Alice Lowe Delivers First Trailer For Her Horror-Comedy ‘Prevenge’
Baby knows best. Baby knows what to do.
Alice Lowe’s pitch black horror-comedy, Prevenge, generated much praise during its auspicious festival run this year. The premise is simple: a pregnant woman gets killing prompts from the unborn child she’s bearing–“she can [hear me], she’s very articulate”–something of a role-reversal of Jason and Mrs. Voorhees. Lowe stars, writes, and directs the film, much to the delight of the critics who have seen it in festivals it screened on. Barely news to anyone (including to our own Less Lee More, read her TIFF review!); Lowe has made some of the zaniest, most fun horror-comedies in recent memory (see: Sightseers). From the looks of the freshly released trailer for her new film, we’re in for a rampage.
No playdate for the U.S. as yet, but this is the type of film that kills on the distribution front. I’m sure we’ll get to see it one way or another pretty soon.
