I went and saw "Horns" (wikipedia link) with @lookingglassart on Friday. The gore was a bit over-the-top and unnecessary to the storytelling taking place. Aside from the shock value, it made it less enjoyable for me. It didn't suit the tone of the film. I would still highly recommend it! It is a tale of woe with fantastic elements added in which makes the hero's journey that much more interesting and appealing. Daniel Radcliffe does a good job in the film and everyone's performance is on par. It has some very amusing bits, as well as some very disturbing bits. A nice indie film with some clever surprises.
