“Deliciously retro, nastily funny, but siding with those wrung out by the cycle of labor and consumption, In Fabric deserves a spot next to Sorry to Bother You in the hall of great anti-capitalist comedies.”– Joule Zelman, THE STRANGER (Seattle, WA)

“Glamorously surreal, darkly funny, and avidly maniacal, this effort is uplifted by a turbulent and surprising finale.” – Filipe Freitas, ALWAYS GOOD MOVIES


Recently separated from her husband, a lonely woman (Marianne Jean-Baptiste), visits a bewitching London department store in search of a dress that will transform her life. She’s fitted with a perfectly flattering, blood-red gown… which in time will come to unleash a malevolent curse of unstoppable evil threatening all who cross its path. From acclaimed horror director Peter Strickland (The Duke of Burgundy) 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.
