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

"Jake Gyllenhaal, Rene Russo, Toni Collette, Zawe Ashton, Tom Sturridge, Natalia Dyer, Daveed Diggs, Billy Magnussen, and John Malkovich star in the new mind-bending film written and directed by Dan Gilroy". But events start to get weird when some paintings by a virtually unknown artist take over the art scene of Los Angeles. But before long, the paintings themselves seem to be at the centre of brutal murders that have a supernatural bent, leading Gyllenhaal's character to believe they're cursed. The problem? Well, a woman who is not an artists tries to pass off her dead neighbours art as hers, and that doesn't turn out well at all. Velvet Buzzsaw aims to do the same within the world of fine art.

"Stunned by how surrealistic the paintings are, local art gallery owner Morf Vandewalt and his assistant Rhodora Haze put the artwork up for display to the public". 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.
