Trivia

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 »

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 »

Quotes

[first lines]
Ig Perrish: [narrating] Everyone in town always took me for an outsider. I didn't care. The only thing that mattered was her. She was my garden of Eden. And God knows how beautiful it was until that night. You know, no one is born evil. The devil himself was a fallen angel. But sometimes when you go through hell, the only way out is to walk deeper into the fire.

Grab This One by the Horns.
6 May 2015 | by TheReviewMasterSee all my reviews

Daniel Radcliffe has come a long way since his stint as a wizard, and "Horns" is a great vehicle for him to continue to grow as an actor and expand his presence to those in the audience who gave the little Potter-head a miss.

Joe Hill, son of Stephen King, has crafted a tale here I can honestly say as far as I know, has never been done, and that's always a good start. The concept is fun, full of surprises, and never dulls.

The problem I am finding with great premises is that it's very hard to fully utilise them, to drain them for everything they are worth, and that is where Horns loses ratings; it could have pushed the boundaries in the fun department just a little bit more, but then, in hindsight, doing that risks spoiling some of the darker elements littered throughout the narrative.

It is a violent film at times, but if you can grow some horns and stomach a few graphic scenes, then you may enjoy it.
