With a hoard of horror movies lining up for 2016 fans of the genre might be in for a good year, with The Witch looking particularly promising. Having had a successful international opening for The Witch, distribution company A24 has another scary movie on its roster (at least I hope it’s scary), simply named February. The movie is written and directed by Osgood Perkins – who also makes his directorial debut – and is about two girls, played by Emma Roberts and Kiernan Shipka, who attend a boarding school where the pair grow close after experiencing some freaky and frightful events.
Here is the official synopsis:
In February, beautiful and haunted Joan makes a bloody and determined pilgrimage across a frozen landscape toward a prestigious all girls prep school, where Rose and Kat find themselves stranded after their parents mysteriously fail to retrieve them for winter break. As Joan gets closer, terrifying visions begin plaguing Kat while Rose watches in horror as she becomes possessed by an unseen evil force.
