2013 Movies You're Not Looking Forward To Yet, But Should Be
The adaptation for Joe Hill's novel Horns doesn't yet have a release date, but it has wrapped production, with Daniel Radcliffe starring as lead character Ig Perrish. Part mystery, part dark fantasy, Hill's story begins with Ig waking up a year after his girlfriend Merrin (Juno Temple) was brutally murdered. Hungover and disoriented, Ig soon discovers that he's sprouted a set of horns that give him the ability to draw the darkest thoughts and confessions from people. He eventually begins to use this ability to try to solve the mystery of his girlfriend's death.
Radcliffe in the lead might be reason enough for some to look forward to Alexandre Aja's adaptation of the novel, but it's the source material that has those of us who have read the book excited about this one. Hill's novel is a true page turner, with a story that's well paced and organized, suspenseful, emotional and ultimately satisfying right to the end. There's so much potential for a great movie with this story. We can only hope that Horns will be as compelling as the novel. And it should be especially interesting to see how Radcliffe does in tackling this dark role. Hopefully Horns will get a release date soon. In the meantime, if you haven't already, Hill's novel is well worth checking out.
