‘Nightcrawler’ Alums Jake Gyllenhaal & Dan Gilroy Paint a Horrifying Picture in New Trailer for ‘Velvet Buzzsaw’

Writer/director Dan Gilroy and leading man Jake Gyllenhaal first showed us their collective dark side with 2014’s Nightcrawler. Set in the seedy underworld of Los Angeles, the subversive crime thriller became an instant critical darling and earned about five times its meager budget at the box office. Now, the two are re-teaming for a new film which captures the horrors of the modern art scene.

Netflix just released a new trailer today for Velvet Buzzsaw, a movie where, “mega-collectors pay a high price when art collides with commerce.” In the clip, tapestries come to life to maim, mangle, and burn their highfalutin owners. The trailer shows off Gilroy’s signature blend of heightened realism, satire, and dark imagery, and you can watch the entire clip for yourself below:

Toni Collette will also appear in the film after earning tremendous praise for her role as an unforgettable matriarchal scream queen in last year’s Hereditary. The film will also star Rene Russo, Zawe Ashton, Tom Sturridge, Natalia Dyer, Daveed Diggs, Billy Magnussen, and John Malkovich. Velvet Buzzsaw will begin streaming on Netflix on February 1st, 2019; but the film will also get its own limited theatrical release. Something tells me the folks at Netflix know they have something special on their hands with this one!

Stay tuned to Horror News Network for complete coverage of Velvet Buzzsaw as it breaks.
