Free PREVENGE Screening for Pregnant Women

Never before has hatred and scorn crossed the placental barrier with such vim and vigor as in writer/director Alice Lowe's post-embryonic pitch black horror comedy, PREVENGE and premium streaming service Shudder is hosting a special screening in New York City with free admission for pregnant women!

Directed while Lowe was 7 1/2 months pregnant, PREVENGE stars Lowe as Ruth, a pregnant woman driven to a murderous rampage by her misanthropic unborn spawn who tells her to kill, kill, KILL! Darker than a womb on a moonless night, PREVENGE is Juno meets The Son of Sam, wherein Ruth's bitter blastula with daddy issues, a barking mad bun in the oven, prods and pokes at her with a sort of reverse amniocentesis of rage, sending her on a killing spree.** You'll never look at an ultrasound in the same way again!

"When brainstorming this film I thought 'What would be funnier than a dog telling someone to kill?'" said Lowe.  "Ventriloquist dummies, God, demons...all have been used and then I thought 'what's funnier than a psychotic fetus convincing its mother to kill?' My own fetus was nothing but sunshine, rainbows and lollipops, of course." 

PREVENGE stars Lowe, Gemma Whelan, Kate Dickie and Jo Hartley and has screened at some of the most prestigious film festivals around the world, including the 2016 Venice International Film Festival, 2016 Toronto International Film Festival and the 2017 South by Southwest Film Festival and Conference. 

**Don't worry, this is really unlikely. 

The film will be screening at the IFC Center located at 323 Avenue of Americans (at 3rd Street), New York, NY, Monday, March 20th at 8:15pm.  Alice Lowe will be there in person and admission is free for pregnant women. 

If you are currently pregnant and would like to attend Monday night's special screening of PREVENGE for free, please RSVP to guillermo@brigademarketing.com.  If you're not currently pregnant, tickets are available for purchase at www.ifccenter.com/film/prevenge

A pitch black, wryly British horror comedy from the mind of Alice Lowe (“Sightseers,” “Hot Fuzz,” “Paddington”) that’s as funny as it is vicious,  PREVENGE follows Ruth, a pregnant woman on a killing spree. It's her misanthropic unborn baby dictating Ruth's actions, holding society responsible for the absence of a father. The child speaks to Ruth from the womb, coaching her to lure and ultimately kill her unsuspecting victims. Struggling with her conscience, loneliness, and a strange strain of prepartum madness, Ruth must ultimately choose between redemption and destruction at the moment of motherhood.

PREVENGE marks the directorial debut from Lowe (star and co-writer of Ben Wheatley’s “Sightseers”), who is a true triple threat, writing, directing, and acting in the film during her own real-life pregnancy.  It received a British Independent Film Award nomination for Best Directorial Debut.
