    Horns (Acorn) Based on the excellent novel by Joe Hill, this modest translation to film more than likely sailed unnoticed through local theatres and went to disc, even though its star is Daniel Radcliffe. While true to the spirit and intent of the novel, the film does produce a nice blend of anticipation and puzzle, dealing as it does with a protagonist who wakes up, after passing out from a night of a guilt binge-drinking, to discover that he now has a pair of horns on his head: horns which impel anyone seeing them to tell the complete truth. Accused of his fiancee’s murder, Our Guy tries to uncover the truth in the small town on the Pacific Coast. Well Done.

    I bought this movie right when it came out because the trailers made it look really good. Well the trailers didn't lie, this movie had my attention the whole way through. The plot involves a "who done it" murder mystery with the main character's deceased girlfriend. The main character ends up getting horns which causes the people around him to confess their darkest secrets and desires, so he plains on using his horns to find the real killer. The actors in this movie do a really fantastic job in bringing their characters to life. The weakest performance I felt was Heather Graham, which I hate saying because I like the actress, only because it felt like she didn't put a lot into her role, but she only a minor character so it isn't a big deal. The big reveal followed by the cliffhanger was a real tear jerker.

    HORNS is a modern horror gem!

    HORNS, written by Joe Hiil, is a very original horror story that delves into the nature of sin. Specifically it deals with the old Christian tenet "your sin will find you out" and the consequences of sin revealed. In this regard, the film is very intelligent, moral, and avoids the modern body count type of horror film. Still, using this as a premise, the film by no means is a Bible thumper's delight. HORNS is beautifully paced, photographed and featured awesome special FX. To my regret, I have not up to this point followed the Harry Potter fiims, but I've enjoyed Daniel Radcliffe in all of his post-Potter roles. He is engaging. Certainly an actor to keep your eye on. The presentation of this Blu-Ray disc is excellent!

    I wasn't sure what to expect going in to Horns and I didn't spend a lot of time reading up on it beforehand. Maybe that helped or didn't, but I felt Horns was hilarious. I enjoyed most of the movie and it felt refreshing and unique. Daniel Radcliff's girlfriend is murdered and he is blamed for it. Somehow he starts growing horns and with them he gets powers to influence people which he uses to figure out who really murdered his girlfriend. Horns has a lot of black dark humor and whether it actually follows the plot of the book or not, Radcliff's powers bring out a ton of hilarious moments.

    A Great Movie

    This really was a great film and totally surpassed my expectations. This was purchased as a blind buy and I was hesitant to watch the film as I did not want to wind up with buyer's remourse. This actually tured out to be a great little movie and really does not follow along with any of that "Twilight" type stuff going around right now. It's a love story, a tale of murder, and a mystery; in addition to containing fantasy and elements of humor. It's a great genre mix.

    I had forgotten that Daniel Radcliffe had done this movie, and after quite some time noticed it was in the holiday bin, so being a newly found interest, I purchased for my husband as a Christmas gift. This movie has its funny moments, but it also takes a dark twist. This movie not reccommended for anyone under 18. Overall a worthy purchase, and would reccomend for a night of reality crushing nonsense.

    I was very unsure about this movie before I purchased it, but the reviews were so good I was a bit baffled. I picked the movie up 4 times and put it back down before I decided to take a chance, I basically took the chance because in addition to the reviews the price was right. I'm so glad I did. It was quirky, but had a different twist and I never knew what was going to happen next. The acting was good and it was done well.

    A very interesting adaptation of the Joe Hill novel, streamlining parts of the book to fit the movie. The film still touches on a lot of the big points from the original text but has enough differences to make it interesting, even if you already know the story. Danial Radcliffe does a great job and the Blu-Ray looks terrific. Recommended for those looking for a mix of whodunnit, horror and dark humor.
