Daniel Radcliffe brings out the worst in people in this first clip from Alexandre Aja's Horns

Sep. 10, 2013by: Jesse Giroux

HORNS (based on the book of the same name by author Joe Hill) will premiere at the TIFF and while there still isn't a trailer, Collider does have the first clip from the film. In it, Radcliffe sports a decent American accent and faces a shotgun wielding David Morse. Maybe I've been watching too much Breaking Bad, but does anyone else think Daniel Radcliffe sounds slightly like Jesse Pinkman in the clip?

Plot:

Merrin Williams is dead, slaughtered under inexplicable circumstances, leaving her beloved boyfriend Ignatius Perrish as the only suspect. On the first anniversary of Merrin's murder, Ig spends the night drunk and doing awful things. When he wakes the next morning he has a thunderous hangover . . . and horns growing from his temples. Ig possesses a terrible new power to go with his terrible new look—a macabre gift he intends to use to find the monster who killed his lover. Being good and praying for the best got him nowhere. Now it's time for revenge . . .It's time the devil had his due...

HORNS is a dark but incredibly funny (if you have a certain type of humor) novel and I really hope director Alexandre Aja has created a good balance for the film. It'll be a little tough considering some of the twisted events that occur in the book but if Aja and company do succeed, HORNS could turn out to be very special film.

HORNS doesn't have a release date, but should be in theaters sometime in 2014.

Extra Tidbit: Shia LaBeouf was attached to HORNS at one point but ended up leaving the film. You cool with Radcliffe or would you have preferred LaBeouf as Ig?

Loved the novel and will still see the film, but after seeing the clip, I dont think Radcliffe was the right pick for Ig. He just seems to lack that edge that the character needs. Not knocking the guy, hes a really good actor (The Woman in Black), but this role is better suited to someone with at least a little bad ass in him. Guess only time will tell.

Read the novel...

Radcliffe doesn't have the acting chops for this story.

Daniel Radcliffe was very, very lucky that he looked like Harry Potter. The rest of us were not.

meh

I know it was a short clip but his acting still seems about soap opera class, you can tell when actors have the ability, and I don't think he does, he never comes off natural.

I'm on board

I hope Joe Hill's first adaptation goes well, so we can see Heart Shaped Box in the near future. Much like his father, I think his storytelling deserves to at least be attempted on film.

Daniel Radcliffe a serious upgrade from Shia LaBeouf

Nothing against LaBeouf, but Radcliffe is a much better actor, and yes, he's managed to transcend his HARRY POTTER persona beautifully. He's becoming another George Clooney in that he's always attached to interesting projects.

Radcliffe is one hell of an actor. I say in a few years, once their careers are established even further, him and Watson will team up for a serious adult drama. They are both fascinating actors that have totally walked away from their iconic roles successfully.
