Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's a shame that Aja's noncommittal attitude wins out over the tragic dimension of the story, because there could have been something more substantial here."
‑ Calum Marsh, Film.com
"Take out Ig's horns and snake attacks and special powers, and what is left is an attentive exploration of fate and loss that flirts with profundity."
‑ Dustin Putman, DustinPutman.com
"Horns may bounce from fable to black comedy, but that erstwhile boy wizard keeps the focus where it belongs."
‑ Christian Toto, HollywoodInToto.com
"If you can suspend your disbelief and embrace the somewhat silly concept, there's fun to be had watching Daniel Radcliffe dance with the devil."
‑ Chris Tilly, IGN Movies
"Horns sometimes feels like a uncomfortable departure for Alexandre Aja, but Radcliffe's demonic performance strikes a devilishly indulgent balance between dark comedy and romantic tragedy that saves the day."
‑ Matt Donato, We Got This Covered
"Benefits from the helmer's twisted sensibility, but suffers from a case of overall silliness."
‑ Peter Debruge, Variety
"Horns is right up there with The Cabin in the Woods as among the most engrossing horror flicks ever made in and around Vancouver."
‑ Steve Newton, Georgia Straight
"While Horns is a mixed bag - tonally, it can't quite decide if it's fable or grit - the flick's fine."
‑ Staci Layne Wilson, StaciWilson.com
"Feels almost like they took a Nicholas Sparks script and gave it to a schlocky horror director who hated it. None of it works, and it's pretty much a waste of time on every level."
‑ Vincent Mancini, FilmDrunk
"...a decent adaptation that benefits from Aja's slick direction and Radcliffe's tremendously charismatic performance..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"While this all begins as a kind of supernatural black comedy ... the tone grows darker with each revelation."
‑ John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter
"Aja's version is a blunt, Ghost Rider-esque superhero origin story about a kid and his devil-themed powers, punctuated by moments of weird comedy."
‑ Tasha Robinson, The Dissolve
"Aja directs this tragedy as if it's a flavorless comedy."
‑ John Gholson, Movies.com
"Fans of horror and of Radcliffe will have some reason to celebrate, and Horns delivers some soaring moments for both. The book's readers will be less lucky."
‑ Kristy Puchko, CinemaBlend.com
"Predominantly a failure of tone, "Horns" has plenty of admirable traits and yet dooms itself from the outset. It's an admirable conceit stuffed into far less subtle material."
‑ Eric Kohn, indieWIRE
