Raw & Pretentious
3 March 2017 | by presslyparrishSee all my reviews

Many are going to fall prey to the nefarious padded and planted reviews this film is receiving and while it's an enjoyable film to a degree it's more so a study of how pretentious a film can be with it's less than subtle message, and I should also note this is HARDLY A HORROR FILM. not in the sense that most Horror fans would like it to be anyways.

This is much more an art house film with horrific elements, there is not much gore, the acting is solid, and the film gets tense at best during it's most "horrific" moments.

This film has a message about meat consumption which depicts the horrors of a slaughterhouse quite literally and metaphorically and the message is received loud and clear.

If you were fooled by the marketing for The witch, and it follows, welcome to RAW. Similar promotional strategy, it is sort of a smart film at times, but completely and utterly fails as a horror film.

3/10 due to it's misrepresentation.
