On the April 19, 2024 episode of /Film Daily, /Film editor Ben Pearson is joined by /Film editor BJ Colangelo to talk about Abigail and present an interview with Radio Silence, the film’s directors.

Opening Banter: I want to read some quick feedback from our vampire episode yesterday. Eddie from Los Angeles wrote in saying “Thanks for another fun episode. Most of my favorite vampire movies at least got a shout out, but I do recommend 2012’s Byzantium, directed by Neil Jordan, who also directed Interview with a Vampire, and stars Saoirse Ronan and Gemma Arterton. It’s a more realistic take while still having style, and it covers some themes you won’t likely find in other vampire tales. I’ve always thought this was underrated and underseen, so check it out. And of course, where was Vampire’s Kiss?
