Clive Barker* 1980s Horror * Rubber Monster Suits *
Ireland will never be the same after Rawhead Rex, a particularly nasty demon, is released from his underground prison by an unwitting farmer. The film follows Rex's cross country rampage, while a man struggles to stop it.
The Hexploitation Film Festival is proud to kick off its first-ever screening under its new name with Kino Lorber's brand new 4K restoration of the infamous RAWHEAD REX, adapted by acclaimed horror writer Clive Barker from his Books of Blood.
Disowned by Clive Barker but embraced by fans of cult B-movies around the world, RAWHEAD REX is the gruesome story of an ancient demon unleashed from hell after a millennia to rip shit up across the rural towns of Ireland. Rubber monster suits, misty fields, decapitated heads, optical lasers, and a "baptism" scene you have to see to believe! Only the kind of cult film weirdness that could be cooked up in the 80s.
Hilariously awful or awfully hilarious? You decide!
