Yeesh... it's just as lame as I remembered. It sucks, because the story is based on is really good. But it's hard to be intimidated by the goofy looking Cross-eyed Rex.

Rex is a cool movie monster but this film was a dud.

Cheesy as all get out, but good for a laugh, even if the hero is a prick.

Okay, so for a start, the monster looks kinda silly, but if you're willing to look the other way on that front (and I am, as a fan of the original short story), there's a pretty decent little horror film here. A pagan god is released from the Earth and proceeds to debauch and devour everything around him.

It's not perfect, but it is a fairly serviceable version the source material.

Silly looking demon and some bad acting, but several fun gore scenes.

"Rawhead Rex" I think the name alone sold me on this movie. Set in a Irish Catholic country side, this demon-monster movie is simply glorious and gets better with every watch. The monster worshiping preacher really helps set the stage as Rawhead goes around devouring people like someone coming off a 7 day cleanse mixed with some bath salt consumption. The film has that classically obvious fast forward look that makes the movie that much goofier at times of high tension. The best part of the whole movie and why this will forever be a horror classic is simply that Rawheads face is out of this world rediculous. He looks like a monster that went through a Bert Reynolds like face stretching and just makes me laugh.

I wish they would remake this movie! I understand that trying to watch this movie now might have the same effect as it did in the 80's but the plot was good Rawhead himself while not looking all that great was a true monster the scene where he took that kid outta of the car and ate him was wild for the time. i just hope someone takes a chance and reboots it.

The story itself is kinda goofy, but the movie is even worse.

I was 6 years old when I first watched it and , it did scared the crap out of me, after many years later I own it and still love it, as ridicule to others I think is one of the good "real monster" movies with good effects (for its time) compared to paranormal activity crap saga this is by far the best, it is a low budget but don't have the cheap effect, they should do a remake with the new tech and have it more gory or with a more darker side. what I can say that I don't like
much is the police trying to stop evil with guns and that they don't see that is an ancient creature. as a matter of fact today 03-31-2013 im watching it!
