This film is from the book of the same name by get this Joe Hill (Stephen King’s son). Dam that’s good. Aja made it his own with stunning cinematography to go with.  Horns is big leap from Alexandre Aja’s last few films like The Hills have Eyes and Piranha 3D and by the way he is a french director who is trying to make it in the U.S. in this supernatural thriller à la twin peaks.

Here is a cool film with horror, supernatural thriller, romance with some odd ball character thrown in the mix, and it has its funny moment.
