By Josh Weiss

Start sharpening those fangs and brush up on your pirouettes! Radio Silence's Abigail is officially swooping onto digital platforms on Tuesday, May 7, Universal Pictures Home Entertainment announced. An inspired riff on the vampire genre, the project centers around a group of greedy kidnappers who get way more than they bargained for when their hostage, a seemingly harmless 12-year-old girl with a love of ballet (Matilda the Musical's Alisha Weir), turns out to be an immortal bloodsucker. 

"We went into this very much thinking about how can we do our version of vampire things without being super beholden to everything that came before. While also acknowledging everything that came before so that [we] and the characters in the movie have at least a cursory understanding of the characters," Matt Bettinelli-Olpin, who co-directed the feature alongside Tyler Gillet, told SYFY WIRE. "Or, they think they do. And then how can we just upend that and play with it throughout."
