Prevenge Rated 15


Dir. Alice Lowe. UK, 2016. 1h 27m. Starring Alice Lowe, Jo Hartley, Dan Renton Skinner, Gemma Whelan, Kayvan Novak, Kate Dickie.

Maternal and killer instincts combine in this anarchic British comedy following a vengeful mother-to-be on a grizzly and murderous rampage. Filmed during the final two-weeks of her own pregnancy, Alice Lowe’s (Sightseers) twisted directorial debut features a strong cast of British cult comics - many of which are emasculated and eviscerated along the way! Certainly not for the faint hearted.

'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.’ ★★★★ Mark Kermode, The Guardian

'You don't need to have a warped sense of humour to enjoy writer-director Alice Lowe's gruesome black comedy, but it helps.’ ★★★★ Cath Clarke, Time Out
