    Look Who's Talking: the Reboot



    I shall henceforth worship the ground Alice Lowe walks on.

    Mainly because she has a deeply dark sense of humour and is extremely talented on all levels.

    And partly because she really scares me.

    Prevenge is so deadpan in its humour and its horror it won't work for everyone. For me it worked perfectly. It's wry, dry and twisted, making me laugh out loud on more than one occasion and look away in disgust on another.

    One could argue that its narrative is stretched a bit too thinly and there is probably some truth in that, but there is just so much bizarreness to relish I simply couldn't care less.

    A high concept dark comedy, Prevenge is filled with laughs but also delivers some horrific moments and a dramatic element that works better than required. The tone and energy of Prevenge really worked for me, and the entire picture has an inviting, knowingly fun vibe. I'd be intrigued to see the concept done as a less comedic horror film, but Prevenge is very enjoyable as it is and works as one of those films that has a dumb premise but executes it smartly.
