Rawhead Rex is the titular monster from the short story of the same name by the horror author Clive Barker, and its 1986 fantasy horror film adaptation of the same name. The original short story was published in the third volume of the Books Of Blood series.
In the 1986 film, he was portrayed by Heinrich von Schellendorf.
Rawhead Rex was an ancient, malevolent, carnivorous, and bloodthirsty beast and the living embodiment of the male sex drive who terrorized the English town, Zeal, in which he resided in. Rawhead was known for devouring children, and violating and impregnating women, with his only fear being that of pregnant women or women on their periods. Rawhead was eventually defeated when the townsfolk buried him alive, where he remained for centuries.
Centuries later, Rawhead was freed from his imprisonment by a hapless farmer, who Rawhead immediately murdered by shoving him down the hole he was imprisoned in. Seeking to regain his power, Rawhead went on a killing spree, first targeting a farm, murdering the family present there. Rawhead then attacked a police officer, castrating him with his claw. After discovering gasoline and learning how to light it aflame, Rawhead set the helpless officer on fire, killing him.
Arriving at the local church, Rawhead corrupted the local Verger, who aids him in murdering the Vicar, Coot. Rawhead continues his killing spree, devouring a child in front of his father, Ron. It is then discovered that Rawhead's weakness is that of a female symbol of a pregnant woman, Rawhead's antithesis and his one fear. When Ron uncovers the idol, Rawhead, fearful of being defeated, sets the town alight to murder the townsfolk, killing the Verger as well. In spite of Rawhead's efforts, he is overwhelmed when Ron uses the symbol to stall him, weakening him and allowing the townsfolk to mob him, beating him until Ron uses the idol to smash Rawhead's skull, thus killing him.
British director George Pavlou directed a film based loosely off the novel in 1986 called Rawhead Rex. In the film, Rawhead's design is vastly different; the sexual elements are largely toned down, only being alluded to by Rawhead's ability to be defeated by a magic rock which only works when handled by a woman, and when he baptised one of his followers by ejaculating on their face and body. The monster isn't a rapist and simply kills humans, usually by piercing their jugular artery on his canines. He appears as an ogre dressed for a night spent at a rock concert with a mowhark, red glowing eyes, light brown skin, chimpanzee -like facial features, with lion-like teeth and a row of human -like teeth further down his gullet.
Rawhead's looks in the short story are different from his movie counterpart. Clive Barker described the monster as a 9-foot tall walking phallus with a large mouth and teeth, while in the film, he looks more like a traditional ogre.
