After seeing this monstrosity I know now why Clive Barker took the helm on so many of his other works.

I love ye'olde Rawhead

"I don't fancy there are too many Irish horror films out there so I'm going to go out on a limb and say this is the best one ever made. Although the monster walks around in army boots and has little glowing Christmas lights for eyeballs I think he looks great! And he tears people's heads off like nobody's business. When I was ten I accidentally stumbled upon this film at a friend's house as we sat down to watch the Ewok Adventure and instead got Rawhead jumping out of a barn and peeling some Irish bloke's face off. I've loved it ever since. Subsequent viewings have lessened the film's appeal for me, but I still think that if you're lucky enough to find Rawhead Rex (the film, not the monster) in a video store don't leave witout it!"

"Better than Ghoulies 2!I don't think there's ever been a better movie than Raw Head Rex. A Beautiful Mind? Please! I don't think we'll ever see a character as well developed as Declan O'Brien ever again. And David Dukes? I think those snobs at the Oscar committee overlooked a great talent once again. (Take note, Russell Crowe - THIS is acting!) And I can't say enough about the disturbing trailer-park massacre, or the "surprise" shocker scenes such as Raw Head jumping out from behind some bushes (off-cue) to gnaw off some poor sod's hand. Voila! And those beady, laser-pointer eyes! How did they do that?!! Well, I guess sometimes a film comes along , and everyone else in Hollywood knows that they've got some catching up to do..."
Rawhead Rex was both fun and scary.

"It was a good movie, but the make-up was not the best for a horror film. There are some great shots in the film. It looks very creepy and horrifying. The best part of the film takes place in a trailer park. That is where the horror is at its peak. This is one of the best horror films in the last twenty years. Don't watch it alone, you will not be able to sleep."
