Trivia

When Ig's brother, Terry, is driving Merrin home from the diner, his license plate is seen as "GEN 138," (Genesis, 13:8), which reads, "And Abram said unto Lot, Let there be no strife, I pray thee, between me and thee, and between my herdmen and thy herdmen; for we be brothers." See more »

Goofs

The character Lee had two fingers on his right hand blown off by a cherry bomb in a childhood accident, as shown in the film. In the scene where Ig confronts Lee and finds that he is wearing Merrin's necklace, it can be seen that Lee is not missing any fingers on either hand. See more »

Weird and Mesmerizing
20 April 2015 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In a small town, Ig Perrish (Daniel Radcliffe) is accused by the inhabitants of killing his sweetheart Merrin Williams (Juno Temple). Even his parents believe that he is guilty and only his childhood friend and lawyer Lee Tourneau (Max Minghella) believes Ig is telling the truth. Out of blue, Ig sees horns sprouting on his forehead, but soon he finds that the horns are a blessing since people confess their sins and inner dark desires to him. Ig uses the horns to discover who the killer of his beloved girlfriend is.

"Horns" is a weird and mesmerizing movie that entwines several genres. The plot is unique and anything can happen in this original story. The conclusion could be better but does not totally disappoint. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Amaldiçoado" ("Cursed")
