Trivia

Heather Graham reprising her role once again as a diner waitress in a logger town where a young girl was mysteriously murdered is clearly Alexandre Aja paying homage to Twin Peaks. Only she was 20 years old the first time. See more »

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

Ig Perrish: People say you should always do the right thing, but sometimes there is no right thing, and then... well then you just have to pick the sin you can live with.

Alternate Versions

The UK cinema version reduces a rape scene and a very strong gory image to achieve a 15 rating. See more »

Weird and Mesmerizing
20 April 2015 | by claudio_carvalhoSee 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")
