Prevenge

Prevenge

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

a pretty interesting concept with a great story behind how it was made (director and writer played the lead role heavily pregnant). yeah, the baby voice can get a little repetitive, but it's wayyyy worth it. what's most interesting about the kills isn't the kills themselves, but the accompanying dialogue from Ruth and the unborn.

A true gem of horror / comedy. It plays on the fears & anxieties of motherhood (like the subsequent Babadook) to great, creepy effect. Kudos to Alice Lowe for creating this highly original, unsettling and funny film.
