SOMEONE HAS AWAKENED HIM

Adapted for the screen by acclaimed horror writer Clive Barker (Hellraiser, Nightbreed) from his short story of the same name, Rawhead Rex sees a hulking, ancient demon tearing a bloody swathe across the Irish countryside.

When an unsuspecting farmer pulls up a stone column embedded in a barren field, he accidentally unleashes hell by freeing Rawhead Rex - a hulking monster that has been trapped there for thousands of years. With the seemingly unstoppable demon rampaging through the local village, American historian Howard Hallenbeck is faced with the task of putting Rawhead back in the ground for good. 

The first of several films to be adapted from Barker's seminal Books of Blood series, Rawhead Rex has garnered a strong cult following over the years - now clawing its way to the surface in a stunning new 4K restoration from the original camera negative.
