A couple travels to Sweden to visit a rural hometown's fabled mid-summer festival. What begins as an idyllic retreat quickly devolves into an increasingly violent and bizarre competition at the hands of a pagan cult.
In Fabric is a haunting ghost story set against the backdrop of a busy winter sales period in a department store and follows the life of a cursed dress as it passes from person to person, with devastating consequences..

The Universal Studios ident/logo at the start of the film is the version used in 1969. See more »
Considering that this is a prerecorded show, it is unacceptable that the closed captions provided do not sync with the voices, but are several seconds behind as though it is a live broadcast. See more »

This film took me back to a time I'll never forget. I can vividly remember almost everything I did during those days in July, 1969.
I loved the fact that the narration was handled by using the recordings of the Public Affairs Officers during the mission. I think that's critical to the immersion factor of this film/documentary. Much of the footage at the launch pad was simply amazing and has never been seen before. The only visual NOT from 1969 is the occasional graphic illustrating an upcoming flight maneuver.
I was privileged to witness the Apollo 15 launch in 1971 and I will simply never forget the shock waves pulsating off my chest and column of liquid sunshine from those mighty F-1 engines as the Saturn V muscled its way into the Florida sky.
The inclusion of President Kennedy's moon challenge at the end was the absolutely perfect way to wrap up the story of "Apollo 11" and the satisfaction of a goal accomplished and a door opened to the future. This is what America is capable of achieving when we have the focus and the will to persevere and follow through. The question I'm left with is: "Do we still have the will to dream big and the courage to finish the course?"
