Horns (2014) Review:

Alexandre Aja latest movie was awaited for almost two years following its initial announcement, but thankfully, was worth the wait!

Based upon a novel by Joe Hill, the movie follows Iggy, a young boy who just lost his everlasting girlfriend and gets accused of the murder. What starts as a classic thriller quickly turns into a fantastic movie as Iggy wakes up with horns that makes everyone tell him the truth. Like in a classic Hollywood comedy such as Liar, Liar or What Woman Want, telling the truth generates tons of comical situation and the first half of the movie is hilarious. But this ability will also help him to elucidate who the killer really his.

The movie is purposefully confusing, and never really explain why such events are happening to him. This really was the weakness of the movie to me. But this easy to forget is one considers that Horns is one of the most original horror concepts in a long time. To be honest, apart from its fantastic aspect and a few cool deaths here and there, the movie doesn’t really feel like a horror movie.

Which is why I didn’t give him a better rating. But don’t be mistaken, it is nevertheless a great fantasy film. It does drag on a little towards the middle, and some of the flashbacks could have been cut out to make it denser, but the originality of the scenario, the beautiful visual and a convincing Daniel Radcliff makes it a movie not to be missed this year.
