Dir Osgood Perkins w/Emma Roberts, Lauren Holly, Kiernan Shipka [93 min]

A deeply atmospheric and terrifying new horror film, THE BLACKCOAT’S DAUGHTER centers on Kat (Kiernan Shipka, Mad Men) and Rose (Lucy Boynton), two girls left alone at prep school Bramford over winter break when their parents mysteriously fail to pick them up. The girls experience increasingly strange and creepy occurrences at the isolated school.

Meanwhile, Joan (Emma Roberts, Scream Queens) is 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 is plagued by progressively intense and horrifying visions. Rose does her best to help her new friend, who is slipping further and further into the grasp of an unseen, evil force. The suspense builds toward the moment when the two stories will finally intersect, setting the stage for a shocking and unforgettable climax.
