Oz Perkins United States, 2015

Viginti_tres's rating of the film The Blackcoat's Daughter

If we agree that there is such a thing as anti-comedy, then it seems right to call the films of Oz Perkins anti-horror. He tells a familiar tale - here a sort of Suspiria meets The Exorcist - but does so in a stilted, shattered and strange, off-kilter way. Wrong enough to remove all the fun, frights and satisfaction from scenes, but shot so well it seems intentional.
