A group of criminals are tasked with the kidnapping of a 12 year old ballerina, Abigail (Alisha Weir), and holding her for ransom in a fortified mansion in the woods; but, as details regarding who her father is come to light, it’s very clear the gang has bitten off more than they can chew. Worse yet, Abigail herself may be more than they bargained for as well.Written by Stephen Shields and Guy Busick and Directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett this splatter and spatter fest of a dark ride brings the proper amount of gore to a modern day vampire film with just the right amount of whimsy and lore to keep horror enthusiasts entertained for a jumpy spooky time. Re-treading some previous ground from their earlier work Directors Bettinelli-Olpin and Gillett lean in to their successes of Ready or Not and double down on the same, that’s not to say we’re looking at the same film, rather, we’re beginning to see what might be their signature moves, also not bad. Meanwhile, work from the ensemble appears to be stout, ripe with irrationality, and overacting as appropriate, stand outs from Dan Stevens and Melissa Barrera are notable. End result, we’re not breaking new ground in horror or vampire lore but the slick and polished feel, plus the buckets of blood that were required for the journey more than seal the deal in giving this gem a nod. Fun for fans of the genre, running an hour and forty nine minutes, Abigail is rated R.
