The latest from the unique imagination of Peter Strickland, In Fabric is a typically distinctive and haunting tale that 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.
Strickland’s follow-up to the acclaimed THE DUKE OF BURGUNDY and BERBERIAN SOUND STUDIO also stars Hayley Squires, Gwendoline Christie, Julian Barratt, Steve Oram and regular collaborator Fatma Mohamed, and features an unforgettable score by Cavern of Anti-Matter.

Hot on the heels of this weeks ‘In Fabric’ screenings, we couldn’t resist the urge to screen WHO ARE YOU POLLY MAGGOO? on July 25th. This iconic yet underseen classic was cited by Peter Strickland as a primary stylistic influence.
