A Review of HORNS
From 2001-2011, Daniel Radcliffe was synonymous with the Harry Potter phenomenon. During those ten years, we watched him grow from a boy into a man—one who has since moved on to playing older characters in Rated R movies such as: The Women in Black and Horns.
The movie Horns is not your typical horror movie. In fact, it’s really a thriller with some horror undertones. And who better to write the novel that was adapted for the screen, than Joe Hill. For those who don’t know who Joe Hill is, I have two words for you…Stephen King. Joe Hill has made a name for himself as a prolific writer of horror and thriller novels.
Horns is about a boy named Ig Perrish who is charged with killing his long time girlfriend. Iggy sprouts horns from his temples, giving him the special power to get everyone around him to tell their sins, no matter how horrible it is. In his search for Marrin’s killer, Iggy learns the truth about his friends and family. He becomes the angel that fell from Heaven and becomes the Devil himself.
I can’t tell you anything else about the movie, or I’ll give away something important. Let’s just say that if you’re a fan of horror/thrillers, definitely hop on Netflix and give it a watch.
I think Daniel Radcliffe is really talented. Did you know he’s a famous rapper? Check out his performance from The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
I do love Daniel. This sounds interesting… I wasn’t sure about it. But cool!
This is a very interesting movie! Very unique plot and quite inspiring. ^_^ Daniel Radcliffe is awesome!

I LOVE Daniel, and I love that segment from the Fallon show 🙂
But I cannot stand Horns. I tried to read the book and got about 100 pages into it before I gave up. I watched the movie (it came out a year after my attempt to read HORNS) and…I just was like … cannot even with that ending. I like the concept, and I think Daniel made Ig a much more interesting and worthwhile character than he was in the book, but I am pretty surprised by how many people like the movie. I made a friend watch Horns with me, and he still hasn’t forgiven me for that experience.

Maybe it’s because I watched the movie without reading the book first?
