Daniel Radcliffe, Juno Temple Share Favorite Halloween Costumes at ‘Horns’ L.A. Premiere

Many in the cast and crew celebrated the Los Angeles premiere of “Horns” on Thursday by wearing Halloween costumes at the Arclight Hollywood. Some celebs’ outfits really made an impression, with the costumes ranging from a Roman god to skeletons to forest fairies.

Daniel Radcliffe and Juno Temple, the stars of the dark thriller, did not arrive to the carpet in costume. After seeing an especially elaborate costume, they joked with one another and Radcliffe said, “Oh, look he’s trumping us.”

The costumes were a fitting complement to the film’s plot, which is rooted in religious and dark symbolism.

“The script was so original,” Radcliffe explained. “We live in a world with some very homogenous films and this was so distinct to me and it felt fun to make a really daring movie.”

The plot focuses on the physical and emotional transformations Radcliffe’s character goes through after Temple’s character is killed and he is accused of murdering her — growing horns in the process.

The former “Harry Potter” star called the horns one of the largest challenges of the films. “Because of the insanity of the situation at all times, as an actor you must keep it grounded in a very real and honest role even if the characters are living in an insane world.”

He described the role as walking the line between a drama and melodrama. Co-star Temple also said the script’s distinctness also engaged her immediately.

“It was one of those scripts that you couldn’t predict what was going to happen with it,” Temple said. “I had to get to the end to know where it was going. I also really, really wanted to work with Daniel.”

Many people involved with the film expressed their excitement to work with Radcliffe. The film is based on a novel by Joe Hill. Hill, who also served as an executive producer for “Horns,” said it was an honor to have such an accomplished actor appear as the lead in the silver screen adaptation.

“The character in the story covers a broad emotional landscape,” Hill said of Radcliffe. “He feels grief, pain, loss, love. He experiences joy, happiness and he goes mad. And Daniel Radcliffe was able to do all that and make it look easy.”

Though they did not don costumes on the red carpet, both Radcliffe and Temple shared with Variety what their best Halloween costumes have been in past years.

“I went as the Mad Hatter from ‘Alice in Wonderland’ last weekend,” Temple said. “And I’ve done a really good Sally from ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas.'”

Radcliffe added, “We don’t do Halloween as much in the United Kingdom, so I’m going to start more this year. But I was a pretty good David Bowie last year.”

Guests continued with the Halloween spirit at the afterparty at Wood & Vine, sponsored by Pax by Ploom. Radius-TWC opens “Horns” Oct. 31.
