If it feels like Horns – adapted from Joe Hill's excellent horror novel – has been lingering in the underworld for a while, that's because it's been for a solid release date following it's successful run at last years festivals circuit.
Radcliffe plays Ig Perrish, the never convicted prime 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 growing from his head and soon realises that 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 to exact revenge on her killer.
Directed by Aja from Keith Bunin's adaptation of the novel, Horns is one of those films we're eager to finally see. The cast also boasts the likes of David Morse (The Hurt Locker), Max Minghella (The Social Network), Kathleen Quinlan (Apollo 13), Heather Graham (Compulsion) and James Remar (Django Unchained), with the film hitting UK cinemas on 31 October – surely the perfect day.
