About the Movie
A pitch black, wryly British comedy from the mind of Alice Lowe (SIGHTSEERS, HOT FUZZ, PADDINGTON), 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.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: 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: While not every tonal downshift here is entirely fluid, this remains a smart, risky one-off, unconcerned with those (and there will be many) who can't acquire its taste.
Fresh: This movie won't be for everybody, but fans of Lowe's prior work should be thrilled to see such a distilled dose of her perverse humor.
Fresh: The film is a precisely crafted black-comic nightmare in a distinctive British tradition, built around a truly extraordinary performance.
Very good movie, I would recommend everyone see this, but what's up with the red dot on the screen during the movie?
