MONDAY 13 SEPTEMBER 2021 (A–Z) // What’s on in London today including one-off events, limited runs, film clubs, repertory seasons, film festivals, outdoor events, & our selection of new releases.
PREVENGE d. Alice Lowe, 2017 at Picturehouse Cinemas (13 SEP various).
- “About to become a single mother for reasons that are gradually, tantalisingly revealed, heavily pregnant Ruth (Alice Lowe) seeks to wreak revenge on those she deems responsible for her situation – and revenge in this case means a series of grisly murders, all firmly encouraged by the eerie voice of her unborn baby. Written and directed by Alice Lowe, PREVENGE has some of the dark humour of Ben Wheatley’s SIGHTSEERS, in which she co-starred, and a lot more of the not-so-casual violence. It’s an assured low-budget debut.”
