's transformation in the upcoming Horns
has been kept largely under wraps ahead of the movie's Halloween release date. But some totally amazing new pictures making the rounds online today show just how complete Radcliffe's devilish transformation will be.
With the aid of what appears to be some serious old-school monster-movie practical effects, Radcliffe looks like a full-fledged demon in these terrifying images. (Seriously! I peed a little when I saw these things.)
For those wondering what the heck is going on here, Radcliffe is starring as Ig Parrish, the guy everyone thinks murdered his girlfriend about a year before the movie starts. One day he wakes up with a bad hangover, a headache, and horns sprouting from his head, and he soon realizes the horns grant him some devil-like powers of influence. The movie's based on Joe Hill
's 2010 novel of the same name, and with an R-rating, it seems to be keeping the book's dark side fully in tact. Hill, by the way, is Stephen King's son, and happens to be his dad's spitting image. That's him in the last picture, trying on the horns for himself.
