What are people saying?

  • Matt Richards's rating of the film Raw

    Really started off well with interest and potential but went ahead and discarded the vegetarian debate and devolved into a brainless teen horror. If it wasn't for the incredible performance by Marillier I would have switch off very early. 2 stars

  • thay's rating of the film Raw

    not (far from) perfect but I'm giving it 5 stars for the experience - even though it's not as explicit as I thought it would be, it's fairly well constructed to the point that it made me uncomfortable sometimes (but I've got personal issues on account too) - and because I'm a sucker for female crazies and body horror, hell yes, two of my favorite things.

  • LauraPalmer's rating of the film Raw

    "Kuru: a rare progressive fatal prion disease that resembles Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease and has occurred among tribespeople in eastern New Guinea who engaged in a form of ritual cannibalism—called also laughing death, laughing sickness. One hypothesis was that Kuru is a symptom of demon possession or a manifestation of sorcery". This is not a film, this is an experience. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eAXmgId3NTQ

  • MATTEO BITTANTI's rating of the film Raw

    An earnest attempt at reinventing the body horror genre. As expected, Raw is repellent and sickening, but it's nowhere as perverse or repugnant as other modern horrors like Trumpcare. In fact, the contemporary film horror genre faces an insurmountable hurdle: it pales compared to an average day in Donald Trump's America. The French Extreme Horror can't match the sheer obscenity of the 45th and his minions.

  • Ricardo Branco's rating of the film Raw

    I actually enjoyed this a lot, but it's not as gore as marketing made it look like. it's a very clever movie with complex characters and it leaves you to figure out the puzzle after the movie ends. Anyway, college hazing is the most scary thing about it.

  • Igor Ramos's rating of the film Raw

    While the premise of a shy vegan wunderkind discovering meat and sexuality in an hostile environment had plenty of potencial, Ducournau handled this too heavily: 15 minutes in and Justine was already completely losing her shit. The film does grab you by your throat and doesn't let go until the end, it's filled with fantastic images and sounds... but it lacked a genuine build-up towards something truly shocking.

  • VENIMOS LOS JODIMOS Y NOS FUIMOS's rating of the film Raw

    Aunque la debutante Julia Ducorneau maneja el poco novedoso asunto con un aceptable nivel de elegancia formal, el resultado es una perfectamente inofensiva cinta de horror que no tiene porque no ser del agrado de los amantes del cine galo, pero que seguro decepcionará a quienes acudan a verla con la morbosa intención de presenciar un cruento desfile de tripas, chorros de sangre y asesinatos al por mayor.

  • Jordan Kaltz's rating of the film Raw

    new French extremity already happened Julie!!! And Claire Denis already made this movie but 100x better and without the irritating back drop of college initiation - also there's no subtlety to this film whatsoever and it Doesn't take much skill to gross people out with gore so , no props for that either
