[spoiler alert] Please do not read until you watch Episode 11 of the Anime

At Episode 9, and Episode 10, when Rem uses her horn to engage beasts, it seem that she cannot control herself. At Episode 10, She also attacks Subaru and Ram. Subaru has to hit her horn to bring her out of madness.

However, in the flashback when Ram and Rem were young, none of them become crazy when they use their horns.

Could anyone explain to me ? Does madness is the side-effect of using horn, or there are any other causes ? Because as I see, it happened to Rem in the forest with mabeast (demon beast) only.

In that fight she was overwhelmed and, in fact, was probably going to die because she was too weak to kill all the wolves. She was also hysterical because she had to kill the king wolf who casted a curse on Subaru, and if left to run its course would have killed him a few hours later.

So under normal use, she would not have her personality affected, but in this case she was in a hysterical rage to save Subaru, and exhausted almost all of her power on the minions before the boss she needed to kill showed itself. However, why her personality changes when she loses control is not explained, and I can only assume it to be a combination between her already unstable mental state, her being drained of power due to the fighting, and possibly a side effect of her Oni transformation that is normally manageable.

Could be blindness of anger or something along the lines of rem not being able to firefly control her demon powers
