Will do for museums what 'Jaws' did for beaches.
Now this one is disturbing. Writer/director Dan Gilroy (Nightcrawler) reteams with Jake Gyllenhaal and Rene Russo for a Netflix production that proves that art can be murder (or at the very least, murderous).
Set in the fine art world, Velvet Buzzsaw does not appear to be your stuffy, dry take on art curators. No, this one arrives complete with art that comes alive in a museum, a facility that appears like a cross between the Museum of Modern Art and the freakiest haunted house you've ever seen. Paintings come to life, exhibits have fatalistic intentions, and John Malkovich shows up with a drink in his hand.
With cinematography by Academy Award winner Robert Elswit (There Will Be Blood) and a supporting cast that includes Toni Collette and Daveed Diggs, the film appears part satire, part insane horror freakout. That's good enough for us.
Velvet Buzzsaw will premiere at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival before arriving on Netflix February 1st.
