If you loved the weird and wonderful spoof series Garth Marenghi's Dark Place, a British TV show that payed hilarious homage to '80s horror movies via the "dream-weaving" fictional "visionary horror author," Garth Margenghi; if you loved Sightseers, the hysterical camper van-based #horror comedy that butchered a litter-dropping tourist in gory glory; if you loved Hot Fuzz, Black Books, Drunk History, This Is Jinsy or Beehive, then you will love #Prevenge, the latest madcap movie spawned from the demented mind of British comedian Alice Lowe.
And you'll love it even more if you're currently pregnant. Because it means you can see it for free.
But, first things first, what the hell is it? Well, in a nutshell, Prevenge is the story of a homicidal fetus who commands its mother/captor to wreak revenge on those involved in the death of its father. Yep, really; Alice Lowe — who penned, directed, stars and was actually pregnant throughout the movie — is instructed to systematically hunt down those involved in her partner's demise by her unborn child. And unsurprisingly, it looks brilliant.

Sold? Yeah, thought you might be. So, if you're currently with child and feel like spending a couple of hours LOLing your ass off while simultaneously fearing you're about to birth the spawn of Satan, you're in luck.

Starring Gemma Whelan (Game of Thrones), Jo Hartly (This Is England, Eddie the Eagle) and Kate Dickie (The VVitch), the cast for this visual mind-fuck is as solid as its premise.
