Celebrated horror filmmaker Jaume Balagueró has summoned the first images for his latest English-language effort, Muse, which bows on December 1st, 2017 in the director’s native home of Spain.
Coming to us by way of Bloody Disgusting, the moody stills are designed to be more of a showcase of the film’s international cast than anything else, which includes the great Christopher Lloyd (Back to the Future), Joanne Whalley, Elliot Cowan, Franka Potente, Ana Ularu, Manuela Vellés and Leonor Watling.
As the creative mind behind Sleep Tight and [REC] – arguably one of the finest found footage films ever made – there’s a particular air of excitement swirling around Jaume Balagueró’s latest creative venture, which itself is based on José Carlos Somoza’s Spanish novel, The Lady Number Thirteen. Balagueró adapted the supernatural thriller to the big screen alongside his frequent collaborator Fernando Navarro, and below you’ll find an overview of the story and all of the horrors that lie in wait:
SAMUEL a professor of literature flicks at the University since the tragic and unexpected death of his girlfriend. Since then, he suffers a recurring nightmare in which a woman is brutally murdered by a strange ritual.
When the same woman who appears every night in his dreams is found dead in identical circumstances, Samuel sneaks into the crime scene to investigate. There he meets Rachel, a young woman who does not know anything, but he claims he also dreamed of the murder. Together, we will make every effort to discover the identity of the mystery woman, plunging into a dark world ruled by the muses that inspired the poets of all time.
Further details on an international release were not disclosed at the time of writing, but given Muse claws its way into Spanish theaters on December 1st, we assume Balagueró’s new pic will then make its way overseas early next year.
