Horns is based on the novel by Joe Hill. It stars Daniel Radcliffe as Ig Perrish, broken-hearted young man who is believed by everyone in town to have raped and murdered his girlfriend, Merrin Williams. Things get weird when he awakens after a night of serious drinking with horns beginning to grow out of his forehead.
Written by Keith Bunin (In Treatment) and directed by Alexandre Aja (The Hills Have Eyes), Horns is a deeply disturbed, bleakly funny and frequently scary little film that gives Radcliffe another quality role.

I have not read Cormac McCarthy’s The Road so I came to the film with no expectations in that regard. What I saw was a bleak, dank, relentlessly dark film in which every time hope raised its head, it was peremptorily smacked down, which makes the final scene seem like either a cheat or a copout.
The Road follows a man and his son on a post-apocalyptic journey from their home to the coast, always traveling south. It begins somewhere in the middle of the journey and ends when the journey reaches a metaphoric fork in the road.
