Abigail | Melissa Barrera on Her Love of Horror and Working With Radio Silence

Melissa Barrera has a certain affinity for horror, especially with any project with Radio Silence at the helm. In their third collaboration, Barrera once again takes the lead in the vampire ballerina film Abigail with Radio Silence directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett at the helm.

The film also stars Dan Stevens, Alisha Weir, Kathryn Newton, William Catlett, Kevin Durand, Angus Cloud, and Giancarlo Esposito.

Here is the full synopsis:

Children can be such monsters.

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.
