RAWHEAD REX
1986, Kino Lorber, 89 min, Ireland/UK/USA, Dir: George Pavlou

Bursting from beneath thunderstruck Earth, Rawhead Rex shares more with the rubber-suit monster movies of yore than his much darker cousins, the Cenobites from HELLRAISER, though both were spawned from Clive Barker’s Books of Blood. Director George Pavlou took the ancient pagan God from Barker’s script and transformed him into a 9-foot-tall, punk-rock ogre moving at full ramming speed across the Irish countryside - no man, no child, no trailer park and especially no priest can withstand his unholy rampage.
