Rawhead Rex (1986; George Pavlou) – Best of Dare Daniel Rerun 13

“Get upstairs, fuckface! I can’t keep God waiting!”

Daniel and Corky emerge from the ground to revisit their first Scare Daniel review: the slop-dog 1986 monster movie Rawhead Rex.


U.S. theatrical release date: April 17, 1987

Critics scores: 25 on Rotten Tomatoes

This week’s Darer: Matthew Dougherty

Why did Matthew dare Daniel and Corky to watch this movie? “Just terrible B horror movie. Bad effects, terrible plot, monster mask is incredibly fake.”

IMDB 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.”
