About the film:

Premiered at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival. Two young students at a prestigious prep school for girls are assailed by an evil, invisible power when they are stranded at the school over winter break.

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

—Chris Nashawaty for Entertainment Weekly

About the filmmaker:

Starting out as a child actor, Oz Perkins’s career took off when he was nine years old. In the early stages of his Hollywood career, Perkins acted in comedies like Six Degrees of Separation (1993), Legally Blonde (2001), and Not Another Teen Movie (2001). He worked in series television while getting his start in acting, including a part on Alias. Perkins’s first feature as a director was The Blackcoat’s Daughter, which premiered at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival. He has since directed the features I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House (2016) and Gretel & Hansel (2020), and an episode of the Paramount+ series The Twilight Zone.
