image from the film IN FABRIC

High fashion and bloodshed collide in this erotic and darkly humorous horror movie about a red designer dress that possesses its owners, especially the wonderful Marianne Jean-Baptiste. “From the teasing opening credits, it’s no exaggeration that each image of In Fabric is hypnotically, unsettlingly beautiful. Such is Strickland’s sense of cinema that the mere act of opening a box becomes a lurchingly violent, almost erotic act. The obvious reference point for In Fabric is Dario Argento’s Suspiria, …and the lurid colours, ubiquitous fetishization, and dream logic all feel like classic Euro-horror. There’s even a coven of glamorous witches thrown in for good measure. (Cinevue)

“[Strickland’s] most impressive, engrossing, imaginatively unchained work yet.” (NY Times)
