Second Opinion – Prevenge (2016)

9 February 2017 9:55 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Prevenge, 2016.

Written and Directed by Alice Lowe.

Starring Alice Lowe, Jo Hartley, Kate Dickie, Kayvan Novak, Gemma Whalen, and Tom Davis.

Synopsis:

Widow Ruth is seven months pregnant when, believing herself to be guided by her unborn baby, she embarks on a homicidal rampage, dispatching anyone who stands in her way.

There is an extraordinary absence of sympathetic characters in Alice Lowe’s directorial debut Prevenge – a grizzly, Death Wish-come-Rosemary’s Baby descent into the manic, mind of a woman driven to murder by her unborn baby. Surrounding Ruth (Lowe) – heavily pregnant and wholly unpleasant – are sleazy 70s disco DJs, leering reptile experts and vile cross fit junkies; as Obi Wan so declares, “it’s a wretched hive of scum and villainy.”

Ruth, heavily pregnant and now finding herself on the cusp of becoming a single mother following a sudden accident, is entirely disillusioned by pregnancy. Her midwife (Jo Hartley »

Movie Review – Prevenge (2016)

7 February 2017 9:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Prevenge, 2016.

Directed by Alice Lowe.

Starring Alice Lowe, Jo Hartley, Kate Dickie, Kayvan Novak and Tom Davis.

Synopsis:

Ruth is seven months pregnant and her husband has died in a tragic accident.  As far as she’s concerned, the little girl growing inside her is telling her to kill people.  Some because they were involved in the accident and some because they’re just in the way.

Alice Lowe is adept at juggling.  Acting (Adult Life Skills and Sightseers), writing (Sightseers again) and now directing her first feature, Prevenge.  She wrote it as well, and plays the lead role.  Admittedly, she’s not the first to do that and she won’t be the last, but she’s made a pretty impressive directorial debut nonetheless.

Given her track record, you wouldn’t expect anything conventional.  And you’d be right. This is a serial killer horror comedy, with Lowe playing the widowed Ruth, »

Prevenge review: Dir. Alice Lowe (2016)

5 February 2017 2:54 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Prevenge review: Alice Lowe writes, directs and stars in this comedy slasher about an unborn foetus with murder on its mind…

Prevenge review by Kat Hughes, February 2017.

Usually pregnancy is something to be celebrated. Imagine however, that your unborn baby is controlling you from the womb. Even worse, your child has murder on its mind and demands that you satisfy its thirst for blood. This is exactly the dilemma that Ruth (Alice Lowe) finds herself in. After her partner is tragically killed in a hiking accident, Ruth finds herself at the whim of extreme pregnancy cravings as she starts to hunt down those that let her partner die.

Prevenge is an exceptional, original take on the revenge thriller. A baby seeking vengeance before having even been born is a stroke of genius. Interesting, Lowe who wrote, directs and leads Prevenge, made the film in just eleven days, whilst in the »

Karen Gillan updates on directing debut, Lee Pace joins cast

18 January 2017 1:54 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The Doctor Who star tells Screen why she was forced to ditch the Tupperware Party title.

New cast details and a change in title have been announced for Karen Gillan’s directing debut, backed by fledgling Us production outfit Mt. Hollywood Films.

The film, which Gillan also wrote and stars in, was previously called Tupperware Party but has reverted to working title Untitled Original Drama.

Gillan explained to Screen why she was forced to change the name.

“The title is currently in limbo”, she said. “Basically we had a title [Tupperware Party] and then realised that it was a brand name. That’s actually the name of the company that makes those tubs, so currently we’re deciding on a new title. I’m kind of digging the idea that we have to figure out a new title. I do believe that obstacles in creative situations often result in a better idea so I’m hoping that’s the case »

‘Prevenge’ kicks off UK screening tour tonight

16 January 2017 8:11 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Prevenge is the brilliant and off-the-wall writing and directing debut feature by Alice Lowe (Sightseers). She wrote, starred in, and directed it whilst 7-8 months pregnant with her first child, who also appears in the film. Alice was one of the Bifa nominees for ‘best debut director’.

Known for her work as a UK television comedy actress, Alice Lowe made her move into film with her screenwriting debut Sightseers, directed by Ben Wheatley, in which she also starred as the hapless Tina. After premiering at Cannes, Sightseers went on to receive several accolades, Empire’s Best British Film, as well as acting and screenplay awards for Alice.

Official synopsis:

A pitch black, wryly British comedy, 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. »
