One of the many films to premiere at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival was director Alexandre Aja’s (The Hills Have Eyes) new film Horns. 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 awakens one morning to find horns growing from his head, which have the ability to force confessions from strangers. This aids 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 movie that mixes together a few genres–horror, comedy, love story–and results in something unique and cool. Plus, the entire cast is great.

The day after the world premiere, I sat down with Radcliffe and Temple for an extended video interview. They talked about how Horns can’t be pigeonholed into one genre, working with Aja, the way they prepare for a role, what they collect, how they’re both being offered cool projects, and more. In addition, Radcliffe talked about how excited he is to work with James McAvoy on Frankenstein later this year. Hit the jump to watch
