For the most part, all of the trailers we’ve seen of Horns, the film adaptation of the Joe Hill novel, starring Daniel Radcliffe, have had a lot of humor in them. With the film set for a Halloween release, the studio wants to make sure that we also know just how dark the movie is going to be. I can’t think of a better way than covering Radcliffe in blood, can you?
“Horns,” a supernatural thriller driven by fantasy, mystery and romance, follows Ig Perrish (Radcliffe), the number one suspect for the violent rape and murder of his girlfriend, Merrin (Temple). Hungover from a night of hard drinking, Ig awakens one morning to find horns starting to grow from his own head and soon realizes their power drives people to confess their sins and give in to their most selfish and unspeakable impulses – an effective tool in his quest to discover the true circumstances of his late girlfriend’s tragedy and for exacting revenge on her killer.
