Reviews for ‘In Fabric’

“How does one describe a movie so willfully, perversely indescribable? And how do I do that while also conveying that it may be my favorite movie of the year so far?”
– Oscar Goff, Boston Hassle

“Strickland has always had a strong command of his particular visual talents, and this may be his ultimate expression of them.”
– Nick Johnston, Vanyaland

“Few people could get away with making haunted couture seem chilling without being kitsch, or turn ridiculously verbose retail-speak into something both sidesplitting and unnerving.”
– David Fear, Rolling Stone

“Strickland suffuses In Fabric with intense whispers and a celebration of the beautifully twisted.”
– Elizabeth Metzger, NPR

“Peter Strickland is a genre fetishist with a dark, delirious sense of humor, and In Fabric is his most ecstatically demented fantasia to date.”
– Nick Schager, The Daily Beast



2018 • dir Peter Strickland w/Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Sidse Babett Knudsen, Hayley Squires, Julian Barratt, Gwendoline Christie, Fatma Mohamed • 118 min • DCP

A lonely woman (Jean-Baptiste), recently separated from her husband, visits a bewitching London department store in search of a dress that will transform her life. She’s fitted with a perfectly flattering, artery-red gown – which, in time, will come to unleash a malevolent curse and unstoppable evil, threatening everyone who comes into its path.

From acclaimed horror director Peter Strickland (the singular auteur behind the sumptuous sadomasochistic romance The Duke of Burgundy and auditory giallo-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.

Dear Brattle Friends,

You guys continue to humble and amaze us with your outpouring of support!

Thanks to you, we have now raised more than $35,000 from over 400 individual donors!

Thank you for helping to keep our staff paid and The Brattle alive during this scary time.

I hope that you are all feeling healthy.

As we remain closed, our preliminary goal is to raise four weeks of operating support, or $65,000, to ensure we can continue to pay all of our staff, and other overhead through April 7. As things develop, our timeline for being closed and fundraising goal may change, but our ultimate goal of re-opening The Brattle stays firm.

With your help, this goal will become a reality.

Stay healthy,

Ivy, Ned & The Brattle Theatre Team
