A new kind of evil arrives this October and it might just one of the best rides ever! HORNS, based on a book by the same name, takes us through the life of Ig Perrish (Daniel Radcliff) as he is accused of his girlfriend’s murder and inexplicably develops paranormal abilities that allow him to act like a real devil. Now able to unleash the wicked nature inside of anyone, Perrish decides to use his newfound powers to discover his girlfriend’s killer and avenge her.
The story seems solid, especially since it’s based on the work of Joe Hill (Locke & Key). It’s one of those stories that touches on the rotten core of human nature and what roles God and the Devil may (or may not) play in our darkest desires. I, for one, am extremely pleased with Radcliff as the protagonist; it shows that he really transitioned as an actor. I have high hopes for this film, what about you?
