We saw Julia Ducournau’s brilliant body horror debut Raw at the London Film Festival and it was absolutely one of our favourite movies of the fest. A UK release date is yet to be confirmed, but we can’t wait to watch it again next year, and we love this poster (via IMPAwards).
“Garance Marillier portrays the teenaged Justine, who commences her studies at veterinary school to follow in her family members’ footsteps. Raised as a vegetarian, Justine is pressured at school to try meat for the first time. Once she does, she plumbs both the depths of her own soul and tests the limits of her darkest cravings.”
The film is a fantastic coming of age horror that is witty, touching and consistently surprising, and Marillier’s central performance is superb. If you’re fan of horrors like Ginger Snaps, Excision and American Mary, we highly recommend this.
Raw will be released in the UK next year and on 10 March in the US. Keep up with the latest genre news with the new issue of SciFiNow.
