The marketing campaign appears to be really kicking off for director Alexandre Aja’s (Switchblade Romance, Piranha, The Hills Have Eyes) new horror Horns, which see’s Daniel Radcliffe exploring his dark side in the title role.
Now comes the official poster after the first (probably un-official) poster and first teaser trailer earlier this week. The official US poster can be seen below, and I am sure you’ll agree that it is fascinating.
Horns is directed by Alexandre Aja.
Daniel Radcliffe leads a top notch ensemble cast that includes Juno Temple, Max Minghella, Joe Anderson, Kelli Garner, Heather Graham, David Morse, Kathleen Quinlan and James Remar. The film is based on the novel by comic book author Joe Hill. Keith Bunin wrote the screenplay.
HORNS was produced by Red Granite Pictures founders and producing partners Riza Aziz and Joey McFarland in addition to Mandalay’s Cathy Shulman. Alexandre Aja is also a producer.
Horns, a supernatural thriller driven by fantasy, mystery, and romance, follows Ig Perrish (Radcliffe), the number one suspect for the violent rape and murder of his girlfriend, Merrin (Temple). Hungover from a night of hard drinking, Ig awakens one morning to find horns starting to grow from his own head and soon realizes their power drives people to confess their sins and give in to their most selfish and unspeakable impulses – an effective tool in his quest to discover the true circumstances of his late girlfriend’s tragedy and for exacting revenge on her killer.
This rock and roll infused dark fantasy explores why bad things happen to good people and what the loss of true love can do to a man. The widely acclaimed book was on the New York Times bestseller list for six weeks and has become an international bestseller as well.
