Consuming raw or undercooked meats may increase your risk of foodborne illness (and desire for human flesh...)

From Curator Stephanie Shaffir:

Another sadistic flick brought to us by a female filmmaker is Raw. A girl is attending her first year at veterinary college and, after a lifelong vegetarian diet, she eats meat for the first time during a school hazing ritual (isn’t peer pressure the worst?). Afterward, she begins to crave all kinds of meat, but her hunger seemingly can’t be satisfied -- until she has herself some human! While this film has ample gross moments -- more than enough to make you cringe --it is not very gory. This is a great place to start if you or your viewing partner does not have a strong stomach, has not seen many horror films, or has no tolerance for “jump scares.” However, it makes up for it with other gross cringe-worthy moments. I also find the story to be both plausible and comical.
