RAW (2017) New Horror Movie Review

This week we’re looking at Julia Ducournau’s RAW, the coming-of-age cannibalism shocker that stars Garance Marillier, Ella Rumpf, and Rabah Nait Oufella. Does it live up to its film festival notoriety?

Mark Holliday says:

Marie-Eve Therrien says:

I love your take on the movie, good job reviewing it with all the emotions involved.

Paula Sophia says:

Had to watch it by myself cause no one could sit through the whole movie with me *sigh*

Poyni Desai says:

Any idea if it’s online?

One-Eye says:

Saw it today and loved it. It’s basically the GINGER SNAPS of cannibalism.

Hunter Shea says:

Loved this! Might be my favorite of the year so far.

Jirou Lierge says:

You make it sound very boring.

Anai Bendai says:

I’m a 17 year old male and I watched this film with my grandma and I deeply regretted it after a while. Holy shit. When the dog starts licking at her pussy – I was like… man this was really the wrong movie to watch with my grandma.

rob balboni says:

Lol “butchered” names

Bee Diamant says:

where can i even watch this movie?? i can’t find any movie listings, dvds, or streaming options?

Mayor of R'lyeh says:

Adam, thanks for the great review. Will definitely have to check it out. Kinda sounds like it might be a great companion to “Trouble Every Day” (2001) by Claire Denis. If you haven’t seen it, make sure you check it out!

random girl on the interwebs says:

great review! 🙂 looking forward to watching this

One-Eye says:

After THE EYES OF MY MOTHER it seems the extreme art horror subgenre is off and running.

napoleon yong says:

basically tokyo ghoul? without weird super powers and contact lenses

Jimmy Liljestrand says:

I passed out 40 mins in

Kid 77 says:

hey there, Adam. great job with the video. and it’s funny that you mentioned Exponetial because a few days ago I watched a guy on you tube review your book and he spoke very highly of it.


rowan sands says:

I am really excited for this one. I was just going to see it vod- but after hearing you talk about it I think I might have to make a trek. I’m a country librarian, but I live close enough to a college town where they will be showing this. Have you seen In My Skin? It is a French film from about 15 years ago about a woman who self cannibalizes? It is really gross, and also super sad. Worth a look. I love livia Lewellyn. I just recently reread some stories in Furnace. I also just finished Fever Dream by Samantha Schweblin, which is not horror but super unsettling and great. She is Argentinian, which is new for me. I do not know too much about Argentina, so I am probably missing whole textual levels, but I still really enjoyed it.
