Horns-Daniel Radcliffe

Speaking to Indie Wire in Toronto, Daniel Radcliffe described the story as having “real horror and slasher horror elements but then has this incredible emotional love story in the middle of it.”

Ig Perrish (Radcliffe) is the number one suspect for the carnal assault 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 realises 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…

” … a Dogma-style mash-up of grim comedy and religious satire”. The Guardian

“Predominantly a failure of tone, “Horns” has plenty of admirable traits and yet dooms itself from the outset. It’s an admirable conceit stuffed into far less subtle material”. Eric Kohn, IndieWire

“While this all begins as a kind of supernatural black comedy … the tone grows darker with each revelation”. John DeFore, The Hollywood Reporter

” … benefits from the helmer’s twisted sensibility, but suffers from a case of overall silliness”. Peter Debruge, Variety
