Ever since the latest film from director Alexandre Aja was announced, we’ve been pretty excited.

With the likes of The Hills Have Eyes, Switchblade Romance and even Piranha ticking the right boxes for us, Aja has already proved his genre pedigree.

So we are well intrigued by what he’ll do with author Joe Hill’s offbeat novel, which centres on a young man (Ig Perrish), who stands accused of the violent rape and murder of his girlfriend.

So far, so regular crime story, but Horns takes a vicious detour into the offbeat when Ig wakes up with a stinking hangover – and a pair of horns to boot.

Not only that, but the horns have the ability to force people to confess their sins, allowing Ig to go on a quest to find the true killer.

Daniel Radcliffe stars as Ig, while Juno Temple takes on the role of luckless girlfriend Merrin Williams, with support from the likes of David Morse and Heather Graham.

Horns hits cinemas, fittingly, on Halloween – October 31.
