A new kind of vampire flick has arrived. Packaged in the form of a seemingly sweet little girl who wears pink dresses and does ballet, “Abigail” has much more fear factor under the surface.

Written by Stephen Shields (“The Hole in the Ground”) and Guy Busick (“Ready or Not”), the movie comes from Radio Silence — directors of Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, who helmed horror hits like “Ready or Not,” the 2022 “Scream” revival and its sequel “Scream VI.”
