Watch: New Red Band Trailer for Acclaimed Cannibal Indie Film 'Raw'
"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:
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?

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.

I have no problem with desire for flesh. But I don't see that cannibalism gets it right ...

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...

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
