Dracula’s Daughter: ‘Abigail’ 2024 Movie Review


‘Abigail’ 2024 Movie Review: A vampire horror movie from 2024 called Abigail was directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett. Stephen Shields and Guy Busick wrote the script. Inspired by and a new take on the 1936 Universal Classic Monsters movie “Dracula’s Daughter.” Sadly, this was the last movie that actor Angus Cloud worked on before he died on July 31, 2023, not long after finishing his parts. Brian Tyler, who often works with Bettinelli-Olpin and Gillett, wrote and conducted the film’s music. The movie is a tribute to Cloud’s life.

At first, the movie seems like a typical kidnapping story. It starts with Alisha Weir as 12-year-old Abigail practicing “Swan Lake” on the dance stage. This is a clear nod to vampire mythology, and Tchaikovsky’s famous score from Bela Lugosi’s “Dracula” from 1931 plays in the background. But right after this lyrical introduction, Abigail is taken hostage by a group of rude and offensive criminals and taken to a hideaway house.

Abigail (2024 film)-

The kidnappers want a $7 million ransom, but the kidnappers fake names and constant fighting. Kristof Lazar, Abigail’s father, played by Matthew Goode, is shown to be a demonically cruel crime boss. Even though Abigail doesn’t like her father, she has a mean streak that makes her act like a wild child with very sharp teeth, playing with and fighting the kidnappers one by one. Some of them turn into vampires, and others die in terrible ways.

Frank, played by Dan Stevens, is the gang boss and the most annoying character. He is a yuppie nerd who is always yelling. Also in the group are Sammy (Kathryn Newton ), Peter (Kevin Durand), and Joey (Melissa Barrera). “Abigail” turns bloodsucking into pointless violence more like professional wrestling than traditional horror stories.

Abigail” adds a scary new twist to the horror genre by showing us a tiny dancer who loves blood. As Abigail searches for her kidnappers and shows how scary it is to turn into a vampire, the movie is both scary and funny at the same time.

The whole cast is great. Stevens is great as the shady Frank, Newton is great as the horror veteran who is on the verge of turning monster, Durand is great as the muscle man with French-Canadian roots, and Barrera is great as the smart Joey. Each character gives the story more depth, but the main theme of parent-child ties moves the story forward. Abigail and Joey, in particular, form a bond that goes beyond their problems, which gives the story more emotional depth.

Even though the plot is long, it keeps people interested by exploring vampire mythology and making references to old horror movies like “Dracula’s Daughter.” With dark, sticky blood and explosive gore that pays homage to horror greats while staying true to their style.

Even though it has some over-the-top parts, “Abigail” stays true to the Radio Silence style and gives viewers an exciting and emotionally powerful horror experience. Like other movies of this type, “Abigail” plays on people’s emotions, and Joey stands out as a strong and relatable final girl who is determined to stay alive no matter what.
