Horns, based on an acclaimed novel by Joe Hill (Heart-Shaped Box, NOS4A2), is fast becoming one of the most buzzed-about genre movies of the fall. It marks another bold choice of roles for Daniel Radcliffe, who first staked his horror claim with The Woman in Black in 2012, and it's got acclaimed High Tension and Mirrors director Alexandre Aja at the helm. Fans of Hill's novel had been waiting three years to see the fruits of this adaptation, and the official release of the first trailer during Comic-Con last month didn't disappoint. This film looks to be a weird, wild ride that will take Radcliffe places he's never been before, and now a new international trailer is here to bring us even more devilish footage.

For those not up to speed, Horns is the story of Ignatius "Ig" Parrish, a young man happily in love until his girlfriend Merrin (Juno Temple) is murdered and he's widely accused of the crime. One day some time after the murder, Ig wakes up from a hard night of drinking and finds two horns have sprouted from his forehead. As the horns grow, and as Ig tries to figure out what they are and how to get rid of them, he also discovers they've given him the power to compel people to express their darkest secrets. With this frightening new ability at his command, Ig hopes he can discover who really killed Merrin. From there, it only gets weirder, in a wonderful way.

Check out the new trailer -- full of fire, blood and snakes -- below, along with the new U.K. poster.

Horns opens in U.S. theaters on Halloween.
