Dan Gilroy’s Nightcrawler is on of my favorite films in recent memory. So when I heard his next project was a Netflix original with Jake Gyllenhaal in the lead role once again, I was obviously interested. But that interest turned to near rabid fandom after taking in the debut trailer for Velvet Buzzsaw. I wasn’t ready.
Unlike Nightcrawler, Velvet Buzzsaw seems to fully embrace the horror genre. The trailer, below, showcases plenty of action, suspense, and the red stuff while awing with jaw-dropping cinematography and a star-studded cast. Simply put: watch the trailer, and watch it now.
Velvet Buzzsaw will premiere on January 27th at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival before hitting Netflix on February 1st. I know where I’ll be at the first of the month.
