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
"...a decent adaptation that benefits from Aja's slick direction and Radcliffe's tremendously charismatic performance..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"A daring and intense performance from Daniel Radcliffe allows Horns to rise above its messy tonal shifts and silly second half."
‑ David Baldwin, We Got This Covered
"For the most part, Horns can't decide what it wants to be, whether genuine story of innocence lost, crude comedy or gory horror flick."
‑ Anthony Kaufman, Screen International
"Benefits from the helmer's twisted sensibility, but suffers from a case of overall silliness."
‑ Peter Debruge, Variety
"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
"Radcliffe has got the chops and determination to ensure a solid career post child stardom, but his performance here and feels like the probing of an actor eager to cast off the iconic role that defined him."
‑ Ian Gilchrist, HeyUGuys
"... a smart distributor could make 'Horns' into a big win for all involved."
‑ Drew McWeeny, HitFix
"While this all begins as a kind of supernatural black comedy ... the tone grows darker with each revelation."
‑ John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter
"Given the surprising sweetness of the story, HORNS could have a lot of appeal beyond horror fans."
‑ Chris Bumbray, JoBlo's Movie Emporium
"It trades some of the subtleties of novelist Joe Hill's source material for a Dogma-style mash-up of grim comedy and religious satire."
‑ Henry Barnes, Guardian
