Students usually unwind during winter break, but prep school attendees in The Blackcoat’s Daughter experience stress that easily surpasses their final exams when their survival is threatened around the holidays. Ahead of the horror film's upcoming release, A24 has unveiled new stills from the Osgood Perkins movie.

Synopsis: "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."

Written and directed by Osgood Perkins, The Blackcoat’s Daughter stars Emma Roberts, Kiernan Shipka, Lucy Boynton, Lauren Holly, and James Remar. The film is produced by Rob Paris, Adrienne Biddle, Bryan Bertino, Robert Menzies, and Alphonse Ghossein.

The Blackcoat’s Daughter debuts exclusively on DirecTV beginning February 16th, followed by a theatrical release on March 31st.
