Directed by Alice Lowe
A pitch black, wryly British comedy from the mind of Alice Lowe, 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
Funny and shocking. Loved it.
Now THAT'S a pregnancy scare. Hahahahaha... I apologise for nothing
More from Alice Lowe, please.
I really wasn't sure about it until I saw Alice Lowe had led the whole thing. She's one of the horror greats of today, and this is an absolutely brutal comedy.
Dark and engaging. Well worth a watch. Great central performance with a tight script.
