A24 Acquires ‘In Fabric,’ a Horror Film Centered on a Cursed Dress

Earlier this month at the Toronto International Film Festival, Peter Strickland‘s horror film In Fabric world premiered, the film set during a department store’s winter sale where customers – from a lonely divorcee (Marianne Jean-Baptiste) to the wife (Hayley Squires) of a washing machine repairman – end up cursed by a scarlet dress that corrupts their lives.

THR reports today that A24 has acquired In Fabric out of TIFF, grabbing the North American rights to the film. They’re planning a domestic release in 2019.
