As is becoming traditional for the season, we've seen plenty of blockbuster trailers over the last week or so. But a quality British microbudget indie is always welcome too, and with that, here's the first promo for Alice Lowe's psychological horror comedy Prevenge.
Lowe wrote, directed and stars in Prevenge. She shot it around this time last year, when she was genuinely heavily pregnant (that baby bump you see in the trailer is real). Somewhat disturbingly, what she came up with is a violent black comedy about a rage-fuelled pregnant woman with a kill list. She believes her unborn baby is prompting her to murder – and perhaps it really is.
"You’re basically working out why this woman’s doing what she’s doing and killing these particular people," Lowe told Empire. "It’s a sort of psychedelic Jekyll & Hyde mystery where Hyde is an unborn baby..."
Jo Hartley, Tom Davis, Dan Renton Skinner, Tom Meeten, Eilieen Davis, Mike Wozniak, Kate Dickie, Kayvan Novak and Gemma Whelan are among the rest of the cast, and Prevenge is out in the UK in February.
