‘Horns’ Teaser Trailer: Daniel Radcliffe Has A Touch Of Satan In His Blood

The very first teaser trailer for Alexandre Aja’s adaptation of Joe Hill’s novel Horns has found its way online in advance of the film’s Halloween release.

Daniel Radcliffe has spent the last few years trying to distance himself from the magical world of Harry Potter, but he has yet to find a cinematic vehicle that grabs the nation’s attention quite like his journeys with Ron and Hermione. I doubt Horns will be the film to turn the tides, but it certainly looks like his best work in recent memory. Radcliffe stars as Ignatius, a guy whose girlfriend perishes under mysterious circumstances, leading the entire town to think Radcliffe is the person responsible. There’s also the small fact that Ignatius wakes one day after her death to discover horns sprouting from his head. Devil horns, if you will, and they come with powers that allow him to change the course of people’s lives. You can view the mysterious first teaser below:


The official synopsis reads:

In the aftermath of his girlfriend’s mysterious death, a young man awakens to strange horns sprouting from his temples.

The summary of the original novel’s plot offers slightly more insight. It reads:

Ignatius William Perrish wakes up bleary and confused after a night of drinking and “doing terrible things” to find he has grown horns. In addition to being horribly unsightly, these inflamed protuberances give Ig an equally ugly power–if he thinks hard enough, he can make people admit things (intimate, embarrassing, I-can’t-believe-you-just-said-that details). This bizarre affliction is of particular use to Ig, who is still grieving over the murder of his childhood sweetheart (a grisly act the entire town, including his family, believes he committed).

Horns will arrive in theaters on Halloween night. Comment below and let us know your thoughts on the trailer.
