“Shocking but not sensationalist, this is a strong cannibal movie worth chewing over.”~Kim Newman, Empire
Aroview: A bright young veterinary student and ardent vegetarian 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, writer-director Julia Ducournau balances tension and suspense with some unforgettably monstrous moments.

4 stars (Very Good) A queasy, darkly comic story of transgressive maturation: Cronenbergia in the Euro-realist handheld style. It doesn't entirely add up but committed acting and a handful of stunning scenes ("bikini wax" is all I'll say) leave quite an impression.~fairbrother
