We have two very different, but both very cool horror posters to share with you today. A UK poster for Adam Wingard’s new thriller The Guest has been released, and coming straight outta Comic-Con is a really impressive new poster for Alexandre Aja’s Horns, which stars Daniel Radcliffe.
The Guest will open the UK’s FrightFest on August Bank Holiday weekend.
Icon will release the film here in the UK on September 5th, a week after the film makes its UK debut at FrightFest.
The Guest is written by Simon Barrett and directed by Adam Wingard, and the cast includes Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey), Maika Monroe, Brendan Meyer, Sheila Kelley, Leland Orser, and Lance Reddick (American Horror Story, Fringe).
The film tells the story of a young soldier who arrives on the doorstep of the Peterson family, claiming to be a good friend of their beloved son who died in action. The Petersons welcome David into their home and into their lives, but when people start mysteriously dying in town, mayhem ensues as their teenage daughter Anna starts wondering if David is responsible.
Horns is directed by Alexandre Aja and will be released in UK cinemas on October 31st.
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.
