The Toronto International Film Festival announced its second wave of selections today, including the world premiere of Alexandre Aja’s Horns. Based on Joe Hill’s novel of the same title, Daniel Radcliffe stars as a young man who wakes up to find horns growing out of his head after the murder of his girlfriend.
Ig Perrish (Daniel Radcliffe) is accused for the violent rape and killing of his girlfriend, Merrin Williams (Juno Temple). After a hard night of drinking, Ig awakens, hungover, to find horns growing out of his head; they have the ability to drive people to confess sins and give in to selfish impulses. Ig decides to use this effective tool to discover the circumstances of his girlfriend’s death and to seek revenge by finding the true murderer.
