Clive Barker’s ‘Rawhead Rex’ Getting 4K Restoration and Blu-Ray Release

It’s no secret that Clive Barker wasn’t very happy with how the “Books of Blood” adaptation turned out. The 1986 cult monster horror nasty Rawhead Rex was directed by George Pavlou, his take on the book receives a lot of hate.

Personally speaking, I absolutely love the film and grew up watching it. When you have such a connection with something as a kid, it stays with you forever.

Well, we have some good news for those horror fans who adore the film. Kino Lorber just announced on Twitter that Rawhead Rex will be coming to theaters in a new 4K restoration, followed by a Blu-Ray release in time for Halloween!

Rawhead Rex Synopsis:
Ireland will never be the same after Rawhead Rex, a particularly nasty demon, is released from his underground prison by an unwitting farmer. The film follows Rex’s cross country rampage, while a man struggles to stop it.

This classic trailer brings back memories for me.
