WITH a Peter Strickland double feature, including a film about a haunted dress ­— a literal dress to die for ­— there is no shortage of cinema gore to sink your teeth into this week.

Tomorrow, Brading Roman Villa is screening the popular Josie Rourke biographic, Mary Queen of Scots (15), from 7pm.

Starring Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie, the film follows the story of Mary Stuart's attempt to overthrow her cousin, Elizabeth I, Queen of England, only to find herself condemned to years of imprisonment before facing execution.

On the same evening, The Travelling Film Show's final screening, Grease (PG), will be shown at Mottistone Gardens from 6.30pm.

As well as an opportunity to catch the all-time classic under the stars, tickets also include entry to one of the best gardens on the Island.

On Tuesday, Ventnor Arts Club will show Border (15), from 7.30pm.

The film ­— a noir tale in which a Swedish custom's officer with an extraordinary sense of smell develops an unusual attraction to a strange traveller ­— is a modern fairytale not for the faint hearted.

On Wednesday, the club will screen the first of its Peter Strickland films, Berberian Sound Studio (15).

Helmed by Toby Jones, the film follows a sound engineer's work for an Italian horror studio, becoming a terrifying case of life imitating art.

Regarded as an anti-horror film, a stylistic tour de force, and a dream of cinema, the film offers a rare kind of pleasure ­— a loving and stylish homage to 70s Italian horror cinema.

On Thursday, the club will screen Strickland's most recent film, In Fabric (15), at 7.30pm.

Set against the backdrop of a busy winter sales period at a mysterious Thames Valley department store, the film follows the journey of a cursed but strikingly beautiful blood-red dress as it passes from person to person, with devastating consequences.

The film stars Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Hayley Squires, Julian Barratt, and Game of Thrones' own Gwendoline Christie.
