  • The Blackcoat’s Daughter — an illusion to a priest’s cassock? — never amounts to much more than its tone, the dread Perkins summons up with morose faces, shadows and music. show more

  • Oz Perkins exhibits a committed understanding of the cinematic value of silence and of vastly underpopulated compositions. show more
