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
I really wanted to like this but it was pretty dull.
seriously ridiculous! waste of time!
The unborn child's voice and dialogue stopped this from feeling like a modern black comedy and made it feel more like a children's show from the 1970's. The gore was nice, but the plot and dialogue really would always bring you back to the reality that you were not watching a good movie after the killing stopped.
Indescribable, but very enjoyable. I laughed out loud at parts and also had to cover my eyes for others. All around a good movie, worth a watch.
Pretty good even though most of the deaths left you questioning "would that even cause them to die"....
