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
Not at all what I expected! Super dark, super funny, and quite compelling the way it all comes together. Awesome
The banner/poster made me think this would be a much goofier, overtly funnier film--it's not that at all. It's funny but in a darker, angrier vein. Off-beat and worth a watch.
This is good, but not great. Definitely watchable and creepy.
I am LOVING the British horror selections! This one was really fun to watch unravel.
not at all what i expected. very atmospheric with an awesome soundtrack. genuinely shocking and funny. written and directed by the lead actress? crazy. 7 skulls
