Cast of Prevenge
Dan Renton Skinner
Della Moon Synnott
Lowe's take on pre- and postnatal depression and the dark side of motherhood is undeniably unique. If nothing else, you've got to respect a woman who will push herself through a doggy door while seven months pregnant for her art.
A gonzo idea in search of better execution.
If The Boss Baby offered the family-friendly suggestion that having a child is akin to a corporate merger, Alice Lowe's gleefully demented Prevenge makes the far less pacifying argument that carrying one is more like a hostile takeover.
Alice Lowe evinces a knack for locating society's most awkward pressure points, and a willingness to punch them.
Reel Talk Online
Prevenge, like many horror films, is as divisive as it is thoughtful -- no matter where you stand on it. But I assure you, it is one not to be missed. Especially now.
FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles)
It's rare to see a horror film with such a feminine point of view.
Lowe is a more striking and resourceful actor than director, and that's fine. She's clearly a huge talent, and it's encouraging to see her finding her voice so soon, even if it's creepy baby-doll drone.
If metaphors were movies, Alice Lowe's new film would be a masterwork. Instead, it's just smart fun-as well as a promising dbut.
The film is a precisely crafted black-comic nightmare in a distinctive British tradition, built around a truly extraordinary performance.
Wall Street Journal
A pitch-black, blood-soaked comedy and phenomenal first feature by Alice Lowe, who also stars as Ruth, the pregnant heroine.
Los Angeles Times
This movie won't be for everybody, but fans of Lowe's prior work should be thrilled to see such a distilled dose of her perverse humor.
New York Times
What hoists this bloody battiness above much of the scrappily low-budget horror pack is the smartness of its execution and the strength of the movie's central performance.
New York Magazine/Vulture
Perversely prodding at all that we take for granted about pregnancy, Lowe has found a pitch-black, occasionally profound story about a woman's loss of control over her body and mind, pulled between forces of life and death.
What distinguishes Prevenge from the pack is the unsettling tragedy of Ruth. She's either an unwilling agent of her unborn's malice, or flat-out insane with grief.
The Daily Beast
Lowe's film crazily reimagines the abortion debate as one that's out of both men and women's hands; rather, it's the prenatal tyke itself that's both in charge, and has a fondness for bloody butchery.
Lowe has made a spectacular directorial debut in a film that is defiant, disturbing, and darkly hilarious.
This is just pointless. Its premise is everything but valuable. It's plain offensive. [Full review in Spanish].
Bay Area Reporter
[Alice Lowe's] first feature as a director is brilliant in a Jennifer Saunders way, mordant, skillful, outrageous, and true.
The lead character is fascinating to watch and her decision making is puzzling at times, but the film remains interesting to watch throughout and the kills themselves are interesting.
While not every tonal downshift here is entirely fluid, this remains a smart, risky one-off, unconcerned with those (and there will be many) who can't acquire its taste.
