Consensus: Slow-building and atmospheric, The Blackcoat's Daughter resists girls-in-peril clichés in a supernatural thriller that serves as a strong calling card for debuting writer-director Oz Perkins.

Rex Reed
New York Observer

None of it makes one lick of sense and it quickly becomes clear that Mr. Perkins couldn't care less.

Yes, it's a horror movie (the murder scenes suggest that the director has watched "Psycho" more than once), but even its most brutal acts pulse with inchoate sadness.

While The Blackcoat's Daughter is intriguing and seductive at the start, in the end it doesn't quite live up to the insinuations it made in the beginning.

It's an atmospheric slow-burn that's heavy on moody insinuation and light on overt gotcha scares.

The film feels determinedly old-fashioned, awash in a hypnotic ambience that's only occasionally punctured by violence. Like his father, Perkins makes his jolts count.

A motion picture so intensely layered, so fastidiously detailed, so remarkably constructed, so suggestively atmospheric, and so emotionally resonant it earns its place as a modern work of art.

"The Blackcoat's Daughter" is a self-contained tale of evil that knows exactly what it's doing.

"The Blackcoat's Daughter" connects the pieces and ends strongly, though Perkins smartly spends more creative energy on crafting creepy situations than on pointing toward the payoff.

Another month, another overhyped horror flick that ultimately represents much ado about nothing.
