Set in the world of modern art in Los Angeles, a series of paintings by an unknown artist appear on the scene and become critical darlings and earn millions in sales and resales.

It's fun to see him play such a role of the art-obsessed critic who suddenly realizes that these paintings are alive and that anyone who is in possession of them should box them up.

Directed and written by Daniel Gilroy, the film will start streaming on Netflix from February 1.

Stay tuned to Horror News Network for complete coverage of Velvet Buzzsaw as it breaks.

The freaky titled film begins when a grouping of unique paintings have been found at a dead hermit's apartment.

Sevilla reach agreements for Barcelona forward Munir and Ajax youngster Wober
Munir became Sevilla's second signing of the day, following their capture of Ajax defender Max Wober earlier on Friday. Sevilla had met with Morata's representatives over a potential deal but found the proposed loan move too expensive.

While the Velvet Buzzsaw trailer itself impresses, the cast list only heightens it.

It's the ideal back story for a critic and his art dealer associates whose only interests are to make a buckload of money. Dark and disturbing paintings daubed on cardboard are unearthed in the apartment of a deceased man by his curious neighbour, Josephina (Zawe Ashton), who knows that he has no friends or relatives coming to collect his belongings. Watch the trailer for Velvet Buzzsaw, starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Rene Russo, and Toni Collette, in the player above!

All art is risky.
