Sightseers (2012) star Alice Lowe wrote, directed and plays the lead in psychological horror comedy Prevenge. The film was shot back in December 2015 when she was genuinely heavily pregnant (the 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 magazine. "It's a sort of psychedelic Jekyll & Hyde mystery where Hyde is an unborn baby..."
With Jo Hartley (Eddie The Eagle), Tom Davis (Murder In Successville), Dan Renton Skinner (High-Rise), Tom Meeten (Sightseers), Eileen Davis (The Theory Of Everything), Mike Wozniak (Man Down), Kate Dickie (The Witch), Kayvan Novak (Four Lions) and Gemma Whelan (The Wolfman) also in the cast, Prevenge is out in cinemas now.
