Raw Movie Synopsis:
Garance Miller, who plays the role of Justine, the protagonist was a vegetarian all her life. She joins the vet school to pursue her career in treating animals. A hazing ritual (technically ragging) takes it to the next level when one of her senior sister, Alexia (played by Ella Rumpf) forces her to eat rabbit kidneys raw out of a container placed on a table. This results in the obvious puking and throwing up. Strangely enough, that incident also reveals a previously unknown desire in her for raw flesh. The craving, oddly enough, starts off with a painful rash and she is seen itching her whole body in various scenes. The craving then builds up over time. Justine, unable to control this hunger and craving for raw flesh, displays it by eating Alexia’s body part that gets cut off in an accident involving the use of scissors during a Brazilian wax. Alexia, then reveals to her that what she feels is a familial trait. She also shows how she forces people to crash their vehicles and die just so that she can have the meat and fulfil her craving. The overwhelming nature of the craving that alexia haves is shown also in Justine as she limps through college, as a socially immature person, and also one who isn’t ready for the adult acts of college, such as wild parties, getting wasted and sloshed, involving in drunken acts of violence, teachers who don’t care and, most prominent of all, romantic sexual feelings for her gay roommate Adrien (played by Rabah Nait Oufella). The siblings start to grow apart through verbal bouts and it escalates very quickly. The craving leads to Justine eating various kind of raw meat and also blood mixed with it. The sibling rivalry grows so much leading to Alexia killing Adrien. Justine discovers that Alexia not only killed the gay roommate, but also ate most of his right leg off, right from his body, being the cannibal she is. She does this because her craving for raw meat is so high, she cannot think about anything else. Alexia is taken to prison for the murder of Adrien. Their father (Laurent Lucas) reveals to Justine that their mother too had the same cannibalistic desire. He also tells Justine that he himself had discovered that side of their mother when he was in school with her.

Raw Movie Review:
The movie has received a lot of acclaim from the critics’ side, but not as much from the audience side of it. It managed to scour only a little more than 35000 dollars at the box office, after being produced at a budget of 3.8 million dollars. IMDB has rated this movie 7.3/10 and the review giant Rotten Tomatoes has given the movie 89%. The movie is extremely gory scenes which, unlike other war movies, which have gory war scenes too, are difficult to watch. The gut reaction to puke is almost overwhelming in some scenes of the movie. The movie is brilliantly directed by Julia Docornau, and has found its spot in various film festivals of the world. It is surprising how a movie of this sort ended up so high on the prided movie festivals’ list. The cannibalism in the movie seems to be deliciously real and the ambience of the movie gives Goosebumps of sorts. The movie also closely resembles the 2009 supernatural thriller “Jennifer’s body” at times. There isn’t any chemistry to be talked about neither is there anything to mention about the screen presence of the various actors. All the movie seems to have achieved is because of the director. Watch raw movie online free if you want to experience the “deliciously real” cannibalism.
