'Horns' trailer: Speak of the devil and Daniel Radcliffe doth appear

Losing your girlfriend to murder is hard enough. Losing your girlfriend to murder, being accused of that murder, and then sprouting devil-like horns out of nowhere? Probably the worst.

This is what happens to Daniel Radcliffe’s character Ig in Horns, a film based on a book of the same name by author Joe Hill about a man who grows horns only to find that they give him great power. Because apparently, people start confessing their every secret to you once you start looking like the devil.

Video: Daniel Radcliffe drives through hell in 'Horns' trailer

Daniel Radcliffe is smart, rich, and has a good sense of humor—and all three qualities are evident in Horns, the festival movie based on Joe Hill’s supernatural mystery novel and directed by horror maestro Alexandre Aja.

He’s smart because he’s constantly trying new things, like playing a murder suspect who sprouts devilish horns out of his head. Rich, from all of his Harry Potter money, which allows him to take chances on right-field genre movies without having to check his bank account first. And funny, because Horns is full of clever references to playing The Boy Who Lived for half of his life.

The movie, which co-stars Juno Temple, Heather Graham, and The Social Network‘s Max Minghella, premiered at Toronto last fall and is coming to San Diego’s Comic-Con next week. In the trailer, Radcliffe’s hero, Ig, communes with snakes, has a splitting headache, and drives a Gremlin. Check it out below: READ FULL STORY

Toronto: Daniel Radcliffe talks Harry Potter and the glee of watching the media fight

J.K. Rowling might be returning to the magical universe that gave rise to Harry Potter, but Daniel Radcliffe has never looked back since retiring his wand in 2011 — seemingly for good — after a decade playing The Boy Who Lived. In the last several years, Radcliffe has tackled a variety of eclectic parts that almost seemed designed to blow up our image of him as the iconic boy-wizard. There were his performances in the stage revival of Equus and then the song-and-dance Broadway hit, How to Succeed in Business…, and a starring turn in last year’s gothic horror film, The Woman in Black.

At this year’s Toronto Film Festival, the 24-year-old was its unofficial poster-boy, arriving with starring roles in three different — very different — films that demonstrated once again that Radcliffe isn’t afraid of venturing outside the box. In Kill Your Darlings, which premiered earlier this year at Sundance and opens in theaters Oct. 16, Radcliffe plays a college-aged Allen Ginsberg who falls in league with a spirited group of mesmerizing free-thinkers, led by Dane DeHaan’s Lucien Carr, a troubled soul who opens Ginsberg’s mind, body, and soul to new experiences. In Horns, based on Joe Hill’s macabre mystery novel, he plays a young man whose presumed guilt in a small-town murder seems to be manifested in the horns that suddenly sprout out of his forehead. And in The F Word, which was recently acquired by CBS Films, he proves that he can also deliver a straightforward romantic-comedy, playing a relatively normal guy who settles for being best friends — friends being the F-word in the movie’s title — with the girl he loves, played by Zoe Kazan. “It’s that rarest of things,” says Radcliffe. “It’s a really cheerful, happy film without being sentimental.”

The Brit sat down with EW to discuss his new movies, what it’s like to be the actor who used to be Harry Potter, and his upcoming role in Frankenstein.

Toronto: Daniel Radcliffe is damned good at 'Horns' premiere

After one glimpse, the title to Daniel Radcliffe’s newest movie requires no further explanation. But there’s so much more to unwrap in Horns, Alexandre Aja’s subversely funny adaptation of Joe Hill’s macabre mystery novel. Yes, Harry Potter grows horns after his angelic girlfriend (Juno Temple) is brutally murdered and he’s the only suspect. In defense of the town’s quick rush to judgment, there are also scenes where a singed Radcliffe wields a pitchfork and communes with menacing snakes. (Once a parseltongue, always a parseltongue.) Also, he drives a flaming-orange Gremlin, so can you really blame the simple townsfolk for thinking he’s tight with Satan?

Horns, which premiered last night at the Toronto Film Festival, is something totally different and unexpected. Radcliffe plays Ig Perrish, who finds that those grotesque horns suddenly growing out of his head have one useful side effect. Rather than being frightened or disgusted, other people are oddly put at ease by the sight of them and compulsively express their deepest and darkest secrets and desires to Ig. There’s the local floozy who really wants to eat all the donuts after sex, the buddy-cops who want to take their relationship to the next level, and Ig’s mother, who just wants him to disappear because his plight makes her so darn sad. “I bring out the worst in people,” Ig laments. But once he begins to understand the blessing that accompanies his curse, he sets out to use his power to find the real killer.

Toronto: Mess with Daniel Radcliffe, get the 'Horns' -- EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS

Harry Potter had it easy! Daniel Radcliffe is accustomed to playing a character with a painful forehead scar that draws annoying stares, but this headache is on a whole other level.

In Horns, a supernatural mystery that premieres tomorrow at the Toronto Film Festival, Radcliffe plays Ig, a small-time guy who’s suspected of brutally murdering his longtime girlfriend (Juno Temple). The town seems to have made up its mind about his guilt, especially when he begins to sprout devilish horns while the police investigate the crime. Before long, though, Ig notices that his frightful horns seem to have one beneficial side-effect: people around him suddenly seem compelled to tell him the truth, the horrible truth that they’ve never told anyone else. Just maybe, those horns of his will help him find out who really committed the murder.

The film is directed by Alexandre Aja, the mind behind The Hills Have Eyes and Piranha 3D. Two more exclusive photos from Horns below. READ FULL STORY
