Lowlife | Ryan Prows


“A real stroke of genius.”
– Quentin Tarantino

The sordid lives of small-time criminals collide when an organ harvesting caper goes very, very wrong.

Lowlife is Ryan Prows’ debut feature film, a crime thriller that was hailed by audiences and critics alike as “an amazing genre amalgam that makes you laugh, puts you on edge, unable to fathom what might happen next, and ultimately spurs the realization that you’ve seen a possible game-changer.” — Edward Douglas, Den of Geek.

Lowlife played festivals worldwide, winning an Audience Award and Cheval Noir Special Jury Prize for “Audaciousness, energy, and perfectly embodying the anarchic Fantasia spirit” at its 2017 Fantasia Film Festival World Premiere. The film also won top prizes for “Best Film”, “Best Director”, and “Best Actor” at its U.S. Premiere at Cinepocalypse 2017.

Lowlife was released theatrically through IFC Midnight. Shout! Factory released the film on Blu-ray / DVD, with Lakeshore Records and Invada Records handling the Original Soundtrack and Vinyl releases by Kreng, respectively.

Lowlife made several Best of the Year and Top Ten lists, and drew favorable comparisons to Pulp Fiction and the early work of Quentin Tarantino. Tarantino himself called the film “a real stroke of genius” and praised its writing and originality. Seriously.
