Raw is a horror drama film by Julia Docourneau. It is about a college freshman who tastes meat for the first time and becomes a cannibal.
As a person who enjoys seeing gory stuff on-screen, I can say that I found this film enjoyable. I was amused as my seatmates cringed while the main character ingested her sister’s finger.
Although this film is gory, the quality of the plot did not suffer, unlike most gory film these days like The Human Centipede. The film uses cannibalism as a plot device and a metaphor for the sisters’ coming-of-age. It was relatable to a point, as we all go through a phase of insecurity, adjustment, and comformity as we enter college.
Overall, I enjoyed this film and I would recommend it to people who enjoy both gore and plot.
