Horns is one of the movies to come out the later half of this year that im really excited about- as it’s an adaptation of the amazing book from Joe Hill that stars Daniel Radcliffe as Ig Perrish who wakes up one morning after a drunken night (in the woods containing an old foundry, near where his girlfriend’s corpse was discovered) to find that he has sprouted bony, sensitive horns from his temples that alow him to influence the thoughts of others.
Horns got its first mini trailer just before Comic-Con this week, and that was a decent little trailer that highlighted everything it needed too for fans of the book, but today theres a bigger and better one here. Continue reading

It’s the beginning of the week, and that means that its time for me to put out into the world another recommendation for everyone to ponder. This week I’m straying away from the comic book genre and entering the world of literature, to recommend one of my favourite books of all time- by an author who is quickly becoming one of my must read authors. This week I’m whole heartedly recommending that you go out and read ‘Horns’ by Joe Hill if you haven’t already. Continue reading
Its been announced that RADiUS- TWC and Dimension films have acquired the rights to distribute the movie in the U.S. This is great news, for one of the films I have most been looking forward to since its announcement.
Joe Hill’s Horns is a supernatural Thriller, based on his book of the same name, and follows the tale of Ignatius Perrish who spent the night drunk and doing terrible things. He woke up the next morning with one hell of a hangover, a raging headache . . . and a pair of horns growing from his temples.
The official synopsis is as follows:
Once, Ig lived the life of the blessed: born into privilege, the second son of a renowned American musician, and the younger brother of a rising late-night TV star, Ig had security and wealth and a place in his community. Ig had it all, and more – he had the love of Merrin Williams, a love founded on shared daydreams, mutual daring, and unlikely midsummer magic.
Then beautiful, vivacious Merrin was gone – raped and murdered, under inexplicable circumstances – with Ig the only suspect. He was never tried for the crime, but in the court of public opinion, Ig was and always would be guilty.
Now Ig is possessed with a terrible new power – with just a touch he can see peoples’ darkest desires – to go with his terrible new look, and he means to use it to find the man who killed Merrin and destroyed his life. Being good and praying for the best got him nowhere. It’s time for a little revenge; it’s time the devil had his due
The film stars Daniel Radcliffe as Ig, and also features Juno Temple, Max Minghella, Joe Anderson, Kelli Garner and Heather Graham.
Its set to get a 2014 release, and you couldn’t find me more excited by this news. If the movie is anywhere near as good as the book, this could be the sleeper hit of the year.
