Alice Lowe's darkly funny directorial debut, Prevenge, has been traveling the festival circuit this year to great acclaim. ScreenAnarchy's Thomas Humphrey called it "undeniably glorious" and a "fresh take on the [slasher] genre" in his review out of Venice.
The first clip has recently been released as part of the film's bow at the Stockholm Film Festival and it gives us a great taste of the twisted tale, of as well as an [actually] pregnant Lowe having one of many schizophrenic conversations with her unborn child.
While you may not be familiar with Alice Lowe as a name, necessarily, you're sure to know her work in high profile UK films like Edgar Wright's Hot Fuzz and Ben Wheatley's Sightseers.
Prevenge stars Alice Lowe, Kate Dickie, Gemma Whelan, Jo Hartley, Kayvan Novak, Tom Davies and Tom Meeten.
[Full disclosure: XYZ Films, in which Todd Brown in a partner, is handling sales for this one, but that has nothing to do with my interest in the film. Look, it's not my fault they have good taste in films.]
