Synopsis

Dare you watch Ali Catterall's film choice? It may take you out of your comfort zone but this is not your run of the mill frightener.

This cannibal horror film follows a 16-year-old vegetarian who is forced to eat a raw rabbit liver during her school's humiliating hazing ritual. After devouring the meat, she starts to crave more flesh. The movie made its premiere at this year's Cannes Film Festival where it won the FIPRESCI Prize and was recently screened at the Toronto Film Festival.

After watching the film at TIFF, Joe Lipsett wrote that Raw, "perfectly balances horrific and comedic elements. Raw is an extremely confident film that will satisfy both gore hounds and purveyors of smart horror. It is one of the most surprising films of the fest and should be particularly appealing to audiences who appreciate France's brand of extreme horror. It is highly, highly recommended."
