# Magic and madness in the world of poetry #
Since the tragic death of his girlfriend, literature professor Samuel Solomon (Elliot Cowan) has been suffering from a nightmare in which a woman becomes the victim of a brutal ritual murder. When the woman from his dreams is found murdered under exactly the same circumstances, Samuel is about to enter a fearsome world dominated by the seven muses...
Since I am a big fan of the Spanish Horror Cinema, I watched the new film by Jaume Balaguerò, who already convinced me as a director with REC and SLEEP TIGHT. With MUSE (based on the novel "The Thirteenth Lady" by José Carlos Somoza) he has created an atmospherically dense, international and convincingly cast horror film that is full of atmosphere, tells an interesting mystical story, has a fantastic final twist to offer, but unfortunately also has its lengths and some script weaknesses. The beginning and the end of the movie are the finest spanish genre cinema, the middle part unfortunately only average, among other things because of subplots, which are quite clichéd and predictable.
