A24’s R-rated horror film The Blackcoat’s Daughter has unveiled an official trailer in support of its upcoming February 16, 2017 premiere on DirecTV. Osgood Perkins wrote and directed The Blackcoat’s Daughter which stars Scream Queens’ Emma Roberts, Mad Men‘s Kiernan Shipka, and Borgia‘s Lucy Boynton. A24 is planning a March 31, 2017 theatrical release following its debut on DirecTV.
The Plot: 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.
