Extra Info

A babysit at 50 million dollars? Who’d say no to that? Certainly not this gang of amateur crooks with one single mission: to guard the freshly kidnapped daughter of a powerful tycoon from the underworld. One single night, in a desolate mansion that scores five stars in terms of comfort, until daddy-o pays the ransom. While our boys enjoy a game of pool sipping on their 500$ whiskey’s, the doors of the mansion slam shut, doubly-locked. The windows are bolted, the emergency exits sealed and metal grills worthy of a Swiss bank complete this most impressive security system. Overkill, much? Oh, not at all! You see, our gang of tough guys aren’t holding little Abigail captive. It’s very much the other way around. ‘Cause she’s got the same temperament as dear old daddy. The same teeth as well. And the same thirst for blood…

A worthy heir to the Universal Monsters of old – DRACULA’S DAUGHER notably comes to mind – that is shaping up to be one of the biggest scarefests of the year! How so? Well, you have to know it’s directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett (SOUTHBOUND, WEDDING NIGHTMARE, SCREAM 6), the duo that is always able to put a new spin on old genres without every disappointing us. And they can count on a stellar cast including Melissa Barrera, the late Angus Cloud (also starring in YOUR LUCKY DAY, also at the BIFFF this year) and Giancarlo Esposito. So come and have an unforgettable night at the festival! We promise we won’t lock the doors…
