The first teaser trailer has been released for Horns, an upcoming supernatural thriller starring Daniel Radcliffe. An adaptation of Joe Hill’s novel of the same name, Horns sees the Harry Potter star play a man who wakes up one morning to find horns growing from his head. On top that, his girlfriend (Juno Temple) has been raped and murdered – and he’s the number one suspect. Director Alexandre Aja has a resume filled with horror films of various quality, with High Tension (aka Haute Tension), The Hills Have Eyes (2006), Mirrors and Piranha 3D gathering him quite a following amongst horror fans. We haven’t read the book, but this teaser does provide an unsettling glimpse at what could be a great little film. It’s great to see Radcliffe continue to climb out from that Potter-shadow, and the book has enough ardent followers to suggest that this story is one worth seeing unfold.
Check out the first official poster underneath the Horns trailer.
Horns also stars Max Minghella, James Remar, Joe Anderson, and Kelli Garner.
Official synopsis for Horns:
Blamed for the death of his longtime girlfriend (Temple), a small-town guy (Radcliffe) awakens one morning to find a pair of horns growing from his head in this supernatural thriller from horror ace Alexandre Aja (HAUTE TENSION, PIRANHA 3D).
