Horns

Critics Consensus

Horns is a bit of a tonal jumble, but it offers enough thoughtful horror-comedy -- and strong work from Daniel Radcliffe -- to hook genre enthusiasts.

Movie Info

Based on the novel by Joe Hill, Horns is a supernatural thriller driven by fantasy, mystery and romance. The film follows Ig Perrish (Daniel Radcliffe, "Harry Potter" films), the number one suspect for the violent rape and murder of his girlfriend, Merrin (Juno Temple). Hungover from a night of hard drinking, Ig awakens one morning to find horns starting to grow from his own head and soon realizes their power drives people to confess their sins and give in to their most selfish and unspeakable impulses - an effective tool in his quest to discover the true circumstances of his late girlfriend's tragedy and for exacting revenge on her killer.

  • You never want to rip into actors. They're a sensitive bunch. They do a job that brutalises the soul at the best of times... And yet I really struggle with Daniel Radcliffe.

  • It seems to have been made by people who couldn't decide if their film was a horror flick, a whodunit, or a Hellboy knockoff.

  • Alexandre Aja's sprawling, wildly uneven film suffers from its continual shifts in storytelling style. It's at its best as a Twin Peaks-style mystery with supernatural elements.

    Oct 31, 2014 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Radcliffe, through his sheer presence and the piercing honesty of those big, blue eyes, makes this mixed-up material watchable.

    Oct 31, 2014 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Horns juggles a lot of balls, and admirably keeps them in the air for longer than you might expect. But it doesn't know how to bring them down gently.

    Oct 31, 2014 | Full Review…
  • We get slithering snakes, rock music, woozy camera angles. And zero sense of danger. Without that ingredient, Horns feels like Harry Potter meets Ken Russell.

    One of the weirdest movies I've ever seen, but still pretty interesting. I hear that the book is much better, so I'm looking to check that out at some point. I liked this film, but I know a lot of people who didn't, so use your own judgment.

    An insufferably disjointed and overlong film that has serious trouble defining the rules of its universe and suffers from a messy structure, expository narration, intrusive flashbacks, predictable revelations (when not ridiculously sentimental) and a heap of clichés.
    Carlos M Super Reviewer

    A whole new level of stupid.
