In a new horror tale based on Joe Hill’s dark fantasy novel, Daniel Radcliffe sprouts horns and welcomes in some evil in the new teaser trailer for Horns.
The British actor, who sports an American accent in this film, plays as Perrish, a man who awakens after the mysterious murder of his girlfriend with horns growing out of his head. He also discovers that he has a strange power that forces people to reveal their darkest urges and desires to him.
Radcliffe told The Sun, “It’s a very, very different type of part than anything I’ve done before. He’s a great character. It’s nice to play a real sort of anti-hero who does a few genuinely nasty things to people.”
The film, directed by Alexandre Aje, also stars Juno Temple, Heather Graham, and James Remar. Horns is set to release in the UK on October 31.
UPDATE: Horns will be released in the US on October 31 as well.
