IN FABRIC is a different kind of ghost story. During a January sale in a spooky department store in Southern England, newly divorced Sheila is shopping in preparation for a date and is attracted to a blood-red dress. It’s not her size, but still fits her perfectly. Suddenly, bad things start happening to her – and Sheila will not be the dress’ only victim.
As he did in his previous films, THE DUKE OF BURGUNDY and BERBERIAN SOUND STUDIO, director Peter Strickland borrows heavily from the giallo aesthetic to create a sensual, tactile and darkly funny homage to vintage horror films. A genre pastiche and a satire of obsessive consumerism, IN FABRIC is a uniquely stylish and nightmarish feast for the eyes.
