Second Sight Films Gives Julia Ducournau’s RAW A Delicious Special Edition Release

Movies In Focus was hugely impressed by Julia Ducournau’s Raw when I caught it at the Mayhem Film Festival in 2016. It features a brilliant central performance from Garance Marillier – one which transcends the film’s genre roots. The carnivorous French-Belgian horror film went on to garner rave reviews – and now it’s getting a fantastic new Special Edition release from the brilliant Second Sight Films

Due to be dished up on 19 April 2021, the delicious disc is loaded with extras – and it certainly won’t leave you asking for more (check the extras out below).

The synopsis:

Shy student Justine (Garance Marillier), heads to a veterinary school and is subjected a tough series of hazing rituals from fellow students. And it’s even tougher for vegetarian Justine as she is covered in blood and forced to eat raw meat. But after tasting the flesh, Justine finds herself craving even more meat – and it doesn’t matter if it’s animal or human as her uncontrollable desires lead to a horrific outcome.
