Sometimes the past should stay buried... A king of death and darkness, imprisoned in ancient times, has unleashed a bloodthirsty reign of terror on the present. The string of bizarre killings have the local constabulary chasing shadows, while a local Irish priest (Niall Tobin) fears that deep in the minds of his congregation fester primitive Pagan beliefs. Could an American visitor (David Dukes), his enchanting wife (Kelly Piper) and their young son hold the key to the bloody slayings? Folklore made flesh, Rawhead Rex will leave your nerves in shreds... Hold on to your head. You just might lose it!
