The Blackcoat’s Daughter isn’t your typical horror piece. It feels about as vintage as it gets, and it moves slowly, yet effectively. The performances are stellar from top to bottom and the final act ranks among the absolute best in the business. As a filmmaker, Oz Perkins doesn’t just channel John Carpenter, he brings his own unique flare, and it works like an absolute charm. These are all great qualities, and you’ll soon be able to see it for yourself, as the movie will hit DirecTV this month before arriving theatrically next month. You can check out the trailer now, while you count the days until arrival.
The Blackcoat’s Daughter will first make a stop for DirecTV, exclusively, on February 16th, 2017. It will then make a run in theaters, which kicks off on March 31st, 2017.
The film is written and directed by Oz Perkins, son of the late, great Anthony Perkins.
Emma Roberts, Kiernan Shipka, Lucy Boynton, Lauren Holly, and James Remar star.
Synopsis: A deeply atmospheric and terrifying new horror film, The Blackcoat’s Daughter centers on Kat (Kiernan Shipka) and Rose (Lucy Boynton), two girls who are left alone at their prep school Bramford over winter break when their parents mysteriously fail to pick them up. While the girls experience increasingly strange and creepy occurrences at the isolated school, we cross cut to another story—that of Joan (Emma Roberts), a troubled young woman on the road, who, for unknown reasons, is determined to get to Bramford as fast as she can. As Joan gets closer to the school, Kat becomes plagued by progressively intense and horrifying visions, with Rose doing her best to help her new friend as she slips further and further into the grasp of an unseen evil force. The movie suspensefully builds to the moment when the two stories will finally intersect, setting the stage for a shocking and unforgettable climax.
