Join us for another season of cult cinema classics, screened deep within the Redcliffe Caves – it’s an unforgettable way to discover, or rediscover, some of the silver screen’s hidden gems, sleeper hits and genre favourites. Venture underground into one of the most unique locations in Bristol, themed like a military bunker specially for the occasion. Treat yourself to a beer onsite from our festival partners, Wickwar Wessex Brewing, and forget the outside world for a couple of hours…
Our late night Saturday slot plays host to a guest Horror In The Caves screening; we’re serving up the recent cannibal horror-drama Raw, which allegedly caused audience members to faint during the premiere…!
Please make sure that you have read the guidelines contained in the Important Information tab above before booking your tickets.
Justine (Garance Marillier) comes from a family of vets, and is starting veterinary college where her older sister Alexia (Ella Rumpf) currently studies. Justine is a vegetarian, but after being forced to consume meat during a hazing initiation, she develops an insatiable lust for flesh that not only puts her in conflict with Alexia but leads her to the brink of sanity as she contemplates committing unspeakable acts.

THEY SAY: “This intense French thriller on a student with taste for human flesh is a clever feminist parable – and a contender for best horror movie of the decade […] your appetite for smart, savvy, sick-as-f**k horror will be sated.” – David Fear, Rolling Stone, 2017
WE SAY: Despite its infamy due to the festival fainting incidents, to write Raw off as a cheap shock spatterfest is to do it a gross injustice. It’s an alluring coming-of-age story, albeit one interspersed with the stuff of nightmares. Certainly not one for the faint-hearted, but a rewarding experience for those brave enough to give it a taste.
