Evil Baby On Board -- See the "PREVENGE" Stunt Video

SHUDDER presents

Written and Directed by Alice Lowe

View the FUNNY OR DIE stunt video HERE

"Rocking a dirty mind and a sick sensibility... A brilliantly conceived meditation on prepartum anxiety and extreme grief. You'll laugh, you'll squirm, you'll want to get sterilized immediately."
- Jeannette Catsoulis, THE NEW YORK TIMES

"A pitch-black, blood-soaked comedy and phenomenal first feature by Alice Lowe."

"Lowe has sculpted [Prevenge] to smash taboos and social norms. As smartly crafted and grimly funny as it is terrifying. "

A pitch black, wryly British horror comedy from the mind of Alice Lowe (“Sightseers,” “Hot Fuzz,” “Paddington”) that’s as funny as it is vicious,  PREVENGE follows Ruth, a pregnant woman on a killing spree. 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 (star and co-writer of Ben Wheatley’s “Sightseers”), who is a true triple threat, writing, directing, and acting in the film during her own real-life pregnancy.  It received a British Independent Film Award nomination for Best Directorial Debut.
