Desperate to fit in, she strays from her family principles & eats a slice of RAW meat for the first time. Justine will soon face the terrible and really unexpected consequences as her true self begins to emerge.
Personal opinion
Raw is certainly a nasty movie, its gore is strategic and sparse. Good but definitely not for everyone. The director shows us that the girl has a skin allergy towards meat so she denied eating an animal’s kidney but some moments ago she had a blood bath of a horse by the seniors which should make her unsettle but guess what she was smiling which makes you feel strange. I think they’ve to build up more momentum to take the lead actress obsessed with meat otherwise it’s good horror.

There are some elements from Ravenous 2001, Japanese horror film ‘The Audition‘ with hints of blinding and limb amputations.

Personal opinion
Definitely worth to a watch, it kept me invested the whole time wanting to see who would make it out alive, what plan they would come up next, and I felt while it was a bit exaggerated in terms of how a situation like that would play out, it was one of the more realistic horror situations, something like this could actually happen to just about anybody traveling & entering a place they aren’t familiar with, stumble upon something they shouldn’t see. I really loved the acting and it is a must-watch movie.
