Sadly the film's mélange of ingredients never quite come together, and whilst Aja constantly attempts to root Hill's novel in the present, Keith Bunin's screenplay is too anomalous to hold our attention.
Horns simply feels like a misfire that could have been an awesome mash-up of black comedy, sleuthing, and fantastical romantic drama, all with provocative commentary on religion and the never-ending discussion of good vs evil
At nearly two hours, "Horns" is about 30 minutes longer than it needs to be. But it's doubtful even a shorter version would cure what ails this film. Maybe you have to be tripped out on LSD to appreciate it.
Daniel Radcliffe gives an absolutely incredible performance that Horns doesn't really seem to fully appreciate. But the ludicrous ending derails the film from what was otherwise a gripping mystery thriller.
