The writer Howard Hallenbeck is spending vacation in the countryside of Ireland with his wife Elaine and children researching legends and myths for his book. Meanwhile, a farmer is trying to remove an old column on the field and accidentally unleashes the evil pagan god Rawhead Rex that begins a crime spree in the village where Howard and his family are lodged.Written by

Heinrich Von Schellendorf, the man under the Rawhead Rex suit, was only 19 at the time of filming. See more »
In several scenes the monster's mask is obvious. The spot where the mask ends gets loose from time to time is especially obvious where the neck meets the shoulder. The most obvious is during the attack on the trailer park right after a propane tank explodes and Rawhead runs toward and attacks the man who fired the gun. See more »

Funny B-movie with added bonus to Irish viewers
This is an hilarious horror flick, if you like bad movies and especially if you remember Glenroe et al from the 80's..its a veritable spot the face. I loved the fact that the 'bad' priest was church of Ireland, another classic Irish touch.
I found this really amusing, as I love this sort of bad movie. You'll never look at a fairy fort or ring fort the same way after seeing this!
