Raw (2017) - Rotten Tomatoes

Raw (2017)



Critic Consensus: Raw's lurid violence and sexuality live up to its title, but they're anchored with an immersive atmosphere and deep symbolism that linger long after the provocative visuals fade.

Critic Reviews for Raw

All Critics (84) | Top Critics (28)

If you can see past the rain of blood, Raw is a gorgeously moving film about fear and adolescence -- albeit one best viewed on an empty stomach.

The New Republic
Top Critic

This gruesome French horror flick (2016) functions more as a mystery than as an action film, with an endless drip drip drip of revelation that gradually exposes a terrifying world behind the everyday.

Chicago Reader
Top Critic

This smart, funny and extremely dark shocker gives writer/director Julia Ducournau a debut showcasing her prodigious creative instincts and perverse sense of humor.

Minneapolis Star Tribune
Top Critic

"Raw" is a lot of things: a terrific feature debut by a promising filmmaker; an effective metaphor; an acting showcase; and, not least of all, a gross-out horror film.

Arizona Republic
Top Critic

Its command of tone is constant, even in the film's darkly droll final moments, during which you may not know whether to laugh or gag.

Washington Post
Top Critic

It's mainly about all the BS women have to put up with today, in the name of fitting in and growing up. The cannibalism's the extension, the logical end point, of the other stuff.
