People can't wait to see incredibly gory 'best horror of 2024' that drops tomorrow

Kathryn Newton, Melissa Barrera, Giancarlo Esposito, Dan Stevens Alisha Weir and Angus Cloud star in the chilling new horror

If you fancy a Friday night film date tomorrow, don't be surprised if the cinema is jam-packed with gore fans - as what's been dubbed the 'best horror of 2024' is dropping.

Prepare to wrestle a load of eager beavers while you are queueing up at the concession stands for popcorn, as people are desperate to watch this highly-anticipated disturbing flick which boasts a star-studded cast.

Critics who have already sat through the 'massively entertaining' one hour and 49 minute movie only have great things to say about it - including that it's 'explosively gory' - so be warned.

As well as the bucketload of blood which is obviously a crucial ingredient for horror films, viewers say Abigail also boasts an 'intense and gripping storyline' which 'keeps viewers guessing until the very end'.

Take a look at the trailer here:

As you can see, it's some pretty terrifying stuff.

Horror stars Kathryn Newton and Melissa Barrera join the likes of Breaking Bad’s Giancarlo Esposito, Downton Abbey's Dan Stevens and Matilda the Musical star Alisha Weir - who is giving these legends a run for their money at just 14.

Poignantly, Abigail is also the last project which the late and great Euphoria actor Angus Cloud worked on before he tragically passed away on 31 July, 2023, shortly after he had wrapped filming.

The chilling horror is dedicated to the 25-year-old, while his co-stars paid tribute to him and heaped praise on his performance at the film's premiere at the Regency Village Theatre in Los Angeles on Wednesday (17 April).

Stevens told PA: "Angus was incredible, he was so unique and I’ve never met anyone like him. He was like all of our little brothers on set, and we loved him very much, and we miss him very much.

"I love that this film has a tribute to him at the end, and he would have loved this; he would’ve laughed his arse off," the actor said.

Dublin-born actress Weir added: "Every single cast member was so incredible, and Angus brought so much joy to the set.

"Every single day he would make everybody smile and I’m so so honoured and so grateful, not just to have worked with him, but to have known such a beautiful person who is so amazing and beautiful inside and out.

"He shared that with every single person on the cast."

Although it sounds like they had a great time filming Abigail, the plot of the film isn't as warm and fuzzy.

It follows a group of wannabe criminals who kidnap the 12-year-old daughter of a powerful figure in the underworld.

To collect the $50million ransom they have demanded, all the crooks have to do is watch the ballet-obsessed youngster in an isolated mansion overnight - but this isn't any ordinary babysitting gig.

The captors start to dwindle one by one, only for the rest of them to realise that the little girl they are locked inside with isn't as sweet and innocent as they presumed.

One viewer said: "Abigail is an explosively gory good time. Perfect casting, actually funny and all practical effects. This one ramps up more and more throughout and it's so so satisfying. A new entry to my best horror of 2024."

Another fan wrote: "Abigail captivates audiences with its intense and gripping storyline. The director skilfully crafts tension and suspense throughout the film, keeping viewers on the edge of their seats as the plot unfolds."

And a third added: "An absolutely insane, bloody, campy, gore filled fun fest. Probably the best time at the movies this entire year."

Abigail will be available in cinemas worldwide on April 19.
