Muse is the upcoming Spanish Horror film from Jaume Balagueró, most notably known for found footage breakout hit, REC (2007). Firstly, subtitles haters can rejoice – this is an English language film. This eerie supernatural thriller promises exploration into the unknown, akin to a subtler Insidious. Watch the english trailer, above.
Samuel Salomon, a literature professor, has been off work for almost a year after the tragic death of his girlfriend. Samuel has been suffering from a recurring nightmare in which a woman is brutally murdered by a strange ritual.
Suddenly, the same woman who appears every night in his dreams is found dead in exactly the same circumstances. Samuel sneaks into the crime scene and there he meets Rachel who has also dreamed about the murder.
Together, they will do whatever they can to discover the identity of the mystery woman, entering a terrifying world controlled by the figures who have inspired artists throughout time: The Muses.
The screenplay is written by Balagueró and Fernando Navarro (Veronica, writer) , and is based on the Spanish novel The Lady Number Thirteen by José Carlos Somoza. Muse stars a varied, international cast, including; Elliot Cowan (Howl), Franka Potente (The Conjuring 2), Ana Ularu (Inferno), Joanne Whalley (Willow), Christopher Lloyd (Back the the Future) and Leonor Watling (The Oxford Murders).
The film will be released in Spain on December 1st. We anticipate a North American release very soon, but unfortunately have no concrete date as of yet.
