A new, English-language trailer has been released for Jaume Balagueró’s supernatural murder mystery Muse, which looks like as classy an affair as we’ve come to expect from the acclaimed director. Released earlier this month in Spain, the film is currently being shopped for a US release date.
The eighth theatrical feature from Balagueró, who directed [Rec] and two of its sequels, as well as sublime suspenser Sleep Tight, Muse was adapted from Jose Carlos Somoza’s novel Lady No. 13.
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.
As well as the great Christopher Lloyd, Muse (original title: Musa) stars Franka Potente (The Conjuring 2, Creep), Joanne Whalley (Willow, 44 Inch Chest), Ana Ularu (Inferno) and Elliot Cowan (Howl).
