ALEXANDRE Aja, director of The Hills Have Eyes and Piranha 3D, remains firmly in the horror genre with this quirky supernatural thriller that shows a very different side to Harry Potter actor Daniel Radcliffe.

Ig Perrish (Radcliffe) is accused of the rape and violent murder of his beloved girlfriend, Merrin Williams (Juno Temple, formerly of King’s College, Taunton), but he vociferously pleads his innocence. 

After a night of excessive booze – a pitiful attempt to salve his grief – Ig regains consciousness with a raging hangover and discovers he has a pair of horns growing out of his head. 

Even more bizarre, these horns possess the power to make people confess their sins and succumb to the most primal and selfish impulses. 

Ig realises the potential of the horns and he uses his newfound abilities to discover the circumstances of Merrin’s death and unmask the murderer. 

David Morse and Heather Graham co-star.
