Critic Consensus: As ambitious as it is daringly transgressive, Prevenge should thrill fans of pitch-black horror-comedy -- and open untold opportunities for writer/director/star Alice Lowe.

Critic Reviews for Prevenge
The film is a precisely crafted black-comic nightmare in a distinctive British tradition, built around a truly extraordinary performance.
A pitch-black, blood-soaked comedy and phenomenal first feature by Alice Lowe, who also stars as Ruth, the pregnant heroine.
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.
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.
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.
