A24 has announced the release the February of the long-awaited genre film ‘The Blackcoat’s Daughter’ from writer-director Osgood Perkins. The film made quite a splash at festivals in 2015 under the title ‘February’, which has now been renamed.
‘American Horror Story’ alum Emma Roberts stars along with Lucy Boynton, Kiernan Shipka, Lauren Holly and James Remar.
“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 suspensfully builds to the moment when the two stories will finally intersect, setting the stage for a shocking and unforgettable climax.”
‘The Blackcoat’s Daughter’ will arrive on DirectTV on February 16th followed by its premiere in theaters on March 31st.
