If it weren’t for It Follows, my favorite horror film of 2015 would have been Osgood Perkins’ The Blackcoat’s Daughter (read my review), which I saw back in September of that year (under the title of February) at its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. It’s been on the shelf for so long that Perkins has since wrote, filmed and saw the release (via Netflix) of his second feature film, I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House, before this. That’s a full bucket of “what the fucks”.
Well, the satanic thriller is allegedly finally getting a release, first on February 16th on DirecTV, and then in limited theaters on March 31st.
Starring Emma Roberts (“American Horror Story”, “Scream Queens”) and Kiernan Shipka (“Mad Men,” Carriers):
“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.”
Principal photography took place in Ottawa on the film written and directed by Osgood Perkins, son of legendary Psycho actor Anthony Perkins.
