In the second of this year’s two films about clothing attires that cause death and suffering a red dress plays the key part. The beautiful dress catches the eye of the single bank teller Shelia when she’s Christmas shopping in an exclusive haute couture store. When she finally decides to purchase the dress a series of highly suspect events starts to occur. We are confronted with a washing machine running amok, nasty workplace rituals, bloody mannequins and much more. The director Peter Strickland has made a very strange but at the same time stylistically completely convincing horror comedy that breathes fresh of Italian giallo and sharp anti-capitalist consumer criticism.
