Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: 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.
Fresh: It's an atmospheric slow-burn that's heavy on moody insinuation and light on overt gotcha scares.
Fresh: Osgood Perkins impresses - and scares - with his chilly debut feature about young women and dark forces.
Rotten: None of it makes one lick of sense and it quickly becomes clear that Mr. Perkins couldn't care less.
Easily Becomes A Part Of The Modern Horror Renaissance
This movie is great. It's very slow, and if the story doesn't sound intriguing or interesting, you probably will not like this movie. It leaves much unexplained which forces the viewer to think about what is being put on screen and what it means. There are a few issues with the film that cannot be discussed without spoilers, so I won't get into them, but these issues hinder it from getting a 5/5. Definitely check this out if you were a fan of the recent horror films such as "It Follows" or "The Witch." This is being added to the list of modern horror taking its place back to where it started and abandoning cheap jump scares or torture porn.
Its was ok. Nothing special. I love alllll movies, I am really not picky, but this one is one of those that you watch once and never again. Rent don't buy (like I did). Not that scary, eery for sure, but nothing special. Slow paced, acting was decent, very very predictable. Half way through I had already called the plot.... ehhhhh
Beautiful and moving
If you liked It Follows, The Witch, or The Babadook, I highly recommend The Blackcoat's Daughter. If you didn't, I do not.
