French filmmaker Julia Ducournau is famously known for making audiences faint with her disgustingly beautiful directorial debut film Raw (2016). It had the hype, the artistic swagger, and unparalleled performances that made it so much more than your typical horror film, and debatably, one of the genre’s best of the year it came out.
To discuss this film my guest Amber T. from the social media horror blog @hornbloodfire comes on the show all the way from South Korea and gives a perspective on the cannibalistic film that we both could not stop geeking over.
Amber has a diverse love of bleak films, Japanese ghost stories, and bloody entertainment that make most viewers’ stomachs turn. Together, our ecstatic conversation covers Ducournau’s brilliance, hot takes on popular horror films (is The Quiet Place overrated?), and our mutual discovery of the possible cinematic universe that Raw is a part of.
As a bonus, Amber reveals plans about her own upcoming podcast and website which are in the works, and will explore deeper into some hidden gems even the most dedicated horror fans may have missed.
This is one gruesome discussion you won’t want to miss and will definitely leave you hungry for more…
