It Came from Netflix Instant vol. 11   Leave a comment

Welcome back! AtomicSam.com has been been down for a while, but after much contemplation I figure there is no better day than today to wake it back up.  With that, I bring to you the latest edition of my favorite ongoing segment, It Came from Netflix Instant!  I sort through the endless options on Netflix and find the movies that are worth your time.

Horns – 2013

Horns is a smart adaptation of Joe Hill‘s 2010 horror novel.  The story follows Ig Perrish, who, after being accused of murdering his girlfriend, finds that he is growing devilish horns.  Anyone he talks to spills their darkest secrets to him and will do what ever wicked deeds he commands them to.  Ig elects to use his new found powers to find his girlfriend’s real killer.

I think Horns might have worked better as a mini series, considering the movie lacks a lot of the back story and character development that book offers.  But, if this is an indicator of how his other work will adapt to screen, Hill may very well inherit his father’s (Stephen King) mantel as one of the modern masters of mystery and horror.
