The latest from the unique imagination of Peter Strickland, In Fabric is a typically distinctive and haunting tale that blends Giallo-infused horror with absurdist dark humour, to ghostly effect.
Bank teller and single mother Sheila (Marianne Jean-Baptiste) is ready to get back into the dating game. At a peculiar department store, where the staff seems to speak in riddles, she finds a very unique scarlet dress she hopes will bring her luck. But the dress truly is like no other, and those who wear it must suffer the consequences.
Strickland’s follow-up to QFT hits The Duke of Burgundy and Berberian Sound Studio is an exquisite, surreal, psychosexual thriller with a sense of humour as dark as its garment's motives.
In Fabric also stars Hayley Squires, Gwendoline Christie, Julian Barratt, Steve Oram and regular collaborator Fatma Mohamed, and features an unforgettable score by Cavern of Anti-Matter.
