If you don’t like being surprised and the sight of blood has you covering your eyes, you should avoid horror movies as a general rule. And you should steer very, very wide of Raw, a new horror movie that was a big hit on the 2016 film festival circuit. Oh, and sorry about the image above, but, hey, the headline probably should have been enough of a warning of what was in this post.
If, however, you’re up for of the bloodier, nastier, and devilishly unnerving horror movies to come along in recent years, you should eagerly press play on the below trailer for the French horror movie. And don’t worry, it’s totally spoiler free. It’s also plot free. And dialogue free. But, again, it is not blood free. There’s kind of a lot in it.
Since the trailer does a truly magnificent job of selling the mood of Raw but not the story, we’ll fill in the gaps. It’s about a young woman attending veterinarian school. There she deals with all the same things most college kids do. Hormones and lust. Changing bodies and changing minds. New friends and family secrets. And, naturally, an increasingly unquenchable craving for meat. Tasty, tasty human meat.
Check it out. But be warned, this trailer is totally NSFW.
Raw is in theaters on March 10, 2017.
