The Plot: Horns is the story of Ig Perrish, a young man who wakes up to strange horns sprouting from his temples, after being accused of his girlfriend’s mysterious death.
Review: The film is original and funny. It’s gory at times but for someone like me who doesn’t like horror movies I thought it was quite good. The film skips through so many movie gendres and plot twists that it can be unsettling but it’s not hard to follow. It’s a good dark comedic fantasy film. You cannot help but laugh. The movie also raises questions about people’s true nature, I guess that the serious aspect of the movie.
Horns is very difficult to describe, it is kind of a horror movie but the tone is not quite that. It has some horror, Romance, Fantasy elements to it with a touch of revenge movie all the while being comedic. The movie combines all of that, it’s a bit crazy but entertaining.
I really liked the way the story was told with the flashbacks, the present and how the characters are unfolded, it was smart. It made me curious about the book and maybe more so that I know who wrote it.
Horns is a nice Halloween movie, let me know what you thought about it?
