“Blamed for the murder of his girlfriend, a man (Daniel Radcliffe) awakes one morning to find he has grown a pair of horns. Armed, now, with supernatural powers, he sets out to find the killer.”
I was so excited to watch this movie. Even before I read the book. Why you ask? Because it has Daniel Radcliffe in it! Who doesn’t love that man??? 😬 I’m usually one of those people that loves to read the books before the movies. Well this time I wish I would have watched before I read. I did enjoy the movie but I feel like I would have enjoyed it more had I not read the book yet. I get that movies will vary from the books and things will get left out because of time. But….there were some changes in this movie I felt did not need to be changed. It would have not added anymore time onto the movie and to me Merrin’s sister situation was a major part in the book. I won’t go into too much detail since I don’t want to spoil for anyone who hasn’t read or seen the movie. But if you have and would like to have a descusion we can talk below in the comments. I also felt like the movie was almost robotic, especially when they change scenes. Maybe I watched it too soon after reading the book. I think I will watch it again after a couple months and see if my feelings change at all.
I would recommend both the book and the movie to anyone who loves horror. It was such a unique story and very enjoyable.
