Daniel Radcliffe is a having A Moment. With the trailer for Kill Your Darlings just released yesterday, we’re now getting a glimpse of his other upcoming project, Horns, in the form of some images revealing his titular problem.

Horns, directed by Alexandre Aja (The Hills Have Eyes, Piranha 3D), follows an unassuming man named Ig (Radcliffe) who is accused of brutally murdering his beloved girlfriend Merrin (Juno Temple). Though Ig maintains his innocence, people have a really hard time believing his story when he starts sprouting devilish horns out of his forehead apropos of nothing. Gruesome as they may appear, the horns have the strange ability to force people around Ig to tell the truth, making this murder investigation just a little bit easier than he might have anticipated.

The stills, courtesy of EW, show Ig in three states of horniness (not that kind, grow up), ranging from before Merrin’s death, in happier times,to his full incarnation looking satyr-like and emerging from a smoky bar that looks like the pits of hell itself. Should I insert my obligatory joke about Radcliffe being used to having unusual forehead features here? I’m looking forward to hearing more about this movie, which is adapted from a novel by Joe Hill (Stephen King’s son), and seeing a full length trailer that explains the process behind growing horns. Because Ig looks horrified.
