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 hesitated between a three skulls and 4 skulls. Very well done for a low-budget movie. Good acting and the humour is caustic and funny. Good story.
Excellent psychological horror. A fine debut effort, slightly shaggy plot, but the look, the acting, and genre flourishes are solid stuff.
Wholly original take on the slasher film, a genre that has been stale for a long time.
not bad, definitely unenjoyable, a very different kind of movie
