It’s been a few years now since I saw Oz Perkins’ directorial debut under the title of FEBRUARY at Beyond Fest 2015, but the film has haunted me ever since. Now known as THE BLACKCOAT’S DAUGHTER, the flick finally was released here in the United States earlier this summer. You can find it on VOD, or for you Amazon Prime users, it’s available there as well.
It’s hard to describe, but THE BLACKCOAT’S DAUGHTER is a fiercely unique cinematic experience; an incredibly confident and deliberately paced debut that feels like David Lynch reinterpreting Stanley Kubrick’s THE SHINING, or even Ti West’s modern classic THE HOUSE OF THE DEVIL. At the heart of its mood is the score.
Composed by Perkins’ brother Elvis, an extremely talented musician in his own right with several albums under his belt under the moniker of Elvis Perkins In Dearland, the music for THE BLACKCOAT’S DAUGHTER is equally as haunting as the visuals that inspired it. And as of late, I can’t stop listening to it…
Mondo (via Death Waltz) has recently released the full score on vinyl. Copies are still available via their official website. But the album is also available digitally through Mondo’s Bandcamp page. If you just want to listen, you can stream it for free, embedded below for your convenience, or purchase it on MP3 for $9 bucks. Enjoy!
