First Teaser: Alex Aja and Daniel Radcliffe Adapt Joe Hill’s “HORNS”
There’s a lot to be excited about when it comes to HORNS. Joe Hill’s novel is a terrific work of fantasy/horror/crime. Daniel Radcliffe has established himself as a fine young actor with a taste for the macabre. And finally, the film feels poised to be something of a return for Alexandre Aja (HIGH TENSION, THE HILLS HAVE EYES). Following its premiere at last summer’s Toronto International Film Festival, Radius-TWC will finally distribute the film this fall and the first teasers are here.
HORNS concerns a young man named Ig Perrish (Radcliffe), who in the aftermath of his girlfriend’s (Juno Temple) murder, awakens to find he’s sprouted horns on his head. The novel is a twisty, violent, darkly funny and dreamy tale, and while largely out of context, this teaser sports a nice look and an indication Aja may have been able to wrangle it all.
This first poster and trailer are in anticipation of HORNS’ UK drop this October. No official word yet on when Radius-TWC plans to release in the U.S., but the film will have a panel at San Diego Comic-Con in just over a week and it doesn’t seem far fetched to imagine an announcement and closer peek there.
