Opening in theaters on Halloween, October 31st is the new horror film from director Alexandre Aja (Mirrors) called Horns, which is based on the novel by Joe Hill. The movie stars Daniel Radcliffe (Kill Your Darlings), Juno Temple (Afternoon Delight, The Brass Teapot, Killer Joe, Dirty Girl), Max Minghella (The Social Network), Heather Graham (The Hangover Part III), Joe Anderson (Supremacy), James Remar (Django Unchained), Kathleen Quinlan (Apollo 13), and David Morse (The Green Mile). 

IAR's New York Correspondent Justine Browning recently had the absolute pleasure of sitting down with Daniel Radcliffe and Juno Temple about their work on Horns. The two talented young actors discussed their new film, connecting with their characters, the media's affect on celebrity, flashback scenes, and how they choose projects.

As an added bonus, IAR's Managing Editor Jami Philbrick attended the Horns Los Angeles press conference and spoke to author Joe Hill. Here is what he had to say:

IAR: How close do you think the final cut of Horns is to the original source material that you wrote?

Joe Hill: I think it is tremendously close to the book in the most important way, which is that it is very true to the spirit of the characters in the book. It is also very true to the plot mechanics. There is a lot of scenes right from the book that are in the film, but I think the most important thing for me was I hoped that the characters would feel like the characters in the book. I think Dan, Juno, Max and everyone else brought so much heart and so much ability to it that they really did bring those characters to life in a special way. There are two ways to screw a film up when you adapt it from a book. You can totally forget the source material and just run off and do a completely different story. Then it is like, why did they even bother to adapt something in the first place? But you can also be so faithful to the source material that you wind up with something that is completely dead on the screen, and it just sort of plods along. For a work of art to succeed, it needs to dance not plod. I think Keith Bunin did a terrific adaptation at the screenplay. He cut all the right notes, but it never bogs down, and it covers a huge emotional range and does it with a very light touch. I am tremendously proud of it.


In the aftermath of his girlfriend's (Temple) mysterious death, a young man (Radcliffe) awakens to strange horns sprouting from his temples.

Horns opens in theaters on Halloween, October 31st.
