This movie was not as gory or disturbing as I thought it to be. In fact, it was more full of immature initiations than anything. Sure there were some scenes that made me squirm, but nothing really stood out to me. I mean, it just felt like an overall pointless film. Throw in some blood, have a homely vegetarian girl eat meat, etc and call this a horror movie, thriller or whatever? Please. I wasn't born yesterday.

An extremely disturbing French art film. Definitely not for children.

Raw is a cultural commentary on certain societal norms. The story relies on gore to convey its lack of creativity. This within itself is a statement on the behaviour of an individual culture as viewed through dominance of others. Just another zombie movie with a twist.

Excellent film! The acting is great and realistic, the story line is great.
It's almost as if this movie takes a deep look at what it really is like to be a sixteen year old girl who's on her on for the first time, exploring her sexual awakening, giving in to peer pressure just to fit in, and finding out dark family secrets.

This movie was smart, original and well thought out, we need more horror films that are directed by women like this one was. I feel like this movie has a chance to be a classic if given the chance.

Huge disclaimer: This is NOT for the faint of heart. It's bloody, brutal, gross, and nauseating. So be forewarned. THAT ASIDE: this is actually a really good movie. It's not quite true horror, but the events are truly horrifying.
