Much like the book it was based on it starts off strong and kind meanders in the middle and comes to an abrupt end. I like Radcliffe taking on a more adult role and breaking out of his comfort zone and Juno Temple is always a welcome addition. It has pacing issues, but overall is a decent adaptation - it's hard to say if this is truly horror or more dark fantasy, but I enjoyed it and one the better side of Alexandre Aja's recent films for sure.

We always say we want people to be honest with us, this movie shows what that would feel like. The effects are great, the story kept me enthralled from start to finish. This isn't so much a horror movie as it is a love story with elements of horror. Based on the book by Joe Hill (Stephen King's son), I really saw the similarities in other of King's stories, i.e. flashbacks to memories of childhood and a gang of misfit kids. My only complaint was bland acting in a few scenes, but overall the acting wasn't bad. I really enjoyed this movie and will recommend it to friends.

“How about you guys beat the shit out of each other and the winner gets an exclusive interview with me?”
I must admit that I admire Daniel Radcliffe at this moment. He does his utmost best to shake off the mark of "Harry Potter". After years waving around with a magic wand as an apprentice, he aimed his attention to very different projects, soundly deviating from what we are used of him. "The woman in black" was a box-office hit but still had the same atmosphere as his previous work : dark, macabre and it took place in a scary, old mansion (A kind of tiny Hogwarts). "Kill your Darlings" is a totally different category. A philosophical tinted film about revolutionary poets and writers and where Radcliffe probably had to browse intensely through some manuals about homosexuality. …

'Horns' is a pleasant surprise. The sheer quality in filmmaking, moderate big studio budget, and broad appeal has me wondering why this film did not receive a wide release. It totally deserves the viewership. I don't think I've ever seen a film that has so many genres coinciding perfectly. The story is easy to fall right into and the characters even easier to absorb. The narrative weaves together a crime-mystery plot with strong elements of horror, spiritual, drama, comedy, and tragic romance. I ran through the gambit of all emotions and I was invested in the relationships, as well as solving the initial case. There's a touching aspect to the romance that is the beating heart of the whole film. It becomes more present over time, making for a satifying conclusion. I only have two …

Daniel Radcliffe with devil horns in a movie directed by Alexandre Aja, this should good... or not.
The story is about Daniel Radcliffe character when one day, he inexplicably finds a set of horns has grown out of his head - and it gives him a new power - a power to finally find the person responsible for the devastation in his life.
This movie started off pretty damn good with are main character which you hate at the start, but as the film went on he became a bit likable. Daniel Radcliffe in the film was really good in this movie and I want to see him in more movies. I liked that light dark tone the movie started off with, until the last third of this movie kind of fell a part for me. The movie lost it senses of fun and lost it's dark humor with the last part of the movie being …
