"When I saw you sitting at that bus station, you reminded me so much of someone..." Bill (James Remar) and Joan (Emma Roberts) have a conversation about faith (with an underlying sense of dread) in a new clip from Osgood Perkins' The Blackcoat's Daughter.

Starting today, The Blackcoat's Daughter is available exclusively on DirecTV ahead of its March 31st theatrical release from A24.

Written and directed by Perkins, The Blackcoat's Daughter stars Emma Roberts, Kiernan Shipka, Lucy Boynton, Lauren Holly, and James Remar. In case you missed it, check out Kalyn Corrigan's review of The Blackcoat's Daughter (back when it was referred to as February) and Heather Wixson's interview with writer/director Osgood Perkins.

"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 suspensfully builds to the moment when the two stories will finally intersect, setting the stage for a shocking and unforgettable climax."
