If you’ve spent your life looking for a horror-comedy film about a killer dress, LOOK NO FURTHER. From A24 comes In Fabric, a horror-comedy film about a killer dress. Check out the weird and wonderful trailer:
In Fabric was directed and written by The Duke Of Burgundy‘s Peter Strickland, and stars Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Hayley Squires, Leo Bill, Gwendoline Christie, Julian Barratt, Steve Oram, Barry Adamson, Jaygann Ayeh, Richard Bremmer, Terry Bird, Fatma Mohamed and Sidse Babett Knudsen.
Here’s the film’s synopsis:
A lonely woman (Marianne Jean-Baptiste), recently separated from her husband, visits a bewitching London department store in search of a dress that will transform her life. She’s fitted with a perfectly flattering, artery-red gown—which, in time, will come to unleash a malevolent curse and unstoppable evil, threatening everyone who comes into its path.
From acclaimed horror director Peter Strickland (the singular auteur behind the sumptuous sadomasochistic romance The Duke of Burgundy and auditory gaillo-homage Berberian Sound Studio) 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.
In Fabric is in UK cinemas from 28 June 2019. Get all the latest sci-fi news with every issue of SciFiNow.
