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 and the American Historian who tries to stop him. Featuring 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!
*online tickets subject to a $1.09 service fee ea.
