“Shocking but not sensationalist, this is a strong cannibal movie worth chewing over”~Kim Newman, Empire

Aroview: Ambitious and thoroughly riveting girl-centric cannibalism movie which reinvigorates the boundary-pushing "New French Extremity" sub-genre of horror.

A bright young veterinary student and ardent vegan is unexpectedly subjected to a series of cruel hazing rituals in her first week at college, which unleash an insatiable hunger for human flesh. Vivid and bracing, but presenting a compelling psychological portrait of a woman seeking self-identity in a hostile social environment, this recalls the best of David Cronenberg, with writer-director Julia Ducournau masterfully balancing tension and suspense with some unforgettably monstrous moments.
