John Burr attempts in Muse to bring to life the bloody Irish folktale of Leannán Sídhe. Adam, an uninspired artist, is called upon by a myseterious force. This mystery unfolds into a beautiful girl. Through this relationship Adam finds inspiration and is able to succeed in his career, at the cost of the lives of those around him. Director Burr's feature debut struggles in it's pursuit to be a fantasy horror film. While I really enjoyed the mythology behind the script and I think this is one of the strongest elements, it's simply not scary. Thankfully the film looks pretty good, and thanks to composer Alexander Rudd, it sounds even better. Adam's development through this film is the driving force and I thought it was enjoyable until the third act, which was a bit underwhelming. My biggest complaint is that it's just not scary. There is plenty of blood but no bite. Since I was asked by DarkCoast to review a horror/fantasy film, I find this to be troubling. I see on IMDB it's labeled as a thriller and that is a more accurate description. If you're interested in watching it's available on Amazon!
