Daniel Radcliffe looks murderous in first Horns poster

The Harry Potter star is suspected of murder in a new offbeat thriller, also starring Juno Temple, Max Minghella and Heather Graham

The Boy Who Lived is now the boy who might have killed (not quite so catchy, we know).


It’s hardly a mistake that Daniel Radcliffe is a million miles away from Harry Potter in his new movie. Since the final film in the franchise, the 24-year-old actor has purposefully chosen diverse roles that prove he can play more than a wand-wielding teenage wizard. 

And this latest role is no exception. 

Though, having said that, we did notice a few similarities between this front cover and a few from Harry Potter… 

Horns sees Radcliffe play Ig Perrish, a man accused of the violent rape and murder of his girlfriend Merrin Wililams (Juno Temple). After a night of heavy drinking, Ig wakes up to find horns growing out of his head – horns which make people confess their sins – and so embarks on a mission to find Merrin’s true murderer. 

Directed by Alexandra Aja, Horns is based on Joe Hill’s dark fantasy novel and also stars Max Minghella, Heather Graham and David Morse. 


Horns will be in UK cinemas 31 October.
