A whodunit with elements of comedy and supernatural horror that becomes more and more disjointed as it progresses.
19 October 2014 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Iggy Perrish is blamed by an entire small American town for the murder of his girlfriend. The evidence against him is insufficient, but even his own parents seem pretty sure he did it. On top of this unpleasant development, the hapless young man sprouts a pair of wicked-looking horns. But it's not that simple, haha. Ig can plainly see and feel that he has the horns, but most other people seem unaware of them. The weirdness is exacerbated further by the fact that those other people start acting all... evil around him.

Genre-wise, Horns starts out as a criminal drama, promptly tossing in supernatural horror and comedy to spice things up. The comedy gradually drains out of it, however, whereupon the movie becomes a straight-up shoddy supernatural thriller.

Horns is pretty well-made technically, with good-looking locations, decent camera work, and OK special FX. Daniel Radcliffe does some fairly great acting... the rest of the cast is barely passable, though. As for the overall story - it evolves from intriguing to mediocre to moronic.

Elements of different genres and Radcliffe's acting are the best things about Horns, and manage to keep it entertaining for a little while.

However, soon the vast weakness of the script takes its toll. The movie is very inconsistent, venturing into absurd by the end. It throws in random elements without making much of an effort to make them comfortably fit. The protagonist's predicament, his character, and his decisions and actions become extremely erratic. The movie's internal logic isn't very solid to begin with, and when it starts to come apart, the movie gets increasingly hard to watch, undermining enjoyment as it progresses. By the end, Horns is almost painfully bad.

I wanted to like Horns, but it's not a good movie, so I'd recommend that you pass. Horns has nothing on the other horror flick with Daniel Radcliffe - Woman In Black. Better watch that one, if you haven't already.

3/10.
