“Prevenge,” directed by Alice Lowe

Movie, 2016

Decidedly offbeat slasher revenge film, in which a foetus instructs its mother to despatch a number of people involved in her father’s death. A film which is, in parts, quite disturbing and comedic, in which gore and an unhinged narrative push things along, with little let up. While there are a few plot issues and while the focus of the film feels quite intense, insane and uncomfortable, there’s a singleness of purpose and vision and an interesting mother/baby dynamic which just about works. A bold and courageous film, all things considered, and while it’s not one for the squeamish, it’s worth a look and is ultimately, reasonably good fun.
