'Raw' (Mar. 10)

A strong stomach is recommended for anyone who watches this witty, perverse French-Belgian horror film, about a young veterinary student who develops a taste for human flesh. (The movie that made viewers pass out at last year's Toronto Film Festival? This is the one.) First-time writer-director Julia Ducournau uses cannibalism as a coming-of-age metaphor, comparing her heroine's experiments with new food-sources to what every sheltered teen goes through when they first experience the freedom of adulthood. Clever symbolism doesn't make Raw's gory feasting any less disgusting though – or its story any less terrifying. NM
