Video: Dan Radcliffe talks about the true meaning of “Horns” in On-Set Interview

In a continuation of ET Canada’s Horns coverage, the network has released additional video interviews with star Daniel Radcliffe. Watch the video, or read some highlights below!

ET Canada: Do you find yourself naturally gravitating towards darker material?

Dan: [Horns is] very dark but it is also very, very funny, and in parts deeply emotional, so it’s not just darkness and violence and horror. But I definitely think I must have some inclination towards darker things.

ET Canada: How would you handle having a power where you can hear people’s deepest, darkest thoughts? Do you think that’s as frightening as [I do]?

Dan: Oh God, that’d be awful. Yeah, no, it’d be terrible. That’s one of the things I like about the script as well, because it kind of shows the true capacity for awful thoughts that we all have.

There is also a longer version of the interview available to view here, where Radcliffe further discusses the meaning of the film:

ET Canada: Do you think you have a Devil inside of you?

Dan: In a way, that’s what the film is about. It’s about what we can become when the circumstances of our life kind of conspire to put us at our worst point…I think what’s so heartbreaking for Ig is that he was in love with this girl and they’ve been together for a long time. And not only did he lose her, but he also lost the person that he was with her. And he knows at the beginning of the story that he has no hope of ever re-finding that in himself.

Does it sound like the kind of film you’d like to see? For fans of the book, does it sound like a faithful adaptation? Let us know in the comments!
