Prevenge

Description
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 triple threat, writing, directing, and acting in the film during her own pregnancy. Prevenge opens theatrically in New York and Los Angeles, and will be available nationwide on Shudder, on March 24th.

[Prevenge is] a thought-provoking, visually stunning film with just the right amount of humor to balance out some very gruesome and shocking death scenes.

A beautifully horrific, pitch-black comedy that perfectly nails the complexities of love, loss, and motherhood, Prevenge is a stunning debut from Lowe, and I hope we get more projects like this from her in the future.

Another storyteller might have designed Prevenge as a more comically-slanted effort, but Lowe has sculpted it to smash taboos and social norms.

Prevenge, like many horror films, is as divisive as it is thoughtful -- no matter where you stand on it. But I assure you, it is one not to be missed. Especially now.

As a director, [Alice Lowe], she shows much flair and cunning. Prevenge throbs off the screen thanks to her talent for mischief and bemusement. She herds around a fine comedic cast and maintains vigour between scenes with Toydrum's pummelling soundtrack.

If The Boss Baby offered the family-friendly suggestion that having a child is akin to a corporate merger, Alice Lowe's gleefully demented Prevenge makes the far less pacifying argument that carrying one is more like a hostile takeover.

Lowe's film is hilarious in its skewering of leering men and unsupportive women, but her film also comments on the trials of pregnancy and the often condescending attitude toward the mental competency of expectant mothers.

Lowe's film crazily reimagines the abortion debate as one that's out of both men and women's hands; rather, it's the prenatal tyke itself that's both in charge, and has a fondness for bloody butchery.

Lowe's take on pre- and postnatal depression and the dark side of motherhood is undeniably unique. If nothing else, you've got to respect a woman who will push herself through a doggy door while seven months pregnant for her art.

What hoists this bloody battiness above much of the scrappily low-budget horror pack is the smartness of its execution and the strength of the movie's central performance.

Fresh feminist horror of a very welcome taboo-smashing kind. Nasty, hilarious, outraged and outrageous, and as poignant as it is blackly funny.

Prevenge proves that the actress-cum-filmmaker has a sense of cringe comedy that's distinctly her own, and it'll be grand watching a woman continue to bring her own brand of cruel genre toys to a table usually reserved by boys.

Prevenge forgoes the traditional pitch of horror-comedies and never mines its kills for laughs. The violence in the film is graphic but never showy, preferring to revel in the awkward muck of bloodletting, the reality of taking a life.

Lowe is a more striking and resourceful actor than director, and that's fine. She's clearly a huge talent, and it's encouraging to see her finding her voice so soon, even if it's creepy baby-doll drone.

Lowe, who reportedly breast-fed and changed nappies in the editing room, [has] proved herself a multitasking mother of invention. I can't wait to see what she creates next.
