Fun surrealistic art horror comedy about a haunted red dress made by
a demonic fashion house. Visually stunning but absurd from the
director of the 2012 art horror drama "Berberian Sound Studio".
Marianne Jean-Baptiste is great as the unlucky Sheila,
the first owner of the red dress in the film. Sheila is a lovable middle-aged
lady that watches the hypnotic TV commercial about a big sale at the
Fashion House of "Dentley and Sopers". With the help of the
strange but sexy shop assistant (Fatima Mohamed) she tries on a nice
red dress in size 36, much to small for the delightfully plumpy
Sheila, but mysteriously it seems to fit her perfectly anyway.
Sheila is suspicious of the dress and when she tries to wash it her
washing machine explodes. The Dress won't have any of that.
Sheila works at a bank and her discussions with her
two quirky bosses are the most funny scenes of the film. In the second
part of this
film a washing machine mechanic (Leo Bill) whispers tech lingo and makes
people fall in a trance of pleasure.
An absurd horror comedy artmovie that will not tell you what it's about
or about what's happening. Is Fatima Mohamed's shop assistant
a witch, a demon, a vampire, an undead or Satan herself ? But it for
sure looked visually gorgeous and with a fine ambient soundtrack
from "Cavern of Anti-Matter" and the film was shot in UK,
Budapest and in Visegrad.
The Bluray presents the film in widescreen 2.35:1 ratio
and with an english DTS-HD MA 5.1 or DD 5.1 audio with swedish subtitles,
region B. No extras but some trailers for other films
