On January 10, Netflix released the trailer for their new supernatural horror film Velvet Buzzsaw. Written and directed by Dan Gilroy (Nightcrawler, Roman J. Israel, Esq.), the film is about a supernatural force that exacts revenge from people whose greed gets in the way of their art.

The movie seems to contain Gilroy’s typical social satire and sense of visual style, with a genre approach unlike anything we have seen before. Velvet Buzzsaw looks extremely creepy, with some terrifying imagery found in the latter part of the trailer. The cast he assembled is excellent, led by Jake Gyllenhaal, Rene Russo, and Toni Collette.
