High Tension director Alex Aja has apparently returned to horror greatness with Horns, which had its premiere last month at Toronto International Film Festival. Bloody Disgusting’s Mike Pereira was a huge fan – read his review here – calling it “an audacious, wonderfully twisted romantic horror fantasy.”
In the film, “After being blamed for the death of his longtime girlfriend (Temple), a small-town guy (Radcliffe) awakens one morning to find a pair of horns growing from his head.”
And now it has been picked up for US distribution by Dimension and RADiUS-TWC, per Deadline. Dimension’s Bob Weinstein tells the site, ““I enjoyed working with Alex Aja on ‘Piranha 3D’ [and] I think he’s made a masterful film in Horns, and I’m thrilled to continue our relationship.”
Max Minghella, Juno Temple, Joe Anderson, Kelli Garner and James Remar also star in the film. We’ll keep you posted on a release date!
