From director Alexandre Aja and author Joe Hill, Horns is a unique and unusual blend of fantasy, horror, drama and comedy. Blamed for the murder of his girlfriend (Juno Temple) and ostracized by everyone he knows, a small-town guy named Ig (Daniel Radcliffe) awakens one morning to find that he’s grown a pair of horns from his temples. Armed with the supernatural powers that they possess, he sets out to find the true killer and prove his innocence.
During this exclusive phone interview with Collider, novelist Joe Hill talked about the road Horns took from the page to the screen, the story’s blend of tones, his reaction the first time he saw the film put together, and how reminiscent the adolescent years of the characters are of Stand by Me and The Body. He also talked about why Locke & Key didn’t work out for TV and the hopes for it still becoming a movie, that NOS4A2 could make an interesting cable series, that he would love to have a Lego Keyhouse and Rolls Royce Wraith, and that he just finished the first draft of his next novel, The Fireman. Check out what he had to say after the jump.
