neinstein, and James Vanderbilt produce for Project X Entertainment, alongside Tripp Vinson and Radio Silence’s Chad Vilella. Ron Lynch and Macdara Kelleher executive produce. Adam Brewer acts as visual effects manager for Universal Pictures.

Abigail hits theaters on April 19.
