Daniel Radcliffe’s Evil Side Revealed in “HORNS”
Pardon ‘Harry Potters’ wild-wild ways as he gamely freakish himself for art’s sake, yet mesmerizing his global audience anew.
The cute boy wizard we all held dear have grown-up really fast, been braving more sensible, but refreshing roles to say and never ceases in reinventing himself on-screen – a blue blooded actor, indeed.
This Holloween, he set aside his magic wand & nerdy glasses over those creepy headwear and joined forces with the underworld circle of Hellboy & Maleficient via the horror flick “HORNS” – a film adaption of 2010 gothic- novel of the same title by Stephen King’s equally genius son, Joe Hill. On the other hand, french film-maker Alexandre Aja who is likewise brilliant in making black comedy thrillers ie.,“Mirrors”, “Piranha3D “& “Hills Have Eyes” (among gory others) has breath life to the universal myth of satans & demons after following the cult-inspired book.

One fateful morning after a lonesome drinking spree, he had his life’s greater nightmare even upon waking-up with horns proudly sprouting from his temples that he could gaze no longer at his grotesque reflection in the mirror (well with those, WHO CAN?). The intimidating tamarraw horns, nevertheless, gave him newfound ability as it possess diabolical powers at his spell – enough to feed his wrath in finding the true grim ripper of his beloved girl in vain. In an interview, he quoted:
It’s a very, very different type of part than anything I’ve done before, the role was “deeply emotional and also incredibly outrageous in some way
(Radcliffe remained a real stunner even with those satanic-looking horns on)
