This week we’re looking at Julia Ducournau’s RAW, the coming-of-age cannibalism shocker that stars Garance Marillier, Ella Rumpf, and Rabah Nait Oufella. Does it live up to its film festival notoriety?

This week’s book recommendation was Livia Llewellyn’s ENGINES OF DESIRE (link: http://amzn.to/2mUH7Bj) and FURNACE (http://amzn.to/2mzHqyZ).

The bean movie

stalcinuxoxo says:

dont konw what u mean ? the movie is boring , i miss movies like inside

Jorge Andrade says:

If this movie were an American production, it wouldn't be so overrated as it is.

A simple pretentious movie that relies on nude shots and gore to get its popularity.

we just saw a slasher called one night of fear on amazon hd was pretty cool would like to see your take

Anai Bendai says:

I'm a 17 year old male and I watched this film with my grandma and I deeply regretted it after a while. Holy shit. When the dog starts licking at her pussy – I was like… man this was really the wrong movie to watch with my grandma.

MissCurlyHair says:

Had to watch it by myself cause no one could sit through the whole movie with me sigh

Deadly Pouliche says:

I love your take on the movie, good job reviewing it with all the emotions involved.

Poyni Desai says:

Mayor of R'lyeh says:

Adam, thanks for the great review. Will definitely have to check it out. Kinda sounds like it might be a great companion to "Trouble Every Day" (2001) by Claire Denis. If you haven't seen it, make sure you check it out!

Kid 77 says:

hey there, Adam. great job with the video. and it's funny that you mentioned Exponetial because a few days ago I watched a guy on you tube review your book and he spoke very highly of it.

I am really excited for this one. I was just going to see it vod- but after hearing you talk about it I think I might have to make a trek. I'm a country librarian, but I live close enough to a college town where they will be showing this. Have you seen In My Skin? It is a French film from about 15 years ago about a woman who self cannibalizes? It is really gross, and also super sad. Worth a look. I love livia Lewellyn. I just recently reread some stories in Furnace. I also just finished Fever Dream by Samantha Schweblin, which is not horror but super unsettling and great. She is Argentinian, which is new for me. I do not know too much about Argentina, so I am probably missing whole textual levels, but I still really enjoyed it.

Alexandria Vaun says:

Is this at all like Green Inferno? I can't wait to see this. Too bad it's not playing here yet. Great review as always Adam!

Jordan M. says:

I'M SO EXCITED FOR THIS FILM!!!! (ik that sounds fucked up but it's a very awesome looking horror movie.) i made a mini "trailer" for RAW and it would be really cool if you could check it out. sorry if I'm annoying lol. But back on topic of the film: this movie is hypnotizing in a way. It has some really cool cinematography and at times reminds me of the neon demon in a way. btw, i love the way you describe things in this video. you have a very cool vocabulary. you now have a new subscriber. 😊. btw the lead actress is so incredibly convincing in JUST the trailer. OMG. the way she stares and her presence all together is just this girl you feel scared for. i can't wait to see this film. sorry I'm blabbing lol.

Shira says:

great review! 🙂 looking forward to watching this
