What a time to be alive, huh?
Clive Barker famously described the screen version of titular creature Rawhead Rex in George Pavlou’s 1986 film as looking like a “9-foot tall phallus with teeth,” and he’s made no bones about the fact that he wasn’t very happy with how the “Books of Blood” adaptation turned out. And indeed it’s a pretty bad movie. A charmingly bad movie, but a bad movie all the same.
That said, you probably want to own it on Blu-ray. We know you do. Because we do too.
And guess what?! Kino Lorber just announced on Twitter that not only is a 4K restoration of Rawhead Rex coming to theaters this summer, but a Blu-ray will be out by Halloween!

In Rawhead Rex…
Ireland will never be the same after Rawhead Rex, a particularly nasty demon, is released from his underground prison by an unwitting farmer. The film follows Rex’s cross country rampage, while a man struggles to stop it.
