British visionary Peter Strickland (The Duke of Burgundy, SFF 2015) delivers mesmerising mystery, ravishing horror and deathly dark comedy with the tale of a demonic red dress.

Peter Strickland's reputation as a brilliantly idiosyncratic auteur is further enhanced by this giddy excursion into fashion, fantasy, consumerism and human frailty. In Fabric exudes luscious menace from the moment lonely middle-aged bank teller Sheila (Jean-Baptiste, Secrets & Lies) buys a fetching red frock from a particularly peculiar saleslady at fancy London clothes shop Dentley & Sopers. But Sheila isn't the first owner of this cursed garment, nor will she be the last. Soaked in the spirit of European arthouse thrillers of the '70s and '80s, In Fabric is a fashion-horror statement of rare and intoxicating distinction.

A movie of ravishing colors and textures that ultimately elevates style and sensuality into something genuinely meaningful.
Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times
Terror emerges from laughter, from the very disbelief in what you're witnessing.
Keith Uhlich, The Hollywood Reporter
