Something Lurks in A24’s ‘The Blackcoat’s Daughter’ Trailer
By: Ruben Nuno-Ortiz
This spring, The Blackcoat’s Daughter will hit theaters, but first, the film will have an exclusive run on DirecTV starting February 16th. If you prefer the big screen experience The Blackcoat’s Daughter will make its way to theaters March 31, 2017.
The Blackcoat’s Daughter is written and directed by Osgood “Oz” Perkins in his directorial debut and stars Emma Roberts (Scream Queens, American Horror Story: Coven & Freak Show), Kiernan Shipka (Mad Men) and Lucy Boynton.
The film’s synopsis reads as follows:
“Kat (Kiernan Shipka) and Rose (Lucy Boynton) are two girls would 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.”
You can check out the film’s immaculate trailer below and let me just say: wow. The Blackcoat’s Daughter looks to be an atmospheric and darkly brooding horror film. Featuring an excellent cast there is a sense of darkness and dread pervading the film and the trailer evokes a compelling and complex story. The film is a DirecTV and A24 production and if A24 has proven anything in the last couple of years, it is that they have an eye for independent horror.
The Blackcoat’s Daughter is rated R for brutal bloody violence and brief strong language and is set to be released in theaters on March 31st after it’s exclusive run on DirecTV.
Keep the Fear Alive!
