DarkCoast has released writer/director John Burr’s (Boots, The Last Kill) 13-time award winning feature, LEGEND OF THE MUSE (aka MUSE), onto Amazon today, July 10th.
Stitched together with elements of a psychological thriller, the supernatural and mythological Irish influences, LEGEND OF THE MUSE illustrates a mutual obsession that is turned into a violent nightmare when a struggling painter is forced to choose between his morality and his muse.
“A supremely excellent film. A darkly amorous tale of love, passion and death put together rather terrifically by writer/director John Burr in his first full-length feature. I have seen many a horror film, but few that carry such a romantic feel throughout the proceedings, so special kudos to him,” wrote The Cinema Junkie.
LEGEND OF THE MUSE is a twisted, haunted fairytale based on an Irish legend that explores the thin line between passion and obsession. Adam (Riley Egan) is a struggling painter longing to find artistic success, who also hopes to gain the affection of Maria (Kate Mansi) without her successful artist beau (Lou Ferrigno, Jr.) getting in his way. But Adam finally gets a shot at both when he encounters his true muse – a haunting, ethereal woman with a mesmerizing gaze called the Leannán Sí (Elle Evans) – he becomes utterly captivated, as his obsession seems to manifest her presence. With her by his side, Adam’s artistic passion is ignited with help of local gallery owner Valerie (Jennie Fahn). Soon, Adam becomes trapped within a torrid love affair, realizing the intensity of her unwavering dedication, ultimately leading to violent chaos. Eventually, Adam must face the consequences of an obsession that verges on madness, and he is forced to choose between his morality and his muse.
“I would highly recommend checking it out. If you love horror movies filled with ghost stories, chilling scenes, and a strong plot, this will certainly be the late night watch for you,” wrote Horror Shots.
