The 24-year-old stars as the protagonist in an adaptation of Joe Hill’s horror novel of the same name, playing Ignatius Perrish, a man who awakes one morning after a heavy night on the tiles to find he has a pair of horns protruding out of his temples.
A privileged man, Ig – as he is nicknamed – suddenly finds himself with superpowers that many of us would trade an arm to obtain – to see people’s darkest secrets while forcing them to confess their sins.
Luckily he’s able to use this new worrying power while trying to convince the world that he’s innocent of the rape and murder of his girlfriend.
The dark 71-second trailer shows the cries of residents who seek justice for the death of the woman, while a voiceover tells the audience: “No-one is born evil. But sometimes, when you go through hell, the only way out is to walk deeper into the fire.”
The film, directed by Alexandra Aja, and also staring Juno Temple, Max Minghella and Heather Graham, is getting its UK release on Halloween.
It played at the 2013 Toronto Film Festival, when Daniel described the story as having “real horror and slasher horror elements but then has this incredible emotional love story in the middle of it,” he told Indie Wire.
Teaser posters have also been released to Empire, showing Radcliffe's character splashed on the front page of the local newspaper.
