The latest from the unique imagination of Peter Strickland (The Duke of BurgundyBerberian Sound Studio), In Fabric 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.

The cast also includes Gwendoline Christie, Julian Barratt, Steve Oram and regular collaborator Fatma Mohamed, and features an unforgettable score by Cavern of Anti-Matter.

Followed by a Q&A with writer/director Peter Strickland.
