Things take a dark and bizarre turn in the new UK trailer for Alexandre Aja’s HORNS.
Daniel Radcliffe stars as Ig Perrish, the man who’s accused of his girlfriend’s rape and murder. After being demonised by the local community, he wakes up one day to discover actual devil horns growing from his head. Yes, you heard right.
The trailer starts with a thriller-ish vibe, but there’s an odd shift in tone once we see Mr Radcliffe with his horns. So is this a thriller? Comedy? Supernatural? Comedy-supernatural-thriller?
HORNS is based on the novel of the same name by Joe Hill. You may have heard of his horror maestro dad, Stephen King (I bet Hill never gets tired of hearing that one).
Alexandre Aja is also no stranger to the horror genre. He’s previously directed the enjoyable HAUTE TENSION (a.k.a. SWITCHBLADE ROMANCE), MIRRORS, PIRANHA 3D, as well as the incredibly gruesome remake of Wes Craven’s THE HILLS HAVE EYES.
HORNS also stars Juno Temple, Heather Graham, James Remar and Kelli Garner. It’s released in UK and US cinemas on Halloween.
