Richard John Taylor’s upcoming horror Muse has unveiled its official poster. The film stars Nicholas Ball as a literary agent who’s client Harry Newman (newcomer Jeffrey Charles Richards) is a world-renowned author struggling to come to terms with the untimely deaths of his wife and daughter.
Crippled by grief Retreating to his country house in the South of France, he forms an unhealthy attachment to a new neighbour (Emily Price) that soon turns to obsession.
Executive producer Mark Butler said, “It’s a terrifying psychological horror that gets under your skin, much in the style of ‘Hereditary’ – it plays on everyone’s fears of things that go bump in the night.”
The film, co-produced by Taylor’s production company LJQ and Altis International is the first in a slate of four horror films, with their next, Baba Yaga in pre-production and shooting next month in Bulgaria. His last film, The Krays: Dead Man Walking was the most successful non-theatrical British DVD of the year and will be followed by Vengeance, another collaboration between LJQ and Altis, currently in pre-production and shooting next summer.
