Horns First Look

From EW

Entertainment Weekly posted three exclusive pictures of Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter Saga) in Alexandre Aja’s Horns. Check out the pictures and the plot below. The film premiered at the Toronto Film Festival over the weekend. It based on the novel by Joe Hill. 

The Plot: Daniel Radcliffe plays Ig, a small-time guy who’s suspected of brutally murdering his longtime girlfriend (Juno Temple). The town seems to have made up its mind about his guilt, especially when he begins to sprout devilish horns while the police investigate the crime. Before long, though, Ig notices that his frightful horns seem to have one beneficial side-effect: people around him suddenly seem compelled to tell him the truth, the horrible truth that they’ve never told anyone else. Just maybe, those horns of his will help him find out who really committed the murder.

Horns features Daniel Radcliffe, Juno Temple, Heather Graham, James Remar and is directed by Alexandre Aja (The Hills Have Eyes, Piranha 3D).

Horns has no official release date.

I loved the book...just not sure if Aja can do it justice.  Looking forward to the trailer

 Sounds like this could be pretty fun.  I wouldn't mind sprouting those horns, for a little while at least.  It would be extremely interesting to hear the truth from everyone.  I think the fabric of human society would crumble if no one could lie, but it would be cool to catch a glimps of just how bad it really is.

This is definitely an original idea for the movies. It's the kind of idea you can't afford to do for a big budget blockbuster. I'm not sure I will go to the theater to see it but I would like to check it out at some point.

You read vociferously? You must be as annoying  a reader as you are a poster here then.

Aja also directed the excellent High Tension.

There's a clip already online and Frosty said the film was well done and unique. Not sure I'll see it at the theater though

Wiseguy...you got me...meant to write  voraciously instead of vociferously.  I need an editor... especially on the stuff I post after midnight.

 fatpantz...You read the book? Good for you. I admire book readers. I used to devour books but now I've grown lazy. I blame the internet and ever diminishing eyeight (I admit those are poor excuses). I still read vorasciously but mostly internet articles that encompass a single screen capture and are written on a third grade level. That's why I applaud guys like Chuck Francsico who can make me open another tab on my browser to look up a word.

I heard Horns was an excellent book that works on several levels (written by Stephen King's son...Joe Hill). I doubt that the movie can match the book... because...well, they never do...how can some screen writer / director match the images we conjure up in our minds?

I'm not putting down the movie...which I certainly will check out at some point.

I read voluptuously.
