More Info:
  • Alonso Duralde

    Much of what makes Horns so impressive, and such fun to watch, is the film's ability to juggle a variety of genres.

  • Gary Goldstein

    As things turn irrevocably supernatural, the movie's anything-goes quality ends up deepening instead of torpedoing the narrative, as can sometimes happen in horror flicks.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • John DeFore

    A fable-like horror mystery with strong comic and romantic tendencies, Alexandre Aja's Horns draws on source material by cult scribe (and son of Stephen King) Joe Hill to deliver something much more beguiling than the straighter genre fare (High Tension, The Hills Have Eyes) that made his name.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Drew McWeeny

    It's like a supernatural version of "Gone Girl," and yet, there is some very, very dark comedy in the film as well, and by keeping it dark instead of letting the humor undercut the severity of the situation, Aja has made what has to be his most commercial film so far.

  • Claudia Puig

    Through most of the movie, the former star of the Harry Potter movies sports an impressive set of curling ram-style protuberances that bring to mind a character in "Pan's Labyrinth."

    USA Today Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    I just wish there’d been more to this allegory, something more than Radcliffe’s Ig explaining his protrusions to one and all with “They’re horns. It’s a crazy story.”

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    Aja's film ends up being an fairly satisfying Halloween diversion, using those magical horns to overcome its flaws and transform itself into a decidedly dark, but weirdly sweet, ride.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Bilge Ebiri

    There aren’t too many ingenious new concepts in today’s horror and fantasy films, but I’ll be damned if Horns doesn’t come close, at least at first.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    There are so many red herrings and plot twists, such a dense barrage of flashbacks and quick cuts, that you may find yourself as rattled and breathless as Ig himself. And a bit let down at the end, when all the noise, color and energy resolve into a basic whodunit decked out in weak special effects and spiritual swamp gas.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    It's an interesting idea that loses steam as it gains gore. The development of the story is much better than the payoff. It's fun while it lasts.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Eric Kohn

    Predominantly a failure of tone, Horns has plenty of admirable traits and yet dooms itself from the outset. It's an admirable conceit stuffed into far less subtle material.

    indieWIRE Full Review
  • Chris Nashawaty

    It seems to have been made by people who couldn't decide if their film was a horror flick, a whodunit, or a "Hellboy" knockoff.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    The result is that a story with a couple of good ideas founders for lack of a third or fourth good idea. Still, any picture that features Radcliffe having a nervous breakdown for two hours has something to recommend it.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Jeff Baker

    An effective, low-budget horror movie is lurking at the edges of Horns but never gets a chance to reveal itself.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Peter Keough

    Directed by splat-pack director Alexandre Aja (“Piranha 3D”) with uncharacteristic but still gruesome restraint, adapted from what seems a very busy novel by Joe Hill, Horns resembles an awkward collaboration between Nathaniel Hawthorne, Stephen King, and Rob Zombie.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Brad Wheeler

    Horns is allegorically cluttered, unsure of its tone and outrageous with its snakery in a half-serious supernatural thriller about good, evil and redemption in a garden of Eden.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Christy Lemire

    Horns would seem like another gamble, and another opportunity to stretch. It’s a supernatural thriller, territory he’s familiar with, but taken to a raunchy, grotesque extreme. Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Horns has style to burn, but there's no there there.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Jesse Hassenger

    Horns fumbles with its own powers, too. If its moments of Aja-ian archness blended better with the macabre sincerity that presumably comes from the source material, it might have provided a real autumnal chill. Instead, it’s more ambitious and complex than the horror movies that dutifully clock in to haunt multiplexes around Halloween—without actually being better.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Sara Stewart

    As for the magical-realist horns, they make a nice bad-boy look for Radcliffe and a handy plot device, but are never really explained in a satisfactory way. They have the side effect of making anyone who sees them immediately forget them — which I suspect may be the case with this movie as well.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Steve Davis

    The movie works best as a whodunit with a pointed twist.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Ed Gonzalez

    For a story so unconventional, it's executed without director Alexandre Aja's typical commitment to anarchic awe.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Tasha Robinson

    Its attempts to force comedy, tragedy, farce, action, and melodrama into the same story never quite fit.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Calum Marsh

    [Aja] has outfitted Horns with enough talent that the film is rather easy to admire aesthetically. The problems are more foundational, even conceptual—and they are thus harder to reconcile. Full Review
  • Peter Debruge

    This overly devout adaptation of Joe Hill’s sacrilegious text benefits from the helmer’s twisted sensibility, but suffers from a case of overall silliness.

    Variety Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    Alexandre Aja’s supernatural thriller Horns isn’t an entirely successful movie. But with a committed Daniel Radcliffe in the lead, it’s a consistently intriguing one.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Amy Nicholson

    Most oppressively, every inch of Horns is choked in religious metaphor that strangles the fun from the film. Aja clutters the movie with golden crosses and Garden of Eden snakes, but doesn't dare wrestle with the theology behind them — this is a snapshot of a steak, not a full meal.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Cath Clarke

    In the end Horns is weird without being interesting.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • Olly Richards

    Long-shelved, the final product never lives up to the promise of its contemporary-Grimm-brothers conceit.

    Empire Full Review
  • Henry Barnes

    Horns plays instead like a high concept beer advert – breezily stylish, memorable in its time, but a bit too full of gas.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    A lot of the rougher stuff, depicting Ig's late-inning vengeance, is sadistically misjudged. It's hard to jerk tears a beat or two after gleeful rounds of brutality, even if it happens to, or because of, dear wee Daniel Radcliffe.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    Heedless of purpose, Horns charges full speed ahead anyway, ramming its high-concept hooey down your throat until the only heat you feel is from indigestion.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Rex Reed

    Based on an overly imaginative book by Stephen King’s son Joe Hill, it’s a movie that doesn’t exactly unfold as much as hyperventilate.

    New York Observer Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    Horns is uncertain in tone — most of its attempts at humor fall flat — and amateurish at best.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Rodrigo Perez

    When Horns thankfully concludes, relief sets in; this hellishly misguided effort concludes with an inferno and sequels are never sprung from the equivalent of a mouthful of ash.
