- Daniel Radcliffe has horns, but he’s not as timid as the protagonist in Kafka’s Metamorphosis. Also, people do what he says, and he has some wicked fun with that.
- A rich back story, complete with kids double-daring each other to slide down a log chute.
- Enough magical realism to enter us into the story world, but not so much as to make the film irrelevant or distracting.
- A satisfying ending that I did not expect.
Dark Muse Value
- Is evil just giving people what they want?
- Why do we put horns on other people?
- Where does evil originate?
- Under what circumstances am I corruptible?
Verdict: WATCH (Amy at The Midnight Society agrees)
Who’s read the book too? How do they compare?
