Raw ¬ Trailer

“Cannibalism coming-of-age story” isn’t a phrase you hear every day, and that in itself is reason enough to be curious about Raw.

Add in the fact that Raw received rave reviews on the festival circuit (that is, when it wasn’t making audiences sick to their stomachs) and that it’s being heralded as a breakout for first-time director Julia Ducournau and young star Garance Marillier and Ella Rumpf, and it’s skyrocketed to near the very top of my most-anticipated list.

Raw centers around a young woman who’s having a rough time adjusting to college. For most of us, that means battling annoying roommates or pounding hangovers; for her, it means developing an insatiable hunger for flesh. Focus World has just served up the first trailer for Raw, and if you’ve got a taste for the macabre you’ll definitely want to dig in.

It isn’t a movie for the faint of heart, and those who get nauseous at the sight of gore should probably stay away. But if you think you can handle it, this one sounds like a must-see. Raw is select theaters March 10, 2017.

Here’s the synopsis:

Everyone in Justine’s family is a vet. And a vegetarian. At sixteen she’s a brilliant student starting out at veterinary school where she experiences a decadent, merciless and dangerously seductive world. Desperate to fit in, she strays from her family principles and eats RAW meat for the first time. Justine will soon face the terrible and unexpected consequences as her true self begins to emerge…
