HORNS Trailer and Poster: Is Daniel Radcliffe the Devil?

     July 14, 2014


The first Horns trailer and poster have arrived for director Alexandre Aja’s (The Hills Have Eyes) adaptation of the Joe Hill novel.  The film stars Daniel Radcliffe as Ig Perrish, the main suspect in the rape and murder of his girlfriend (Juno Temple).  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.  RADiUS-TWC is bringing the pic to Comic-Con next week, and it’s not hard to see why.  There’s an obvious genre bent here, but I’m really curious to see how Radcliffe fills the lead role.  We don’t see much of his performance in this teaser trailer, but hopefully we’ll find out more during the film’s Hall H panel next Friday.

Hit the jump to check out the first Horns trailer and poster, and be sure to check out Steve’s video interviews with Radcliffe & Temple and Aja from TIFF.  The film also stars Max Minghella, James Remar, Joe Anderson, and Kelli GarnerHorns opens in theaters and on VOD this Halloween.

Here’s the official synopsis for Horns:

Blamed for the death of his longtime girlfriend (Temple), a small-town guy (Radcliffe) awakens one morning to find a pair of horns growing from his head in this supernatural thriller from horror ace Alexandre Aja (HAUTE TENSION, PIRANHA 3D).

    I’ve been wondering what the status of the film was as the premise sounded interesting. And then it sort of fell off the face of the earth and I was concerned that maybe it wasn’t either a good film and the studio pushed it to VOD but apparently that’s not the case. Great! I love the director and think he’s great when he’s working w the right people – Hills Have Eyes was a pretty decent horror film.

    I’m really beginning to enjoy Radcliffe, but that American accent needs to stop. Is it so hard to believe a British guy is living in the States?

    • GrimReaper07

      I think its based off a comic book or something. He was probably ok with doing it since demonstrating you can do an American accent is a good career move.

      • Cody McGowan

        I’m not familiar with the source material, but I understand your point. It’s just annoying (as I’m sure fake British accents are to real Brits, Angelina Jolie). His in particular hits the ear wrong, like Jude Law in I <3 Huckabees.

      • Cody McGowan

        And yes, that’s pronounced “I Scrotum Huckabees.”

        His American accent sounds a little off in this teaser but there was a short clip from this movie where his accent sounds pretty good.

      • Eve

        Yeah, I saw that clip and thought he sounded fine.

      • GrimReaper07

        Not being american myself I can’t really tell the difference. It sounds weird as in “it’s Harry Potter with an american accent” but outside that I wouldn’t be able to say if its good or bad. I agree he’s starting to become a great actor.

        based off a book and the character is an American. Not that it matters. Great book too.

        I wonder if the director will do to Joe Hill what so many have done in the past to his dad……which is screw him over.

      • randommale7

        Joe Hill saw the movie last year and said that he loved it, it actually screened at TIFF as well.

    It’s based on the book by Joe Hill who is Stephen King’s son.

      I haven’t read anything by him, but I have read reviews that say his books are pretty good.

    The movie looks very good, but I think I might read the book first. It has great reviews.
