Its time to get horny !

A man is accused of murdering his girlfriend, and he is ostracized by the town in which he resides. One morning, after a rough night of binge drinking, he wakes up to find that he is sprouting a pair of horns from either side of his head. After that, everyone around him starts to tell him their darkest and deepest desires and uncomfatable truths. Using this new found power, he goes on a mission to find the real person who killed his beloved girlfriend.

Daniel Radcliffe puts in one hell of a performance in this movie, donning a rather unusual American accent, he does this with such finesse and ease that by the time the movie has reached its 2 hour runtime you forget Daniel Radcliffe is actually a British actor !

The movie stands out from anything I have seen this year, the religious context mixed with the uniqueness of the script really does put it into a genre of its own. During the story Ig (Radcliffe) voices his opinion about religion and how his girlfriend was a regular church goer yet this still didn’t stop her being taken away so early in life. The moment in which this happens the film changes tone and feel. Its as almost in that moment that Ig became the fallen angel, ex-communicated from the heavens with only the devil on his side.

There is a slight contradiction thou however, as Ig develops horns no one around him seems to show any sort of emotion or shock towards it, its accepted and moved on bar one person, but this one person would spoil the outcome of the story. At first I thought the horns represented the inner personality of evil,  this initially made me think he had killed his girlfriend but as the film progress’s we find out this isn’t the case, in fact quite the opposite. More of a coping with your personal demons and it being physically portrayed on screen. Its almost as thou the devil is helping Ig to prove his innocence which would be classed as a good deed and would surely not win the devil any ‘devil points’ so to speak. So with the devil as the anti-hero in this movie we proceed with the film.

Some sections of the story are rather predictable but for the majority of the film you are hooked from start to finish, full credit to the film makers and Daniel Radcliffe for putting in an amazing performance. Finally something that stands out amongst the dross that is mass produced in our society. Stay tuned for the angel of retribution scene, WOW !
