Evoking some unholy cross between the satanic classic Rosemary's Baby and Lucile Hadzihalilovic's uncannily eerie Innocence, with an inky dash of Lost Highway, [Osgood Perkins' film] represents a remarkable debut.

It is perfectly content with its obvious and easy twists and never fully builds a deeper reasoning or logic to them. It is creepy mutterings and indistinct voices and ominous dialogue used in service of little more than their own existence.

Vaguely supernatural and wholly psychological, The Blackcoat's Daughter is a brooding, haunted and hypnotic movie experience.

The Blackcoat's Daughter is part of the new-wave horror that diverges from the assembly line and strays from overpitched archetypes.
