Alexandre Aja United States, 2013

J. O.'s rating of the film Horns

This little oddity balances precariously between a teen rom-com and an over-the-top, violent whodunnit. What starts as a story following a romantic in mourning who's frustratingly caught up in his girlfriend's murder eventually (and abruptly) transitions into a gruesome revenge tale. It still has laughs, and it had a lot of heart at times, but half the cast was painful and it dragged on quite a bit.
