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.
The River [ABC, Tuesday, 9/8C] is the latest attempt to produce a scary horror show for network television. Co-created by Oren Peli – of Paranormal Activity fame – it’s a show that follows the family, friends and crew of a famed explorer/television host as they follow a previously unknown offshoot of the Amazon River six months after he disappeared. And, yeah, it’s scary.
What begins as an effort to get “a little culture” before a spring break filled with partying ends, turns into a descent into a new kind of hell.
