Movie review of Horns

Horns - 5/10
Directed by Alexandre Aja
Written by Keith Bunin (screenplay), Joe Hill (novel)
Cast - Daniel Radcliffe, Juno Temple, Heather Graham, David Morse

Plot Summary
In the aftermath of his girlfriend's mysterious death, a young man awakens to strange horns sprouting from his temples.

I think this is the first time I'm watching a movie which Daniel Radcliffe is not harry potter. Got to say this though, his post potter acting is not too bad despite a few hiccups. I did like how he acted in horns but his accent was alittle too forced for me. The rest of the cast had minimal impact in the movie. Veterans like heather graham and David Morse were good but just not enough screen time for them. Script was alright, nothing fantastic. I understand that this was from a book and usually book to movie screen plays doesn't cover everything even important points of the book. I have not read the book so I cant fully judge how the story is.I liked how the movie started. It got a little dull in the middle and sadly the end was abit too predictable. And that's why I'm just giving horns a 5/10. It's forgettable and I probably won't watch this again. I do like the make up and costume however. The devil look and horns reminded me of Tim curry's devil in Legend but at a smaller scale of course.

Not really worth watching on a weekend. Probably on a weekday if you have nothing else to watch.

Recommended movies done by the director
High tension
The Hills have eyes
Piranha 3D
