If you’re looking for a fun Halloween night at the movies, “Horns” will most likely disappoint you. Daniel Radcliffe plays Ig Perrish, a local boy suspected of murdering his girlfriend, Merrin (Juno Temple). We think he’s innocent, but it doesn’t help that he grows horns and starts looking like the devil. Don’t ask. The movie, directed by Alexander Aja, has enough exposition for two ordinary movies because without constant explanations it would be impossible to understand. I was more than willing to go on this journey but after a while I just stopped caring. Radcliffe, a long way from Harry Potter, seems to be having fun with his juicy role, but there’s only so much he can do to rescue this lumbering film. It’s not that it’s a horrible movie; It has some creepy moments, and enough visual effects to keep you from getting bored. But I kept waiting for it to step up to that next level; sadly, it never happened.
