From Alice Lowe (Sightseers) comes a pitch black, wryly British comedy, which follows Ruth (Lowe), 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. Lowe also leads a strong British cast that includes Jo Hartley, Gemma Whelan, Kate Dickie, Kayvan Novak, Tom Davis, Dan Skinner, Tom Meeten and Mike Wozniak.
Prevenge is out on DVD, Blu-Ray and VOD from June 5th, and include the following extras: audio commentary (Alice Lowe, cinematographer Ryan Eddleston, editor Matteo Bini and producer Vaughan Sivell) and a behind the scenes featurette ‘Post Natal Confessions’.
The Prevenge soundtrack by ToyDrum is available digitally through Invada Records now www.invada.co.uk
