Session Times



Dress in your very best for a well-heeled psychological horror from the mind of virtuoso British director Peter Strickland (The Duke of Burgundy, Berberian Sound Studio). Recently separated from her husband, lonely bank teller Sheila Woodchapel (Marianne Jean-Baptiste) visits a bewitching London department store in search of some retail therapy. Immediately transfixed by a blood red gown on display, she’s soon convinced by enigmatic store clerk Miss Luckmoore (Fatma Mohamed) that it’s the dress of her dreams. But as the cursed garment begins to wreak malevolent havoc on her personal life, Sheila, her son Vince (Jaygann Ayeh) and his girlfriend Gwen (Gwendoline Christie) quickly realise that this particular frock is the stuff of nightmares.

"Peter Strickland's hypnotic horror film turns fashion into a death sentence ... Try it on, but carefully: It leaves a mark"
— Time Out
"Funny, troubling ... wholly and deliberately bewildering, both in the moment and for days and nights afterwards"
— The Telegraph UK
"Utterly unlike anything else around"
— The Observer
"Sensual, surreal and seriously funny"
— Empire

Why You Should See This Film

Gleefully sadistic and filled with unforgettably over-the-top imagery, In Fabric harkens back to the retro Euro slashers and midnight movies of yore. Deeply stylish while also offering a withering critique of consumerist greed, it’s anchored by Strickland’s unassailable vision, saturated Giallo set-pieces and the lead performance of Oscar nominee Marianne Jean-Baptiste (Mike Leigh’s Secrets & Lies).
