This distinctive and surreal melodrama combines stylish horror and dark comedy.

A witchy department store saleswoman sells a striking red dress to unsuspecting single mother Sheila. This sparks off a sort of curse, as the dress passes from person to person, each time with devastating consequences. Blending ravishing colours, sounds and textures, British director Peter Strickland serves up an otherworldly cornucopia of delights in this B-movie homage.

Running time: 2h19, including ads and trailers.
