Directed by Alice Lowe
A pitch black, wryly British comedy from the mind of Alice Lowe (SIGHTSEERS), PREVENGE follows Ruth, a pregnant woman on a killing spree that’s as funny as it is vicious. It's her misanthropic unborn baby dictating Ruth's actions, holding society responsible for the absence of a father. The child speaks to Ruth from the womb, coaching her to lure and ultimately kill her unsuspecting victims. Struggling with her conscience, loneliness, and a strange strain of prepartum madness, Ruth must ultimately choose between redemption and destruction at the moment of motherhood. PREVENGE marks the directorial debut from Lowe, who is a true triple threat, writing, directing, and acting in the film during her own real-life pregnancy.
A pregnant woman sets out to get revenge on seven strangers in this British black comedy-slasher.
Cast: Alice Lowe, Gemma Whelan, Kate Dickie, Jo Hartley
Kind of interesting. The last fifteen minutes are the best part of the whole movie. It’s got some pretty funny moments.
Garbage and even worse with all the comments of femininity and motherhood being made. Terrible.
Really good - sinister and a great deadpan horror performance from Alice Lowe. Great premise well executed and darkly funny as well as sad. Has a sort of aura of off-pitch madness to the whole thing. Also a great score - really unsettling....Very English...in it's sort of 'cup of tea?' stabbiness
Didn’t quite do it for me
didn't quite work for me. interesting, but ultimately not for me.
