Sunday Territorian - - FRONTIER -

IT’S not of­ten we get to see a hor­ror film hail­ing from France. And it is not of­ten we get to see a hor­ror film as au­da­ciously con­fronting and wor­ry­ingly clever as Raw.

This is the tough-to-stom­ach story of Jus­tine (played by Garance Mar­il­lier), a firstyear vet­eri­nary stu­dent who used to be an outand-proud veg­e­tar­ian. How­ever, af­ter a school rit­ual got out of hand, Jus­tine dis­cov­ered she didn’t mind meat af­ter all. As long it is hu­man. That’s right: the hun­gry hero­ine of this film is a can­ni­bal, and when the urge for a snack at­tack takes her, ev­ery­one had bet­ter watch out.

Af­ter a de­cep­tively mild start, this full-on movie shifts up sev­eral grue­some gears very quickly. Con­sider your­self warned.

Garance Mar­il­lier makes a stun­ning de­but in the creepy Raw
