James Remar sees God in Emma Roberts in this spoiler-free clip from Osgood Perkin’s brooding The Blackcoat’s Daughter (read my review).
The clip, which is very safe to watch, is the entire crux of the film, centralizing on the belief in both God and the Devil.
Kiernan Shipka (“Mad Men,” Carriers) stars with Roberts as two terrified girls who must battle a mysterious evil force when they get left behind at their boarding school over winter break.
I recently told you that this satanic thriller will first arrive February 16th exclusively on DirecTV before hitting limited theaters on March 31st.
If it weren’t for It Follows, my favorite horror film of 2015 would have been Osgood Perkins’ The Blackcoat’s Daughter.
“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.
