Raw Red Band Trailer

"A deliciously fevered stew of nightmare fuel." Focus World has debuted a juicy red band trailer for a highly acclaimed indie drama titled Raw, which played to rave reviews at the Toronto Film Festival and Fantastic Fest last fall. The film is about a young veterinarian student named Justine, played by Garance Marillier, who is a vegetarian. Everything changes when she's forced to eat raw meat as part of a hazing ritual at the vet school, and things get bloodier from there on out. The cast includes Ella Rumpf, Rabah Nait Oufella, Laurent Lucas, Joana Preiss, Bouli Lanners, Marion Vernoux. This acclaimed film is also playing at Sundance coming up this month. This looks disgusting, but the rave reviews have me interested anyway.

Here's the official red band trailer (+ poster) for Julia Ducournau's Raw, direct from YouTube:

Raw Movie Poster

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. Raw is both written and directed by French filmmaker Julia Ducournau, making her feature directorial debut after a TV film (Mange) previously. This premiered at the Cannes and Toronto Film Festivals last year. Focus World will release Ducournau's Raw in select US theaters starting March 10th this winter. Who's interested in this?

      Ah, tarek...don't be hasty, man. I'm not a fan of horror movies or the like, but this seems like there could be something going on beneath the surface of the story here...which might A meaningful and incisive look at the human condition using this genre as a vehicle? I thought I saw a glimmer of some attempt at that while watching the trailer. No? Plus, it's not a mindless and gory American movie...which is a plus...
      • Hey Bo. I don't know. My Dud-meter is telling me this is just gore porn. In this era of voyeurism and morbid curiosity Poop and porn art are becoming more and more popular.

          Yea, you're probably right here, tarek, especially regarding your excellent usually hate these kind of 'Saw'-like movies...I don't know...there just seemed a flicker of possibility that this might be along the lines of A Girl Who Walks Home Alone At Night...a film which I really liked a lot. Did you happen to catch that film from 2014? Excellent black and white photography and a really different vampire genre film told in a bizarre fashion that really worked...for me.

    I have no problem with desire for flesh. But I don't see that cannibalism gets it right ...
  • grimjob
    Looks delightfully bizarre.
  • Not a big fan of seeing animals in distress. What veterinarian schools do (in real life), I'd prefer not to see. Just saying...
  • Efterklang
    Doesn't exactly look easy to watch, but I'll give it a go. Looks both disgusting and intriguing at the same time.

    She developed THE HUNGER.....or most likely a tapeworm, which just made her permanently hungry
