Netflix Cuts into the Horror Genre With Velvet Buzzsaw

Recently, Netflix dropped a trailer for one of their craziest and most innovative movies yet. The film’s called Velvet Buzzsaw and it looks INSANE. The ridiculously talented Jake Gyllenhaal plays a bizarre art curator who’s bored with the monotony of his life and his profession … that’s until some new paintings grab his eye.

But because you read the headline, you know he doesn’t end up reinvigorated about life and teaches art to the blind. It turns out there’s a reason the paintings have such striking reds … and if you stare at them long enough they might start moving.

The tone of the movie feels so strange and out there; everything in the trailer creates this off-putting and disturbing atmosphere and I love it! Written and directed by Dan Gilroy (the mind behind Nightcrawler), this is the kind of creative film that I’m glad Netflix is producing.
