the blackcoats daughterIt’s crazy to think that you see that a film was made a couple of years back, but yet it’s the first time that you’ve seen or heard of it. That is definitely the case with today’s Eddie’s 31 Days Of Halloween film The Blackcoat’s Daughter which says that it was made in 2015, but didn’t see the light of day until 2017. Today’s film is an interesting one to say the least as it follows three different girls and their experiences from their unique perspective. Rose (Sing Street‘s Lucy Boynton) is a senior at the Bramford Academy that has a lot to chew on her plate that could potentially change her life for the worse. Kat (Mad Men‘s Kiernan Shipka) is a freshman at the academy that is a little different than the rest. Rose and Kat are trapped at the academy while everyone else is back him for winter break and they must battle an evil presence. For Joan (We’re The Millers Emma Roberts), she is just trying to get to where she needs to be, but when a stranger offers help, will she get there? The film also stars Lauren Holly (Dumb And Dumber) as Linda, James Remar (Tales From The Darkside: The Movie) as Bill, Emma Holzer (Spring Breakers) as Lizzy, Peter J. Gray (The Age Of Adaline) as Rick, Heather Tod Mitchell (The Best Laid Plans) as Mrs. Drake, Matthew Stefiuk (Clown) as Ranger, and the film was written and directed by Oz Perkins (I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House).

blackcoats daughterYou really have to understand what kind of a film you are getting yourself into when you decide to watch this one. I certainly didn’t know, but once I found out the style of the film I was fine with it. You have to love films that take it’s time to build up whatever it is it’s going to throw in your face because this is definitely a slow cooker, but it’s well worth it. This is definitely one of the best horror films of 2017 (I say that because it was released in 2017) for a lot of reasons. One of the many reasons this is a great film is because of the writing. It is truly an amazing film that builds up momentum as it goes along and the writing definitely helped with that. The cinematography was also amazing with so many great shots throughout and the score helped a lot with the creepiness of the film. The acting was fantastic as well and you have to give kudos to the three girls because it really was great performances from them. I also have to give James Remar and Lauren Holly a lot of credit as well, but I can’t give away too much on that because it was potentially spoil the film. The end of the film is definitely going to shock you, but when you figure out the twist you are going to be like holy sh** and that is one of my favorite reactions watching a film. The end of the film just keeps getting better and it ends on such a weird note that it’s amazing. I have to give Oz Perkins a lot of credit on this film and I strongly suggest that you guys check this one out. I am going to give the film an A for a final grade.
