Abigail - Review

I Like Playing With My Food.

3.5 / 5

The Guardians of the Galaxy team line up

Directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin & Tyler Gillett.

After a group of criminals kidnap the ballerina daughter of a powerful underworld figure, they retreat to an isolated mansion, unaware that they're locked inside with no normal little girl.

Going from the charming Matilda Wormwood to the bloodthirsty Abigail is undeniable proof that Alisha Weir is going to be a star.

The Radio Silence team Matt Bettinelli-Olpin & Tyler Gillett return with another blood-soaked tale based on Dracula's Daughter with their signature humour and gore blend that makes this claustrophobic thriller a riotous experience.

A small but mighty cast assemble for a mission that goes spectacularly wrong with Melissa Barrera taking the reins as the assertive leader, but Dan Stevens steals the show and continues to prove that every film should have more Dan Stevens.

What I would have given to go into Abigail completely blind. The slow burn that leads up to the premise eventually being revealed does dampen the experience but once it gets going, Abigail is full of wicked energy and enough blood that you'll need a shower afterwards.
