It's made for young adults, well, it's fun. So it's anyone's party, except for kids due to the excessive sex, swearing and messed up scenes.
It's a far cry from Stephen King's work, (the reason I'm mentioning King is because Horns was based on a novel of the same name written by King's son Joe Hill). Thus not being something that could be downright terrifying like when we think of the King legacy.
Although there's no Pennywise, Carrie, or Flagg, Joe has created a character we can all relate to, even when the horns grow out the head so to speak.
A character who will definitely not be forgotten for a very long time, if at all.
A young man named Ig is madly in love with a young woman named Merrin, he has been since they met as children.
One day Merrin is brutally murdered and the blame falls on Ig.
He protests his innocence and there's no evidence he did kill her, but everybody believes he did it and nobody really likes him anymore except for a couple of his close friends from the older days and his family.
On a night of drinking, and doing something rather anti-religious, he wakes the next morning with horns growing from his head.
He soon finds out that everyone who sees these horns tell him the truth no matter what, so he decides to find the true murderer of his beloved Merrin.
Throughout the film we see flashbacks of different people as Ig confronts them from the night of the murder. Although it slightly makes the pacing of the film off, the story is luckily interesting enough and fun enough to keep us watching.
There's also the fact that everyone's acting is spot on. Daniel Radcliffe has a dodgy american accent (most of the time perfect but every now and then his English accent pops through), with one of his other recent films (The Woman In Black) all I could see was Harry Potter, but now he's definitely grown out of it and become someone new entirely.
But the man I was impressed with the most was David Morse as Merrin's father. He really put his acting chops to work and portrayed a man whose lost his daughter as real as I could imagine it would be.
Even Juno Temple as Merrin did great, and I don't normally like her.
While on the subject of the actors I have to say the younger versions of the main characters did brilliantly too, they also looked quite close to their older counterparts.
To be honest almost everything was great about the film, as the demon grew and the secrets revealed, my interest was more and more embedded into the story.
The only disappointment was that it was in my eyes quite a predictable ending, and also part of it was ruined by one of the trailers for the film.
Having never read the book, I didn't know what to expect. But what was delivered was something beautiful and cruel.
Something special that will live on, just like the King's stories do.
