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 Garner. Horns 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).
