Much Lauded Film RAW from Filmmaker Julia Ducournau gets slot at FrightFest Glasgow replacing PATIENT ZERO
Due to circumstances beyond the control of FrightFest, they have had to cancel the Glasgow screening of PATIENT ZERO.
However, FrightFest are delighted to announce that the replacement attraction is the much lauded French movie RAW, heralding the no-hold-barred return of extreme French horror cinema and debut director Julia Ducournau as a major genre talent to watch.
Here are the details.
SAT 25 FEB – GFT Screen 1 18:55 RAW (Preview)
The Cannes Critics Week winner of numerous awards at every major fantasy festival, director Julia Ducournau’s debut feature about one woman’s awakening to the pleasures of the flesh both returns French horror cinema to genre extremes. Bold, daring, provocative and shocking, shy vegetarian Justine attends her first year at vetinarian college and is forced into eating raw liver in a vicious hazing process by older students. But soon she develops an unhealthy taste for meat and her new carnivore persona drives her to commit acts of increasing savagery as her unquenched sexual urges turn into an appetite for human flesh.
FrightFest. Director: Julia Ducournau. Cast: Garance Marillier, Ella Rumpf, Rabah Nait Oufella. France/Belgium 2016. 88 mins. Thanks to Universal Pictures.
