Audience Reviews for Rawhead Rex

  • Dec 30, 2011
    Another bad adaptation of Clive Barker's story. Rawhead Rex looked like a man in a more elaborated ape suit. The acting was only OK... The excellent story became another "Creature Feature" But since it's a low budget film, it's actually not as bad as it could be potentially

    Formulaic but some memorable scenes.

    Rubber monster runs amok for 90 minutes. If you are into movies that are 'so bad it's funny' this here is a goldmine.
