Daniel Radcliffe in HORNS.

Directed by: Alexandre Aja

Written by: Keith Bunin

Cast: Daniel Radcliffe, Max Minghella, Joe Anderson, Juno Temple, Kelli Garner, James Remar, Kathleen Quinlan, Heather Graham, David Morse

Rating: R

Running Time: 120 minutes

Ig Perrish (Daniel Radcliffe) becomes evil incarnate and grows horns (hence the title), and uses his new found power to find the killer of his recently deceased girlfriend (Juno Temple). The story itself is interesting and at times clever, but the tonal switch from drama to dark comedy to horror is a big problem—and the film’s eventual undoing. Overall, the performances by Radcliffe and supporting cast are very good. The production design and its special effects for an indie film are quite exceptional.

Grade: C+
