From Harry to Hellboy

Well, Daniel Radcliffe has picked quite the dark projects, hasn't he?  This fall, Mr. Radcliffe will star in Horns, a thriller from director Alexandre Aja.  The book was written by Joe Hill, and it's been sitting on my bookshelf since I heard the project was announced.  Way to keep up, Joey.

Radcliffe plays Ig Perrish, a young man whose girlfriend, Merrin (Juno Temple) was found brutally raped and murdered, and everyone is convinced that he is responsible.  One day, Ig wakes up, and there is a pair of curved, Maleficent-y horns sprouting from his head.  It may sound all hokey and lame, but the trailer is dark and gloomy.  Looks like there is never sunshine in this town.    

We don't get to see Daniel with the horns until the very end of the trailer when he's sitting down with, you know, a snake around his neck.  Yeesh.  He's at the center of the first teaser poster (above), so we at least get that.
