Most eagerly awaited horror movie of the year comes to Blu-ray

11/08/2017

Monster Pictures will release one of the most eagerly anticipated horror films of 2017. Rolling Stone calls it a “modern horror masterpiece.” From director Julia Ducournau, winner of Best Director at Austin Fantastic Fest and Director's Fortnight at the Cannes Film Festival, Raw will receive a long awaited Blu-ray and DVD release September 20.

A teenage girl joins her sister at a prestigious veterinary college. Here she is forced to partake in a hazing ritual offensive to her vegan upbringing when she consumes raw rabbit liver. This tipping point develops within her an insatiable desire for flesh – of all types.

Harrowing and beautiful, Raw is a coming-of-age story like no other. The film delves into an uncompromising account of family and cannibalism, stripping away the flesh of its major themes with sharp intelligence. It will come as no surprise to the uninitiated as to why it is being regarded as one of the most promising debuts in the genre space in eons.

Winner First Feature Film at London Film Festival, Best Feature Length Film at Sitges along with over another dozen international awards and citations, Raw features superb performances from Garance Marillier, Ella Rumpf and Rabah Nait Oufella.

Sight and Sound calls Raw an “extraordinary first feature… heady, blood-soaked examination of femininity, sexual awakening and the sisterly bond.”

Justin Chang of the Los Angeles Times observes it “shreds its characters flesh – to say nothing of the viewer's nerves – with a discretion and skill that I can describe only as exquisite.”

Special features include Audio Commentary with Ducournau moderated by Emma Westwood; Monster Fest Q&A; an Interview with Julia Ducournau; Trailers and Ad Spots.
