Rawhead Rex

Rawhead Rex ★★★★

Maybe it’s not a good adaptation of the source material, but it’s a damn fine monster flick. I love Rawhead and his big rubbery fake-looking head. The monster eats a kid, rips a lady’s shirt off, rips throats, severs all kinds of body parts (Joe Bob would be saying “Everything rolls”) and pees on a priest who apprently loves golden showers. 

This is such a goofy fucking movie, and it’s a lot of fun. None of it is what one would call a good movie by normal standards, but how can you use a movie with dialogue like, “Get upstairs, fuckface! I can’t keep God waiting!”

Clive Barker hated this adaptation of his short story so much that he took it upon himself to direct Hellraiser. So there’s something good that came from this movie. Apparently the monster in the book is a fanged penis monster. Imagine if Clive had made this movie.
