Alice Lowe (Sightseers), writes, directs and stars in this pitch-black comedy about a pregnant woman on a killing spree.
Seven months into her pregnancy, Ruth mixes maternity with murder believing that her baby is speaking to her from the womb and coaching her to lure and kill her victims. Struggling with her conscience, loneliness, and a strange strain of pre-partum madness, Ruth must ultimately choose between redemption and destruction at the moment of motherhood.
Lowe was over seven months pregnant herself while filming this post-feminist revenge film, which gives an extra edge to the bloody onscreen proceedings and slyly tests our preconceptions. With a richly funny exploration of life and death, Prevenge makes the idea that a mum-to-be could be an unrepentant mass murderer, darkly and devilishly humorous.
???? ‘A genuinely grotesque and original idea that never panders to genre expectation‘
LITTLE WHITE LIES
???? ‘This impressively peculiar film has the spark of experimental life, an unruly, unfinished quality that adds to its anarchic charm’
???? ‘Watching Prevenge is like being trapped in a weirdy cheese-dream’
Directed by a woman, written by a woman and starring a significant woman.
