The new film from director Alexandre Aja just premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival to favorable reviews, and now, those of us not lucky enough to be in the Great White North for the fest are getting our first look at “Horns.”
The first clip just debuted over at Collider, and it introduces us to the bizarre world that was dreamt up by author Joe Hill.
In “Horns,” Radcliffe plays Ig Perrish, a man whose girlfriend dies under mysterious circumstances, and the morning after her death, he wakes up with literal horns sprouting out the top of his head. But that’s not the only thing new about Ig. He also has the ability to make people reveal their darkest inner secrets.
In the clip, Radcliffe’s character goes looking for a man played by David Morse, and finds him on the other end of a shotgun.
MTV News’ Josh Horowitz spoke with Radcliffe about the role at Sundance 2013, just after he had wrapped on “Horns,” and he looked back on the whole experience with a laugh. “A few weeks after we finished I woke up one morning thinking, ’What was that? What was that film I just did?'” he said. “It’s so crazy. I feel like I have less concept of what it’s going to be now than when I first started, which is bizarre, but it’s very exciting.”
“Horns” does not currently have a release date, but expect news out of TIFF soon.
