Working from a deeply original aperture, you couldn’t ask for a better calling card with the iconoclastic look into the species. Diane Bell’s debut film was a double winner at Sundance (Alfred P. Sloan Prize and Excellence in Cinematography Award Dramatic) the year that Winter’s Bone won the Grand Jury Prize. While Obselidia garnered fanfare back in 2010, her sophomore film will likely receive more curious onlookers due to the titular pairing of Jessica Biel and Zosia Mamet who’ll be technically breaking out in film with this item. Re-teaming with dp Zak Mulligan, lensing began back in October of 2013 on Shiva and May and since it bypassed all film fests in 2014, there is no doubt that this Girls friendly item will have been among the most earliest submissions sent to the Park City folks.

When Merrin (Juno Temple) dies, Ignatius is the prime suspect, though he had no part in her gruesome murder. Despite his best efforts to convince the authorities and the public of his innocence, nothing sways their belief in his guilt. Making matters worse for Ignatius are the conspicuous horns that sprout from the top of his head. Alexandre Aja directed the film, which also stars Max Minghella, Joe Anderson, Kellie Garner, James Reman and Kathleen Quinlan.

Title: Horns Director: Alexandre Aja Starring: Daniel Radcliffe, Juno Temple, Max Minghella, Joe Anderson, Kathleen Quinlan and James Remar People are often judged by their actions and the decisions they regularly make, and can find it difficult to change people’s perceptions of them. They can also be wrongfully misjudged when society has ostracized them for an act they truly didn’t commit. But filmmaker Alexandre Aja and actor Daniel Radcliffe are enchantingly exposing modern society’s contradictions about normalcy and ideas about good versus evil in their new supernatural thriller, ‘Horns.’ The horror film, which is based on Joe Hill’s 2010 novel of the same name, smartly mixes biblical subtext with dark [ Read More ]

Horns, out Friday, stars Daniel Radcliffe as Ig Perrish, who is accused of murdering his girlfriend and soon sprouts horns on his forehead and harnesses a new ability to evoke the unspeakable truths out of those he encounters — a power he tries to use to solve the crime. The Alexandre Aja adaptation of Joe Hill's 2010 "tragi-come-horror-dy" novel also features Juno Temple, Max Minghella, Joe Anderson, Kelli Garner, Heather Graham, David Morse, Kathleen Quinlan and James Remar.

Just in time for Halloween, Daniel Radcliffe gets some special powers and couple of appendages growing from his temples in Radius’ Horns, which will be this week’s biggest rollout among specialty newcomers. The title received a warm welcome at a Cinema Society event attended by its stars this week in New York. This week’s newbies are dominated by nonfiction fare, though with some exceptions. Kino Lorber is opening French/Swiss maestro Jean-Luc Godard’s Goodbye To Language following a successful festival run.

This year, the cinematic landscape is suffering from a staggering lack of scary movie product. Instead of the usual "Paranormal Activity" installment, we've got a limp haunted board-game movie in "Ouija" and a tenth anniversary re-release of the first "Saw" movie (a film that inspired countless sequels, another staple of Halloween that has evaporated by thinly mixed fake blood). But fear not! There is one late-entry scary movie, opening on Halloween day no less -- French filmmaker Alexandre Aja's "Horns."
Based on a novel by Joe Hill (whose daddy, it should be noted, is Stephen King), "Horns" stars Daniel Radcliffe as a man who, after a night of hard drinking, wakes up to find a pair of devilish knobs poking out from his forehead. What's more -- those horns cause people around him to confess their deepest fears, something which should be especially helpful since he is trying desperately »

• Demian Bichir is in negotiations to take the lead in the untitled Low Riders film for Universal, Blumhouse Productions, and Imagine Entertainment. Ricardo de Montreuil is attached to direct the film. Cheo Hodari Coker and Elgin James wrote earlier drafts of the script; Josh Bierne-Gordon and Justin Tipping wrote the current draft. Set in the East Los Angeles world of lowrider cars and street tagging, the story follows a teenager caught in the middle of his traditional father, whom Bichir would play, and his estranged gangbanger brother, both of whom are competing in the annual lowrider “Supershow.” Imagine Entertainment’s »

Daniel Radcliffe could not be doing more to dispel his Harry Potter image that so many movie fans still hold onto. From ages 12 to 22 Radcliffe personified the beloved children’s book character, but he’s moving on. He’s played beat icon Allen Ginsberg, he’s played a cynical romanticist, and he’s played a terrorized attorney. Based on the novel by Joe Hill, Horns, is truly the cherry on top of the typecast-busting sundae because no one will be thinking about Potter when they see this.
Radcliffe plays Ig Perrish, a local DJ who has been with the love of his life Merrin (Juno Temple) since they met in elementary school. The couple has a screaming match after she dumps him publicly. When she appears, raped and dismembered under the tree that both she and Ig loved it is »

Story centers on a real estate reporter (Lowndes) who unearths an urban legend about a house being built from rooms where horrific tragedies have occurred. The investigation ultimately leads to the enigmatic Jebediah Crone and the answer to the terrifying question, “How do you build a haunted house?”
“I have been working to get ‘Abattoir’ made for the last 4 years,” Bousman said. “At times, it feels like it has been a non-stop push to see this thing into production. But reading the script, and looking at our cast, it has all been worth it. I couldn’t be more excited about the team I am surrounded with.”
Jesse Berger is producing. Production is currently underway in New Orleans. »

Editor’s note: Friend of Icons of Fright, author Derek Botelho tackled this review of Alexandre Aja’s film adaption of the Joe Hill novel, Horns for us. Short but to the point, here is Derek’s review:
Upon reading Joe Hill’s novel Horns I recall thinking how difficult it would be to adapt into a movie. Like his father, Stephen King, it seems everything Hill writes is optioned to be turned into a film, whether it materializes is another story. Alexandre Aja’s Horns is the first of Hill’s novels to be made into a movie (a few of his stories have been made into short films) and thankfully it’s a good one!
Ig Perrish (Daniel Radcliffe) is a twenty something employee at a radio station who has been accused of murdering his girlfriend. To make matters worse, he wakes up one morning growing horns out of his head. »

Horns Radius/TWC Reviewed for Shockya by Harvey Karten. Data-based on Rotten Tomatoes Grade: B+ Director: Alexandre Aja Screenplay: Keith Bunin, based on Joe Hill’s novel Cast: Daniel Radcliffe, Juno Temple, Max Minghella, Joe Anderson, Kelli Garner, Heather Graham, David Morse, Kathleen Quinlan, James Remar Screened at: Review 1, NYC, 9/9/14 Opens: October 31, 2014 “Horns,” or, “The Devil in Daniel Radcliffe” is targeted toward the same audience that made blockbusters of the “Twilight” series. At least that’s what two critics have said. I’m not in that group and would have to disagree, in that older adults should be just as involved in the goings-on in what starts as a romance [ Read More ]

Now, I’ll begin this by saying that I am a big fan of Joe Hill. He’s a writer with a style that I admire, and his stories are so comically dark and psychotic that I can’t help but get caught up in their effortless cool. When I heard that Horns, Hill’s second novel (after the excellent Heart Shaped Box), was being adapted to screen, with Daniel (Harry Potter) Radcliffe playing the lead role of Ig, I was a little, shall we say, unsure of how to react. I like Radcliffe, but wasn’t sure he fit the image that my own mind had created for the main character in the Hill dark-fantasy-horror novel. Still, I was excited, and when I saw the trailer a few months ago, »

In the grand tradition of scaring the crap out of yourself every autumn, Horns is coming out on Halloween, and I can’t think of a better way to give yourself nightmares that day. Supernatural thrillers aren’t usually my thing, but I find myself intrigued/repulsed by the trailers for this movie. It looks really interesting and inventive in addition to the whole completely terrifying aspect. In case this picture didn't sell you on why seeing this movie is a good/bad idea, check out these two new UK TV spots for the film.
Based on the novel by Joe Hill, Horns is a supernatural thriller driven by fantasy, mystery and romance. The film follows Ig Perrish, the number one suspect for the violent rape and murder of his girlfriend, Merrin. Hungover from a night of hard drinking, Ig awakens one morning to find horns starting to grow from »

“Horns” is the story of Ig Perrish (Daniel Radcliffe), a young man whose girlfriend Merrin (Juno Temple) turns up dead mere hours after she dumps him, and Ig is the prime suspect. Shunned by virtually everyone in town, including most of the people he grew up with, Ig searches in vain for the killer, but the search isn’t going well. His wealthy parents (James Remar and Kathleen Quinlan) want him to use one of their big-dollar lawyers to cop a plea. The local cops and Merrin’s father Dale (David Morse) would love to see Ig suffer a tragic accident. And the only people who seem to believe his innocence are his best friend and lawyer Lee (Max Minghella), his wayward brother Terry (Joe Anderson), and Glenna (Kelli Garner), a bar-girl who’s had a thing for Ig sin [Continued ...] »
