The Blackcoat's Daughter trudges through the snow to a March 2017 release

The Blackcoat's Daughter Emma Roberts

You can count Osgood Perkins' THE BLACKCOAT'S DAUGHTER (formerly FEBRUARY) in with the massive slate of films that have been jerked around the schedule time and time again in recent years. It's probably the best of them (that group includes RINGS and AMITYVILLE: THE AWAKENING, but also Mike Flanagan's BEFORE I WAKE), and the last we heard of it, it had been shoved to an unspecified 2017 date. Well, prepare to get specified!

The new official date for its release is March 31, 2017, following a DirecTV exclusive releaase on February 16, 2017. I wouldn't hold my breath on that one, but DirecTV has been preserving a lot of cool horror titles recently, so I'm holding out hope. Check out some new images from the flick below!

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.
