Raised as a rigorous vegetarian, doe-eyed freshman Justine following in her parents' footsteps, she is sent off to the reputable Saint-Exupéry Veterinary school where the black sheep of the family, her big sister Alexia, is already studying. There, young virginal Justine, leaving the familial shelter, will abruptly move into a mad new world of school traditions, vicious initiation tests and hard partying, utterly unprepared though for the rough year start only rush week's mandatory hazing can offer. As a result, with Alexia reluctantly showing her the ropes but only halfway, Justine during the long-established trial of raw offal-eating, she will be forced to chew over her devout herbivorous beliefs and swallow a fresh chunk of bright-red rabbit kidney, unknowingly descending deep into her uncharted animalistic tendencies.

So it went, the movie that people ran out of the screenings. people given vomit bags at the entry, the stakes were high for this Belgium France co-op. So for me it was a go to see what it was all about because I do remember A Serbian Film (2010) which had the same commotion and it was indeed a hell of a movie. With Raw I was left with a hunger.
It was told that it was going to be in your face and in some points it did but after 20 minutes I was already in panic. Where's the horror, where's the gore? And after 24 minutes the first horror comes in and from then the toilet scene did remind me of all those Asian horrors with the long-haired girls and stuff coming out of their mouth. But hey, I am a bit negative I guess. It's not all that bad, the effects are stunning but to say that it is all that gory as being told. On that part, the horror, the cannibalism and the gore it's a letdown. People could get offended by some parts but overall it's a bit too low on the red stuff.
Is it still worth seeing. Oh yes, because it really is above mediocre but for gorehounds this isn't going to be their stuff. It's a bit like Eat (2014). It delivers for some. To be honest, i like but the overrated fuss about it teared this a few point downward on the rating.
