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.


“A heady mix of intoxicating nostalgia, clothing-related alchemy and horror-inflected twisted comedy, it’s an impressively uncategorisable affair, seemingly inspired by Strickland’s traumatic/ecstatic memories of being dragged to department stores as a child.” – Mark Kermode, The Guardian

“Peter Strickland fashions a slyly hilarious Italian horror homage about a demonic frock and the even more sinister forces that compel us to shop.” – Peter Debruge, Variety

“Totally twisted, super stylish, and frequently funny, the new fetishistic nightmare-dream from Peter Strickland is a loving recreation of Euro-horror and giallo tropes of the past, lovingly referenced in nearly every frame.” – Chris Evangelista, SlashFilm

“As usual, Strickland’s latest is delirious, deeply delicious in sumptuous form and sly humor.” – Rodrigo Perez, The Playlist
