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.
Set against the backdrop of a busy winter sales period at a mysterious Thames Valley department store, the film follows the journey of a cursed but strikingly beautiful blood red dress as it passes from person to person, with devastating consequences.
When Sheila Woolchapel (Marianne Jean-Baptiste) is sold this mercurial item by the store’s insistent salesperson, it seems the lonely divorcee has had a rare piece of good luck and her confidence is instantly boosted by its flattering fit. Elsewhere, the dress finds its way into the lives of a hapless washing machine repairman and his fiancée Babs (Hayley Squires), who quickly fall prey to the gown’s seductive powers and hypnotic influence.
When the dress starts to exact a heavy toll on its owners, they soon discover to their great cost that it’s almost impossible to get rid of, and that the staff who sold it to them may be hiding a dark secret.
Strickland’s follow-up to the acclaimed THE DUKE OF BURGUNDY and BERBERIAN SOUND STUDIO also stars Gwendoline Christie, Julian Barratt, Steve Oram and regular collaborator Fatma Mohamed, and features an unforgettable score by Cavern of Anti-Matter.
