Description

A pitch black, wryly British comedy from the mind of Alice Lowe, Prevenge follows Ruth, a pregnant woman on a killing spree. 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. Having shown at Venice, Toronto and most recently the London International Film Festival, 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

    Dark, disturbing and very funny. Alice Lowe is outstanding. Highly recommend this off-beat thriller killer.

    Alice Lowe’s pitch black comedy debut is a true tour de force. This physiological master class recounts Ruth’s decent into madness at the hands of her psychotic unborn child. Had me crying with laughter and shrieking with terror in equal measure. The must watch indie of 2017!
  • Great Dark Comedy!

    Very, very funny. Very, very black. Loved this film. Genius set up -homocidal unborn child driving its mother to kill (or is it?). Great set pieces (the disco scene is a classic). Great supporing cast as well. Love Kayvan Novak but familiar faces from Game of Thrones too. Alice Lowe -talent to watch!
  • Killing for Two!

    Brilliant debut from the hillarious Alice Lowe. Disturbing, thrilling and darkly comic you will struggle to see a better debut this year.
