There are two fascinating releases this week. The first, opening today, is Horns starring Daniel Radcliffe. The plot described in IMDB is that Radcliffe’s character is dealing with the death of his girlfriend when he wakes up to find horns sprouting from his head. The film is directed by Alexandre Aja who has a patchy track record that includes Piranha 3D (2010).
The film that I am really looking forward to is Nightcrawler which opens on Friday starring the extremely talented Jake Gyllenhaal. He plays a strange young man who forces his way into the Los Angeles crime journalism scene before going to more extreme lengths to get the story. The trailer looks fantastic and has me excited.
The other significant release in time for Halloween is Ouija that opened number one in North America last week.
Next week, and say it quietly, Interstellar is released.
