Emma Roberts is very popular in the horror genre, after appearing in films Scream 4, Valentine’s Day and TV series American Horror Story. She will also head up the cast of new TV series Scream Queens shortly, so any horror project with her attached is bound to gather interest.
Interestingly, a new horror film, with Roberts as the star, has just been discovered.
February is directed by Osgood Perkins, son of Psycho actor Anthony Perkins. The film is produced by Unbroken Pictures’ Adrienne Biddle and Bryan Bertino (The Strangers), Rob Paris’ Paris Film, Inc. (Everly), Zed Filmworks’ Rob Menzies, and Alphonse Ghossein of Go Insane Films. Carissa Buffel and Kevin Matusow are executive producing under their Traveling Picture Show (The Quiet Ones) banner along with 120dB Films’ Peter Graham and Steve Hayes as well as Arianne Fraser.
The cast includes Emma Roberts (“American Horror Story”) and Kiernan Shipka (“Mad Men,” Carriers), with Lucy Boynton (Miss Porter), James Remar (“Dexter”), and Lauren Holly (Dumb and Dumber).
Beautiful and haunted Joan (Roberts) 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.
