I always felt like Rawhead Rex should have had his own theme song. Perhaps a bouncy jingle that mentions how he enjoys baptizing priests with his urine, or maybe it could focus on what a misunderstood nice guy he is! Case in point – this emotional scene where he realizes that killing a pregnant woman does more harm than good. Get your tissues ready……
What a sensitive murderous demon. You could tell that he just wanted to rip that fetus right out and perform some kind of amazing juggling act with it, but he didn’t. His emotions took over and Rawhead Rex realized that he does indeed have a line that he won’t cross. It was moving. It was tear-jerking. And it almost made you forget that he pissed all over that priest. Almost.
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!
