Hey gang! Focus Features just released a trailer for their upcoming French horror film Raw and I’m pretty stoked. It’s the feature debut for both writer/director Julia Ducournau and star Garance Marillier.
Here’s the broad strokes. The setting is a veterinary school. Justine comes from a long line of vegetarian veterinarians. She’s the victim of some carnivorous hazing incident that causes her to have an unnatural craving for meat.
Now, I’m a vegetarian. So, I take a special joy in watching other people squirm in their seats at a movie that shows society’s typical violence towards animals. One of the first movies Old Sport and I ever saw together was Babel. There’s a scene that freaked everyone out where a chicken ran around with it’s head cut off. We just chuckled. If the trailer for Raw is any indication, it’s gonna give us plenty of those moments.
Enough of me. Let the trailer speak for itself.
Or the gorier red band trailer.
