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 tattoo seen on Ig's arm reads "awake arise or be forever fall'n," which is a direct quote from John Milton's "Paradise Lost" in which Satan falls from Heaven. 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 give this movie a 10/10 for many reasons and here is three to keep it simple:
The first is the impeccable acting. This entire movie was cast perfectly, and Daniel Radcliffe broke the Harry Potter typecast and gave us a phenomenal performance in Horns. I definitely felt the chemistry between Radcliffe and Temple, both of them were outstanding and sexy.
The second is the book-to-screen adaption. Aside from leaving a few key points of Lee's back story out, the film kept the originality and humor that Joe Hill's novel blessed us with. I don't ever go into a book-to-film adaption expecting everything to math perfectly, and this movie did everything right!
The third is the cinematography. Such a beautiful and artful film, everything about the way this movie looks is delivered perfectly.
If you have not watched this movie or at least read the novel, please take the time to do so. It is such an original story and well worth it! It's disturbing, funny, sad, satisfying and so much more!
