My Short Review:

It's really a different, dark comedy horror that is very funny in a twisted way. I found myself enjoying its odd sense of humor and ultimate originality. It's not great but it's truly different and stands out as being something very unique. Daniel Radcliffe truly shines in the part. I really thought he was brilliant in the part and one of the best acting performances by him to date. Directed by Alexandre Aja. I have always liked his ability to bring new and freshness to the reality of horror. Alexandre Aja directed Horn’s in a very black comical horror way with a twist of supernatural dread. The best way to describe it, its Needful Things meets Kevin Smith. Written and adapted from Joe Hill’s novel. Hill is an odd and experience writer that blends bleakness with a sense of underlining humor. Hill is totally original and very unique in his writing.  The movie is very different and comes off as something you either really like or really loathe. I found myself laughing and absolutely entertained by its weirdness. I think the major flaw I had with it was the rushed ending. The final showdown seemed to fast and corny and the film made it seem extremely b-grade at the end. Loved the acting which I think is the films strongest point.
