In addition to its streaming release, “Abigail” will also be released on Blu-ray and DVD on July 9, 2024. The home video edition will feature various special content, including deleted and extended scenes, gag reel, and behind-the-scenes featurettes. “Blood Bath” delves into the practical effects used in the film, while “Hunters to Hunted” explores the character development of the abductors. “Becoming a Ballerina Vampire” showcases the transformation of the young actress into a menacing vampire, and “Directing Duo Matt & Tyler” offers insights into the creative process of the directors. The release will also include a feature commentary with the directors and editor.
