Movie review:Horns

Saturday, November 01, 2014 Liyana Hanim 0 Comments

This movie is a bit weird to say the least but I liked it.The movie is based on the book written by Stephen King's son,Joe Hill.I haven't read the book but I doubt that the movie stayed 100% to the original story.Oh,Joe Hill didn't use his father's surname because he wanted to succeed on his own.

First noticeable thing about the movie is that...Daniel Radcliffe has a really good American accent.hahaha.He makes us believe that he's not British.But not just that,almost all of the other prominent characters in the movie played by Juno Temple, Max Minghella and Joe Anderson are all BRITISH!All of them were awesome in this movie.British actors in an American-Canadian movie.

Oh,there's a lot of controversial scenes in this movie that if it somehow manage to be shown in the cinema,surely there'll be a lot of scenes that will get the axe.

The movie makes me sad for Daniel's character,named Ig(Ignatius) Perrish because everybody..including his parents believed that he killed his longtime girlfriend,Merrin.We of course weren't told at the start of the movie how Merrin was killed and why people seemed to think that Ig killed her.

All that was shown was that Ig and Merrin was so in love and Merrin one night end up dead in the woods.

One night when the people in the town went to the place that Merrin was killed in order to cherished her memories,Ig was hiding inside the tree house and he heard what they were saying about him.After they left he got so angry that he started to pee on the stuffs that they gave Merrin and said something along the lines about God or something(sorry I can't remember as I watched this movie a few weeks back).

The next day when he woke up,he has horns growing from his forehead.Actual horns.Then he also found out that by having the horns,he can make people confess their deepest darkest secrets and desires.So Ig uses this power to find out who was the person who killed Merrin.

The only person that he met who wasn't affected by the power of his horns was his bestfriend Lee.It made us as the viewer thought..oh,Lee believed that his friend is innocent and he must be such a great guy because he didn't have any bad thing to confess.His brother Terry was another person who believe he was innocent at the start as well..but he has a secret too!

I love the plot twist in this movie and it's a really big one!That's when things become a little bit effed up.You won't believe what it was and I won't spoil it for you.All I have to say is that Daniel Radcliffe,Juno Temple,Max Minghella and Joe Anderson were really great in this movie.

A really great cast with a crazy story set in a beautiful setting.It was an enjoyable watch that made you feel uncomfortable during some parts.Some scenes made me go...wtffffff.The movie really took me by surprise!It also proves that Daniel Radcliffe is wayyyyy past his Harry Potter days..I mean,he did act naked in a play and he was semi-naked in one scene in this movie.This movie has mystery,gore,sex(of course!),nudity(unexpectedly gross one involving an old man!)!

Watch it for yourself and do leave a comment below so I'll know what you thought of it :)
