The Blackcoat's Daughter has a new due date; pushed back to 2017

The Blackcoat's Daughter Osgood Perkins Emma Roberts

Osgood Perkins' THE BLACKCOAT'S DAUGHTER (formerly FEBRUARY) is not being treated well. I can see why she might be so angry. When last we heard from the film, it had been pushed to a September release, but evidently that wasn't set in stone. Once again, it has been shoved roughly from the schedule, and is now set in an unspecified 2017 release slot.

Like many a festival favorite, it's being given the runaround for no good reason. I just hope we get to hear from it soon, because the buzz I've been hearing is pretty unanimously positive.

Written and directed by Perkins, THE BLACKCOAT'S DAUGHTER tells the following story: 

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.

Lucy Boynton, James Remar, and Lauren Holly also star.
