Abigail Wanted (AKA Stingray) (1978)

Title: Abigail Wanted
Starring: Sherry Jackson, Christopher Mitchum
Directed By: Richard Taylor
Release Year: 1978
VHS Release Year: 1990
Distributor: HQV
Box Type: Slipcase
Catalog #: N/A

  • Originally released theatrically in 1978 as "Stingray".
  • Released as "Stingray" on VHS in 1986 by Embassy Home Entertainment.
  • This release clearly pushes the "Abigail as a nun" premise, other versions push the "carsplotation " aspect of the film.
  • There are no previews on this version. In fact, like most HQV Videos, there's no company ident or FBI warning at the beginning. The movie just begins during the credit sequence after pressing play, and the film's title is conveniently missing. I'm guessing maybe to avoid costs on having to insert "Abigail Wanted" over "Stingray".
