Every few years there's a film that plays at festivals and shocks audiences to the point of vomiting and fainting in aisles. Saw is a notable example, as was the French film Martyrs and the disgusting Cannibal Holocaust. In 2017, that film is RAW— a French-Belgian cannibal horror directed by up and coming auteur, Julia Ducournau. During the Toronto Film Festival showing of the film paramedics were called as the images onscreen proved too much for a number of viewers.

It's rare for a film that is hyped in such a way to be critically acclaimed, but that's exactly what RAW is. In fact, it received the critics award at the Cannes Film Festival, the Sutherland Award at the London Film Festival, and a number of other accolades only given to the finest pieces of cinematic art.

Critics have called it deeply moving, profoundly symbolic, impeccably well-made, and unrelentingly creative, and it's clear that despite the violence, that this is something film buffs and horror fans have to see. Attend the Auckland premiere at Academy Cinemas if you're brave enough.
