Synopsis

Dare you watch Ali Catterall’s film choice? It may take you out of your comfort zone, but this is not your run of the mill frightener. This cannibal horror film follows a 16-year-old vegetarian who is forced to eat a raw rabbit liver during her school’s humiliating hazing ritual. After devouring the meat, she starts to crave more flesh. The movie made its premiere at this year’s
Cannes Film Festival where it won the FIPRESCI Prize and was recently screened at the Toronto Film Festival. After watching the film at TIFF, Joe Lipsett  wrote that it, “perfectly balances horrific and comedic elements".
