Monster Pictures acquires Cannes breakout Raw

15 June, 2016 by Staff Writer

Monster Pictures picked up eight new titles at this year’s Marché du Film (the Cannes Film Market), including genre buzz film Raw.

Raw is the feature debut of French director Julia Ducournau, and tells the story of a vegetarian who takes a dark turn following a carnivorous college hazing ritual.


In what was its most successful market outing to date, Monster Pictures also snapped up Anurag Kashap’s Bombay crime thriller Psycho Raman; Nicolas Pesce’s directorial debut The Eyes of My Mother; Billy O’Brian’s I Am Not A Serial Killer, which stars Christopher Lloyd and Max Records; Rohit Mittal’s debut Autohead; Satanic; UK/Dutch slasher The Windmill Massacre, starring Noah Taylor; and an in-production horror anthology to be announced shortly.

These films add to Monster Pictures’ other recent acquisitions including Suntan, Antibirth and The Greasy Strangler.

Suntan, Psycho Raman and The Eyes of My Mother all make their Australian debuts at the Sydney Film Festival.
