In the recent issue of Total Film magazine, British actor Daniel Radcliffe discusses his recent projects, particularly the American dark fantasy thriller Horns. Directed by Alexandre Aja, the movie focuses on Ig Perrish (Daniel Radcliffe), who’s been accused of murdering his girlfriend, only to discover new paranormal activities that will help him uncover the true killer.
In the interview, Radcliffe admits that the film can be difficult to classify as far as genres are concerned:
“The first third starts off like some bizarre absurdist comedy, and then it becomes this epic tragic love story and revenge saga with elements of horror, fantasy, religion and everything else you can imagine along the way,” he explained. “And rock’n’roll, that’s another important influence in the movie. I saw it the other day and I do think that Alexandre has done an amazing job.”
“The Woman In Black is more authentically horror. Horns has horror elements in it but it’s not really a horror film. “There’s one sequence where – in Alex’s words – we go into full slasher movie mode. Generally speaking, it’s never just one thing, which is why it will be a challenging film to market.”
