The Rawhead Rex film made me laugh a hell of lot harder than most of the lame ass comedies people keep talking me into seeing. The story is great though.

also, does anyone have any info on "the beings?" i've been to the website but i can't find any information on a release date... it looks kind of interesting in a "fire in the sky" type of way...
It's in Books of Blood vol 3 and is called Rawhead Rex.

Excellent short story. Eclipse did an amazing job on a graphic novel also. The movie is a waste of time for anyone over the age of 10. For christs' sake, the monster had light-up eyes and the face was a single-expression plastic Hallowe'en mask, it was TERRIBLE. A remake that is true to the story would be wonderful.

I have a dubbed vhs copy of this movie also, and think it's a fun film. I also have been saying for years that this film needs a remake.

I watched this earlier today and I loved it. I love horror movies where something happens in a small town and everyone gets involved. I loved the cheesy/80's look of the monster.

Check it out...don't expect anything spectacular...but it'll pass 90 minutes pretty quickly! 3.5/5

I'd party with Rex. He looks like he's going to kick in a wall and eat someone's deep dish pizza, then get piss drunk and puke on the floor.

I realy don't remember alot about this movie. I remember a part where the police are trying to stop Rex and that's about it. I seriously need to see this again.

This was one of those awesomely bad movies. I got a bootleg of it from a friend a few months ago. Worth watching, but I wouldn't spend a lot of money on it.

It's good stupid fun, and everyone has the Scottish accent.
