Rawhead Rex (1986)

‘Rawhead Rex’ is a low budget British/Irish production. The first draft of its screenplay is by the renowned fantasy and horror novelist and film director Clive Barker, still credited as the sole screenwriter but has since disowned his involvement with the project. The filmmakers butchered it so it would service the needs for a typical monster movie rather than being a faithful adaptation of Barker’s own short story of the same title from ‘Books of Blood Volume 3’ first published in 1984.
