The Blackcoat's Daughter: What in the hell just happened?
28 June 2017 | by jtncsmistadSee all my reviews

It's something to do with a remote, demonically possessed Catholic girls boarding school. And then Emma Roberts's enigmatic psycho character seems to be cursed with an eternal life cycle of dispatching murder and mayhem upon those most unfortunate oddballs associated with the dank and dreary place.

I think.

If you've got a better explanation for the completely incomprehensible "The Blackcoat's Daughter" then I'd sure like to hear it..........but not really. This is just a pretty dumb and pointless movie all-around. No. That's not actually true.

This is a VERY dumb and pointless movie all-around.
