After Iggy's long-time girlfriend is murdered and the whole town agrees he is the killer, he awakens one morning with horns and the townspeople soon confess their sins. Once knowing the sins of the people, he is facing the true killer of his beloved girlfriend.
The diner sign board "Eve's est. 1947" is a play to the 1947 film Christmas Eve by director Edward L. Marin which name closely resembled Ig's girlfriend name Merrin. Both films have the same release date, October 31st. See more »
When Ig tells his brother Terry to swallow all his pills, Terry puts a few in his mouth and uses the little bit of liquid in his glass to swallow them. There shouldn't be any liquid left after that. In the next scene with Terry, the glass is full as he swallows more pills. See more »
Daniel Radcliffe has come a long way since his stint as a wizard, and "Horns" is a great vehicle for him to continue to grow as an actor and expand his presence to those in the audience who gave the little Potter-head a miss.
Joe Hill, son of Stephen King, has crafted a tale here I can honestly say as far as I know, has never been done, and that's always a good start. The concept is fun, full of surprises, and never dulls.
The problem I am finding with great premises is that it's very hard to fully utilise them, to drain them for everything they are worth, and that is where Horns loses ratings; it could have pushed the boundaries in the fun department just a little bit more, but then, in hindsight, doing that risks spoiling some of the darker elements littered throughout the narrative.
It is a violent film at times, but if you can grow some horns and stomach a few graphic scenes, then you may enjoy it.
