Horns

By Don Guillory

 

There are few films that give an audience the chance to take a look into themselves and into its characters as Horns offers. The film, stars Daniel Radcliffe as Iggy, who is being accused of raping and murdering his longtime girlfriend. When face with the constant accusations and rumors surrounding the murder, he becomes disillusioned with the world, his family, and his friends. As a result, he begins to grow horns and see the darker side of people as they begin to reveal who they are to him. He takes it upon himself to use the horns and the new ability they afford him in order to find his girlfriend’s true killer. In addition to searching for the killer the audience sees where the film and the story allow for a deeper analysis and critique of society, as a whole.

At times the story does seem to drag on and have trouble in keeping the audience fully engaged due to some inconsistencies. The film tries to establish itself as a love story, a mystery, a biblical allegory, and a dark comedy. The problem is that in trying to do all of these, it creates a confusing identity. The basic premise and storyline is good enough to grab the audience’s attention and keep one’s interest. The performance of Radcliffe and the supporting cast is decent despite the way that the film allows for a mixed identity. The film altogether is quite original in its approach to the way that it allows the audience to have insight to characters through Radcliffe’s interaction with them. In a way, it makes one wonder what secrets are being hidden from us from each other on a daily basis.
