The first clip is up from Alexandre Aja’s Horns, starring Daniel Radcliffe. The film is definitely looking like one of the more interesting murder mysteries in the last few years. Radcliffe, having been accused of raping and murdering his girlfriend, wakes up one day to find horns growing from his head. What’s more, is the horns have the power to make people confess their wrongdoings. Radcliffe’s character, Ig Perrish, uses this to find the real murderer and take his revenge.
Based on the novel of the same name by Joe Hill, the pic centers on Ig Perrish (Daniel Radcliffe), the main suspect in the rape and murder of his girlfriend. He wakes one morning to find horns growing from his head, appendages that have the ability to force confessions from strangers, which aid him in his quest to find the real killer and exact his revenge. Horns also stars Juno Temple, Max Minghella, James Remar, Joe Anderson and Kelli Garner. I caught the world premiere here at TIFF and am happy to report the film is really well done. Aja has managed to craft a film that mixes together a few genres (horror, comedy, love story) and results in something unique and cool, and the entire cast was great.
