British woman buys haunted dress.
A lonely woman (Marianne Jean-Baptiste), recently separated from her husband, visits a bewitching London department store in search of a dress that will transform her life. She’s fitted with a perfectly flattering, artery-red gown – which, in time, will come to unleash a malevolent curse and unstoppable evil, threatening everyone who comes into its path. From acclaimed horror director Peter Strickland comes a truly nightmarish film, at turns frightening, seductive, and darkly humorous. Channeling voyeuristic fantasies of high fashion and bloodshed, In Fabric is Strickland’s most twisted and brilliantly original vision yet.
“As he did in his previous films The Duke of Burgundy and Berberian Sound System, Strickland suffuses In Fabric with intense whispers and a celebration of the beautifully twisted. This time, he offers a sharply eccentric take on consumerism shot through with black comedy – and blood.” – Elizabeth Metzler, NPRRead more
