Having failed to make any sort of dent at the box office last year, offbeat horror Horns will be looking to make waves when it hits DVD in March.

Starring Daniel Radcliffe as a young man searching for answers in the most bizarre circumstances, director Alexandre Aja’s flick seemed a unusual, somewhat bizarre proposition – and proved to be the case.

Here’s the synopsis (in case you need it):

Ig Perrish (Radcliffe) is accused of the violent rape and killing of his girlfriend, Merrin Williams (Temple). After a hard night of drinking, Ig awakens, hungover, to find horns growing out of his head; they have the ability to drive people to confess sins and give in to selfish impulses. Ig decides to use this effective tool to discover the circumstances of his girlfriend’s death and to seek revenge by finding the true murderer.

The film features an impressive cast, with the likes of Juno Temple, Heather Graham and James Remar joining Radcliffe in action.

To be honest, we were pretty disappointed when this failed to take off, as we are happy to see Daniel pushing the envelope a bit in terms of career choices, so let’s hope more people check it out when it hits shelves on March 16 (digital download on March 2).
