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 character Ig's full name, Ignatius, is only mentioned once throughout the film. In Latin, it translates to "fiery one" and has the same root as the word "ignite". See more »
The film is set in Washington state (witness the car license plates), but when Ig drives into town near the start of the movie, we can see a branch of the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce on the right side of the street. See more »
I loved 'Horns', It isn't yet another recycled movie to keep you entertained while you eat your popcorn, what it is is completely different from anything you've seen before. The film has no specific genre, it's a jumble of ideas. And I like that.
The acting is fantastic all round, At the start it was strange hearing Daniel Radcliffe speaking in an American accent but he does it brilliantly and his performance all the way through is just brilliant. There isn't a single character in the film who isn't 100% believable and vital to the story.
Visually, the film is also terrific. I could watch the whole thing on mute and still enjoy it hugely.
As many people have said before this definitely is not a film for everyone. It's a 'Love it' or 'Hate it' film and I can understand why many people are gathering at the 'Hate it' end of the spectrum, although, in my opinion, those people are wrong. I'd love it if more filmmakers took risks like this instead of playing it safe by recycling previous tired-out ideas.
I strongly recommend you give this film a go.
