The Goat Horn (Bulgarian: Козият рог, translit. Koziyat rog) is a 1972 Bulgarian drama film directed by Metodi Andonov, starring Anton Gorchev and Katya Paskaleva. The film is set in 17th Century Bulgaria where Kara Ivan’s wife is raped and killed by four local Ottoman feudal masters. Having disguised his daughter as a boy, and trained her in the masculine art of warfare over a period of ten years, they set out to take revenge.
The film won a Special Prize of the Jury at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival. The Goat Horn was selected as the Bulgarian entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 45th Academy Awards, but was not accepted as a nominee.

According to the Spanish journalist Moncho Alpuente, due to the sexual repression in Francoist Spain, arthouse cinemas were frequented by people expecting to watch more skin than what censorship allowed in commercial theaters. As a result, The Goat Horn was a box-office hit in Spain since the censorship board had allowed sexual scenes.
