Retroactive Episode 5: Horns (2013)


Well folks, it's time to dredge up the sins of the past with another retroactive episode of Horror Movie Night. This one takes us back to Stephen King's, er, Joe Hill's cinematically adapted (and eviscerated) Horns. Harry Potter fans died inside just about as much as we did while watching this one, and our fury is similar in scope and depth as Daniel Heathcliff's character here, who one day wakes up with hard protrusions he can't explain. Sounds a lot like every morning for the HMN guys...
