Art Has Never Been as Vicious as in VELVET BUZZSAW

'Velvet Buzzsaw' Trailer: Jake Gyllenhaal & Rene Russo Reteam with 'Nightcrawler' Director Dan Gilroy

Not all art is pretty, but the art that is featured in the contemporary art world scene in Los Angeles is just plain nightmarish in the Nightcrawler director's thriller.

Local art gallery owner Morf Vandewalt (Gyllenhaal) and his assistant Rhodora Haze (Rene Russo) are first surprised by how realistic the paintings look and can nearly swear that is you look at them long enough, they move. A fantastic artist is found dead and it turns out he's been painting with blood on many of his works. Velvet Buzzsaw aims to do the same within the world of fine art. He stumbles upon a collection of paintings by a man who has passed away, unaware that they have unusual supernatural powers that prove to be deadly. That's quite a long list of A-listers involved with Velvet Buzzsaw, a darkly comedic horror from the same folks behind Nightcrawler. Velvet Buzzsaw will begin streaming on Netflix on February 1st, 2019; but the film will also get its own limited theatrical release.

Rene Russo plays Rhodora Haze, an art dealer who promises to make Josephina rich.

The film has a stellar cast, which also includes Zawe Ashton, Natalia Dyer, Tom Sturridge, Daveed Diggs, Toni Collette, John Malkovich and Billy Magnussen.


Velvet Buzzsaw looks as though it will be the first wholly unique motion picture of the year.

Art can be seriously risky.

If you've never seen it, we fully recommend you check it out (it is available on Netflix right now), but we're even more excited for their follow up project, the fantastically titled Velvet Buzzsaw (a movie we mentioned in our 9 most anticipated 2019 Netflix exclusives).
