Sorry, Shorty Long and William “Mickey” Stevenson, but the Devil doesn’t wear a blue dress. At least, not according to Duke of Burgundy director Peter Strickland, whose latest feature, In Fabric, finds a demon in red threads.
Although the film’s billed as a horror comedy, the trailer suggests another unnerving rollercoaster from A24 as we watch Marianne Jean-Baptiste contend with a haunted red dress. Okay, that sounds a little funny, but it sure doesn’t look it.
In addition to Baptiste, the film stars Hayley Squires, Leo Bill, and Game of Thrones star Gwendoline Christie. It joins A24’s ever-expanding roster of chilling indie horror, the likes of which include Ari Aster’s forthcoming Hereditary followup, Midsommar.
Currently, the film is set for release in the UK on June 28th with a US release to follow.
