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 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 »
For whatever reason in this crazy fucked up world, I was being punished. When they looked at me, they saw a devil - and maybe I did too - and now I had to look the part.

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")
