While I’m not totally in love with the name of this film, the teaser trailer does a good job of pulling you in and making you forget the lack of creativity in the title. To be fair, it’s the same title as the book by Joe Hill the movie is based on.
The film has been completed for a while, debuting last fall in Toronto and to be played again at Comic Con in San Diego this week.
Radcliffe is playing the role of Ig, who wakes up from a drinking binge to find out he not only has horns growing out of the top of his head, but that his girlfriend has been raped and killed and he’s the leading suspect. The good news is, his new set of horns comes with the power of making people confess their fins.
This role is a risk for the Harry Potter actor as the horns themselves, if not on the right actor with the right acting chops can come across silly. From the teaser trailer, Radcliffe seems to be able to pull this off although doing so with a Canadian accent.
Co-starring Juno Temple, Max Minghella, Heather Graham and David Morse, the film is scheduled to be released in the UK fittingly this year on Halloween.
