If a slasher comedy is what you want then a slasher comedy is what you’ll get with the brilliant ‘Prevenge‘!
The film is the director debut from Alice Lowe, who has appeared in such films as the now cult classic ‘Hot Fuzz’, 2013’s ‘Locke’ starring Tom Hardy, and 2012’s ‘Sightseers’ in which she starred in the lead role as Tina.
In ‘Prevenge’, which Lowe has also written, she stars as Ruth, a widow who is almost at the end of her pregnancy when she starts to hear voices from her unborn child. The voice of the baby takes over her life, telling her to go on a vicious killing spree.
Joining Lowe in the cast is ‘Phonejacker’ and ‘Facejacker’ star Kayvan Novak who plays Tom as well as Game of Thrones’ Yara Greyly and Gemma Whelan, who plays Len.
If this is Lowe’s directorial debut then we can’t wait to see what she does next. Prevenge is bound to be a hit, it did after all, an official selection for the Toronto International Film Festival, the BFI Festival and the Venice Film Festival.
Revenge is out now in UK cinemas, so don’t miss it!
