A wonderfully original horror film made with such confidence and style.

First-time director Osgood Perkins may very well have a cult classic on his hands. The dread-inducing debut is an ingeniously crafted "slow burn" horror mystery that will keep you guessing until the final chilling frame. I must admit I loved this film. It is extremely well made, beautifully shot, incredibly paced, and certainly haunting. The setting is perfect. There is a palpable aura of general creepiness and unease for most of the film and then it hits you with the true horror. It paints a dark mood that is impossible for the audience to shake off afterwards. It is a masterpiece of filmmaking with a wildly original angle coupled with steady, perfectly composed shots of a realistically desolate snowed in boarding school.

I found "The Blackcoat's Daughter" to be a very terrifying and deeply disturbing film. Not during the film so much, but in the aftermath. It is one of those films that had my mind filling in the blanks after the events, and for me, that is where the true horror comes from. Very few films can successfully do that. This is the scariest film I have seen in a long time, and I watch a lot of horror. This is one of the very few films that achieves a level of intensity that makes it uncomfortable to watch. It is insane to me that some people think it is boring. The same people that think good horror are films like "Annabelle", "Insidious" and "Paranormal Activity" and think "jump scares" are what makes a horror film "great" instead of atmosphere and themes.

What you do get is a slow, steady, meticulous horror film with surprising layers and depth. A film that respects the art of film making, as opposed to mainstream cinema's constant pandering to the lowest common denominator. This film shows what horror can be. Highly recommended.
