‘Abigail’ previously known as Dracula’s Daughter is written by Stephen Shields (The Hole in the Ground) and Guy Busick (Scream franchise).

The official synopsis for the film reads as follows: “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.”

Speaking to ScreenRant Barrera spoke about how she loved finding a comedic side to the vampire mythology. Explaining the approach the movie takes to its characters discovering a vampire for the first time.

“I think my favorite part about this movie is that it’s a movie where, like, in our world, vampires don’t exist. So all of a sudden, you guys go to a party, and like you see a vampire. And you’re like, everything that I know about this earth now is challenged, because now there’s a vampire. And so they’re dealing with that’s part of the comedy. And I think that that’s so genius.”

Abigail will hit cinemas worldwide on April 19.
