Director discusses the making of his latest film
Fans of Daniel Radcliffe from his days playing Harry Potter may be surprised to see him go “full Slytherin” for Alexandre (The Hills Have Eyes) Aja’s Horns, based on the Joe Hill novel.
That’s pretty much what he does while playing Ig, a young man accused of murdering his girlfriend Merrin (Juno Temple) who starts growing horns and affecting those around him to reveal their darkest secrets. As the horns grow, Ig is able to use his newfound powers (and the numerous large snakes that follow him around) to try to learn the truth about what happened to Merrin.
Earlier this week, ShockTillYouDrop.com had a chance to talk with Radcliffe about his second foray into horror following 2012’s The Woman in Black, as well as getting some idea what to expect from his turn as Igor in next October’s Victor Frankenstein.
Further proving how sporadic and unpredictable (for the fans, at least) the distribution game has gotten, Alexandre Aja’s Horns made its debut exclusively on iTunes in advance of it’s October 31st wide(-ish) release. You can get it here.
Kalyn Corrigan weighed in on the film for Shock, check out her review.
Based on the novel by Joe Hill, Horns is a supernatural thriller driven by fantasy, mystery and romance.
Alexandre Aja and Joe Hill sat down with Shock Till You Drop at Comic-Con last weekend to talk Horns. Based on Hill’s novel, the movie opens in theaters October 31st and I’ll tell you now, if you’re a fan of the source material, you will likely enjoy this weird, heartfelt film.
The film follows Ig Perrish (Daniel Radcliffe), the number one suspect for the violent rape and murder of his girlfriend, Merrin (Juno Temple). Hungover from a night of hard drinking, Ig awakens one morning to find horns starting to grow from his own head and soon realizes their power drives people to confess their sins and give in to their most selfish and unspeakable impulses
ShockTillYouDrop.com is excited to bring you the exclusive first look at the U.S. teaser poster for Horns. Further, we can officially tell you the film will arrive here in the States on Friday, October 31st (previous rumors pointed to a fall debut). International materials – like a UK one-sheet and teaser trailer – hit earlier this week and can be seen here. So far, the I think the U.S. key art nailed it.
Horns is based on the novel by Joe Hill and follows Ig Perrish (Daniel Radcliffe), a young man who awakens one morning to discover horns have sprouted from his head.
