Horns (2014) Movie Review and Trailer




Movie: Horns (2014)
Cast: Daniel Radcliffe, Juno Temple, Heather Graham, Kelli Garner, Max Minghella, Sabrina Carpenter
Genre: Drama, Fantasy, Horror

Horns (2014) is a breakthrough movie for Daniel Radcliffe after he has broken out of the shadow of his Harry Potter image. Horns (2014) takes you through the life of a young man accused of his girlfriend's murder. He gets frustrated and turns against God and as a result horns appear on his head. The presence of these horns causes people around him to blurt out their deepest, darkest, meanest thoughts and that brings humor and darkness to the whole movie.

The language of Horns (2014) is definitely not everyone's cup of tea and is especially not safe for kids. The fact that the horns bring out emotions like anger, lust and deceit causes characters to act is obscene ways and many may be offended by certain scenes in the movie.

Daniel Radcliffe looks good for the first time in a long time. He has worked on his looks and body and might have gone under the knife and hit the gym. His acting skills are obviously high quality and he can hold a film on hos own. Juno Temple is angelic and acts well like always. Heather Graham looks pretty and does a funny cameo. A special mention for Sabrina Carpenter who looked awesomely pretty and is an actor to look out for in the future and also Kelli Garner who was funny and depressive at the same time. One person who takes the lead as far as acting is concerned is Max Minghella. He acts superbly as the deceptive antagonist of the movie. I was really impressed by his mature performance.

The production value, direction, script and dialog is all at par and the overall verdict for Horns (2014) is that it is an entertainer and is recommended for mature audiences. I will urge people to watch this clever movie which has some though provoking content.

Rating: 3.5/5
