Osgood Perkins’ The Blackcoat’s Daughter Continues Family Linage Set Forth By His Father

Written and directed by Osgood “Oz” Perkins (Son of Anthony Perkins) has a unique style of filmmaking. His most recent effort includes the Netflix Original I Am the Pretty Little Thing That Lives in the House. Which plays out somewhat like a Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark brought to life. Slow burners and unique perspectives seem to be Osgood’s approach to film making. His latest effort, The Blackcoat’s Daughter stars Emma Roberts, Kiernan Shipka, Lucy Boynton, Lauren Holly, and James Remar (Showtime’s “Dexter,” Tales from the Darkside: The Movie, The Warriors).


The Blackcoat’s Daughter is 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 premieres in theaters March 31, 2017 and is now available exclusively on DirecTV.
