Radio Silence’s Vampire Pic ‘Abigail’ Sets Peacock Premiere Date

Peacock announced on Monday morning that the vampire horror comedy Abigail from Radio Silence’s Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett (Ready or Not, Scream VI) will begin streaming exclusively on the platform beginning July 19.

Notching a worldwide gross of over $42 million upon its release in theaters in April, Abigail watches as a heist team is hired by a mysterious fixer to kidnap the daughter of a powerful underworld figure. They must guard the 12-year-old ballerina for one night to net a $50 million ransom. But as the captors start to dwindle one by one, they discover to their mounting terror that they’re locked inside an isolated mansion with no ordinary little girl.
