Watch: Daniel Radcliffe Looks Pretty Evil in 'Horns' Teaser Trailer

July 14, 2014


"No one is born evil. But sometimes, when you go through hell, the only way out is to walk deeper into the fire." Hot on the heels of the teaser poster this morning, the first teaser trailer for the adaptation of Horns starring Daniel Radcliffe has arrived. However, since it's a teaser trailer, it keeps Radcliffe's reveal in the lead role under wraps until the last 10 seconds or so. Also, we can't tell if that's Radcliffe doing the voiceover with a flawless American accent or if that's Max Minghella (he's British too). Either way, this certainly looks haunting and gritty, something very different for the Harry Potter franchise superstar. Watch below!

Here's the teaser trailer for Alexandre Aja's Horns, first found on YouTube:

Alexandre Aja (Piranha 3D) directs Horns with a script from Keith Bunin ("In Treatment") based on Joe Hill's novel of the same name. The story follows a 26-year-old man (Daniel Radcliffe) who wakes up after a nasty hangover to find his girlfriend (Juno Temple) has been raped and murdered and he's the lead suspect. Then he discovers horns growing out of his head that grant him the power to make people confess their sins, which comes in handy as he searches for his girlfriend's killer and prepares for revenge. Kelli Garner, Max Minghella and more also star in the film Dimension & Radius-TWC release October 31st. Interested?

    It's Radcliffe, cause his accent in the clip from a few months back was pretty spot on

    If this movie touches anywhere close to the poignant and amazing novel turned in by Joe Hill…we're all in for a treat. HORNS is what real horror is about: caring for the characters when they go through the worst. F uck those mindless slasher flicks!

    This has my attention. Looking forward to it
    Aja inspires no confidence. But Radcliffe's American accent seems intriguing enough.

      You don't like Aja? Except for Mirrors, I'm definitely a fan. Haha...and nothing about this preview looked that great to me but I'm still anxious to see it just because of Aja.

    Why do I feel like they are clinging to the Harry potter fans just to sell tickets? I mean really a snake in the first teaser?

      Why do I feel like you haven't read the book?
      • Vincent Cipollone
        Do you understand what my message I was conveying? Why show similarities to Harry Potter? Regardless if a snake is a huge plot point in the book.

          Snakes are a HUGE plot point. Without seeing snakes in the trailer, readers of the book would think major themes and plot points are being discarded. Trust me. Absolutely integral to the film.
          • Vincent Cipollone
            Is it integral to the trailer tho? Readers of the book would know it would be in the movie if it's as integral as you say it is.
          • denverchris
            You've got two people who've read the book saying it is. As a person who HASN'T read the book, you can draw your own conclusion. Although I gotta say, I don't see comparisons to HP enough of a reason to remove it. Removing snakes from the trailer would be like removing all cars from trailers for John Carpenters movies coz yer worried about comparisons to Christine.

    I've got zero confidence here. I don't trust Aja to pick up the subtext and themes of the novel and translate that into something other than bashing you in the face with it. There are heavy, sad, tragic and very abstract elements in this book. Would be nice to see them treated appropriately. I've seen nothing from Aja that tells me he's capable of doing that.
