Not many things could upstage a scene in a horror movie where a demonic creature pisses on a priest and “baptizes” him. But a sweet mullet haircut sure as hell could.
Rawhead Rex is a 1986 hilariously ‘bad but good’ horror movie that was conceived by the master mind of Clive Barker. I’m not going to get too much into the storyline that revolves around an evil pagan god with big ass teeth tearing some shit up in a little Irish town. I’m talking about hair here! And my oh my does Rawhead Rex have a sweet set of locks on that big cranium of his. The hair definitely has a Gene Simmons kind of texture to it, but if anything – that makes it even more amazing. So because of that alone, it’s no surprise to proclaim that Rawhead Rex and his hair was indeed a Great Moment In Horror Hair History!
A nice set of hair can really make a movie. Sure it can be distracting, but when it’s luxurious and instantly camera-ready, it will make your viewing experience all the more enjoyable. Welcome to Great Moments In Horror Hair History! A place where you’ll get an eye full of glorious locks from the world of horror cinema past and present. Just try not to get too aroused.
My first induction into this illustrious category is Buddy Repperton from 1983’s killer car movie, Christine. Buddy is a bully, but Buddy’s hair is anything but. It’s dreamy and the added mutton chop sideburns only enhance the appearance. All of his bullying can be easily forgotten once you gaze your eyes upon his impressive mane. Prepare yourself ladies (and some gentlemen too). I give to you: Buddy Repperton’s hair!
