The week all of Emma Roberts outdoor scenes were filmed was the coldest in recorded history in Canada's capital city. See more »
As revealed in the plot twist, Joan and Kat are the same person 9 years apart, with Joan being an alias. Kat killed Rose along with the nuns before she was shot by the police, exorcised and eventually, institutionalized. She meets up with the elderly couple after escaping, who turn out to be Rose's parents. If their daughter was brutally murdered by her roommate turned killer it seems extremely unlikely that they wouldn't recognize their daughter's killer showing up to them 9 years later. See more »

I haven't seen a horror movie this good in a while...
I just finished watching THE BLACKCOATS DAUGHTER .
First, I had no idea what this film was about and didn't read any reviews or watch any trailers. It is rare that I see a movie without knowing anything about it. I recommend not looking into what this movie is about before watching. It will be a pleasantly horrific surprise. The cinematography and score give it an incredibly David Lynch mood similar to Twin Peaks and very much film noir, and oh so unsettling. The long camera stills on character's faces creates an uncomfortable tension and an awkward closeness to what is happening in the film. I felt like I was feeling what the characters were feeling and it was really scary. I have to mention the score alone was incredibly eerie which set the mood magnificently for this film. I felt the score was so well-matched to what was happening in the film, almost to the same degree as score of The Shining. In fact, the build up in this film reminded me of a lot of The Shining.
I like that every viewer can have a completely different experience because the story line is a bit vague. Not to the point where you have no idea what is going on, rather you are eagerly grasping every hint thrown your way. I felt like I wanted to figure the plot out before it was ultimately revealed and I kept trying but I didn't manage to which was refreshing, especially because it wasn't a huge plot twist with a crazy 180 degree unexpected turn. It made sense afterwards and I was completely satisfied.
This is a slow burn with a build-up of dread that quite literally gave me anxiety. I think the pacing of this film might turn off some viewers as there aren't many jump scares. It is so incredibly dark and ominous. If I had seen this a couple weeks ago it would have made it into top slot for sure. This movie psychologically scared (and probably scarred) me and I have a feeling it will stick with me for quite some time. I am still like, "what did I just watch?" And of course I watched it when I was home alone
I think the negative reviews are by people who expected a lame horror movie with jump scares where everything is spelled out for you and you don't need to think much while watching.
If you liked movies like "It Follows", "The Witch", and "Absentia" then you'll probably love this.
