Peter Strickland’s latest is beautiful, eerie and slightly absurd as it follows the destruction wrought by a cursed dress.

Hauntingly beautiful, eerie and hilarious, Peter Strickland’s (Berberian Sound Studio, The Duke of Burgundy) new film follows a cursed dress as it passes from person to person with devastating consequences. Marianne Jean-Baptiste makes a welcome return to the big screen in a tender role that brings humanity to all the gory nonsense.
