Alice Lowe's PREVENGE UK Trailer Delivers Orders From The Womb

If you enjoyed Ben Wheatley's totally F*cked up fun dark comedy Sightseers, you're going to enjoy Prevenge, starring Alice Lowe the star, of Sightseers in her directorial feature debut she also stars in too.

After a positive run on the festival circuit, the film is finally getting it's UK cinematic run including a Q&A tour around the country with Alice herself. Details are below for the tour, before then check out the UK trailer for the film as her unborn child controls her to kill!kill!kill!

Gone are the days of pickled gherkins and ice-cream!

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. 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.

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.

Alice’s other work includes three series of her sketch show Alice's Wunderland for BBC Radio 4, several short films, TV and film appearances such as Garth Marenghi's Darkplace, Paddington, Hot Fuzz, Horrible Histories, etc. More recently she has starred in UK indie film hits such as Black Mountain Poets, Adult Life Skills and Locke. She often uses improvisation in her work.

Prevenge is Alice’s directorial feature debut. 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’.

The film stars Jo Hartley (This Is England, Eddie the Eagle), Gemma Whelan (Game of Thrones), Kate Dickie (Red Road), Kayvan Novak (Fonejacker), Tom Davis (Murder in Successville), Dan Skinner (High-Rise), Tom Meeten (The Ghoul) and Mike Wozniak (Man Down).

Prevenge  will be released by Kaleidoscope Entertainment on February 10th 2017.
