Horns
Directed by Alexandre Aja
Written by Keith Bunin, Adapted from the novel by Joe Hill
Starring Daniel Radcliffe, Max Minghella, Juno Temple, Kelli Garner, Joe Anderson, James Remar, Kathleen Quinlan, David Morse, Heather Graham
Blu-ray | DVD | Amazon Instant Video | Netflix Streaming
Original Release Date: October 31, 2014

Kids are asleep, significant other is in bed, and you can’t sleep. I know what you’re thinking… “What’s new on Netflix?” One new release that leapt out at me was Horns. Horns is the perfect storm for horror geeks: directed by French gore-maestro Alexandre Aja, based on book by Joe Hill (son of Stephen King!!!) and starring Harry Potter himself, Daniel Radcliffe, who was surprisingly effective in his first horror film, 2012’s The Woman in Black.

We all react differently to adversity and personal trauma: we drink, we lash out, we stay close to our best friends who won’t judge us, we get makeovers. Ig Perrish (Radcliffe, in a roll that will smash your cutesy memories of a certain young wizard) does all the above, except his makeover isn’t a new haircut or trip to the day spa… it’s friggin HORNS! Yep, demon-like horns growing out of his skull. Of course, if he didn’t look guilty of murder before, he certainly looks the part now.

Movie Review: Horns
  |  @   |  

Review by Yasin Lago

Horns
Directed by Alexandre Aja
Written by Keith Bunin, Adapted from the novel by Joe Hill
Starring Daniel Radcliffe, Max Minghella, Juno Temple, Kelli Garner, Joe Anderson, James Remar, Kathleen Quinlan, David Morse, Heather Graham
Lions Gate
Rated R | 123 Minutes
Release Date: Oct 31, 2014 (Limited)

The title of the latest project by Alexandre Aja, Horns, would have you focus on a couple of appendages growing out of a young man’s head. As it turns out, that is the least of his problems. His physical setback is nothing compared to the mental and emotional toll he’ll take before his world (and reality) completely unravels. As circumstances change, our lead goes from being in a dark place to a literal and figurative descent into Hell.

When we come upon Ig Perrish (Daniel Radcliffe), life for him has begun to take a very intense turn. His beloved (by everyone) and loved girlfriend and soul mate, played as an ethereal forest nymph-next-door by Juno Temple, has been brutally murdered. Ig is implicated in this and is quickly judged by the entire community as the culprit (with no help from waitress/eyewitness Heather Graham). Now town pariah, he begins to settle into this half self-imposed exiled Limbo for lowlifes when”¦things”¦change.

Daniel Radcliffe Makes SDCC Debut At ‘Horns’ Panel; Trailer & Clip Premiered
  |  @   |  

Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe made his San Diego Comic-Con debut today at the convention center’s massive Hall H auditorium for the panel for his upcoming film, Horns, based on the Joe Hill novel. Attendees got to see the U.S. premiere of the trailer, as well as a clip from the movie (footage description here below).

Radcliffe turned 25 two days ago, so the huge crowd sang “Happy Birthday” to him. He was joined on the panel with Joe Hill and director Alexandre Aja, who Radcliffe said weaved the horror and humor elements from the book perfectly for the film.

In the movie, Radcliffe plays Ig, who is accused of raping and killing his girlfriend, Mary (played by Juno Temple). While he’s facing the hatred from his fellow townspeople, who believe he’s guilty regardless of the evidence, Ig one day wakes up with a pair of horns on his head. The horns compel anyone Ig encounters to tell the truth and act on their impulses. As the story continues, Ig struggles to find Mary’s real killer and his character begins to change as well.
