A short clip has been released from The Blackcoat’s Daughter and it’s pretty freaky. The scene shows Joan (Emma Roberts) walking down a dark corridor before noticing a woman carrying out a rather aggressive form of worship. The scene is extremely tense and builds to a perfectly bewildering climax that should leave you eager to discover what’s happening.
Two girls must battle a mysterious evil force when they get left behind at their boarding school over winter break.
I wasn’t a huge fan of The Blackcooat’s Daughter, but I did appreciate its overall air of mystery. The slow unravelling of the film’s truth is not entirely faultless and I would argue that its dark mysteries are a little too easy to unwind.
You can check out a host of images from the film below too, which show the icy atmosphere and the chilly setting for the film’s twisted events.
The Blackcoat’s Daughter comes from writer-director Oz Perkins (I Am the Pretty Little Thing That Lives in the House) and additionally stars Lucy Boynton, Kiernan Shipka, Lauren Holly and James Remar.
