RAW looks like it could take out the spookiest movie of 2017.
Yes. The premise sounds a little comical; a vegetarian, veterinarian student, gets hazed in her first few weeks of Uni, eats meat for the first time and goes mad with her hunger for more.
We’ve seen a couple veggo mates get to a very dark place, in the wee hours of Saturday morning, stumbling through town and winding up in Maccas, then chowing down on a McChicken like it’s the best thing they’ve ever tasted… Don’t get us wrong, it’s a freaky thing... but we weren’t quite convinced 'vegetarians gone bad' would make a quality horror movie.
Until we saw this trailer that is… It takes the slightly, kooky vegetarian jumping on the meat train, to a whole new and deeply disturbing level.
For starters, it’s French, and “erotic.” Erotica-horror… sounds like a time.
Secondly, the protagonist transitions from vegetarian to cannibal, 0 to 100 real quick.
And thirdly, legend has it, this film's screening at last year’s Toronto Film Festival resulted in two people getting carried out on stretchers.
RAW will be hitting cinemas mid-March.
