The Oz Perkins directed movie The Blackcoat’s Daugher was completed back in 2015, but is finally going to see the light of day. The creepy looking film, set in a boarding school, has a fairly interesting official 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.
The film seems to have similar tones to The Shining‘s isolated horror, and frankly could be a fairly interesting film if the trailer is any indication.
The Blackcoat’s Daughter premieres on DirecTV February 16th, and will hit theaters and VOD on March 31st.
